Latest Card Creation



I needed a card for a friend who is expecting a baby. I decided to make use of the wonderful paper punches my friend Michelle gave me in the creation of this card. I used a couple of the square punches for the letters and backgrounds. Some green distress ink was added to the white cardstock. A ribbon in coordinating colors was the finishing touch. Unfortunately, I should have stopped there, but no; I decided to add distress ink to the edges of the card itself. The distressed edges don't look so great, but that was it for my cards in that blue color, so it'll have to do. Live and learn.
