I decided to make a warm and cozy card today since today is the first day of November, and it is finally below 80 degrees here! I created the label by laying some MixTape down on card stock and then die-cutting it. Afterwards I stamped the Many Thanks sentiment in StazOn (since the tape was a bit slick), but I made sure the stamp didn’t ink that well to give it a worn, shabby look. I also stamped Schoolhouse Backdrops on a strip of Sunflower card stock and distressed it. It is so nice to create my own strips of patterned paper when I don’t have the right thing to match!
I had a lot of fun creating a card out of my normal style, and it was really fun to take cute stamps and make them a little more shabby with inking techniques and patterned papers!
(Also, this is one of those cards that was just impossible to photograph. The colors are much prettier in real life! Don’t you hate when that happens?)
