Well it is finally Friday! I am really loving the new background set that I got called Handcarved. I wanted to create a simple, quick note card. I embossed the stamp with Basic Black embossing powder and added the simple sentiment from the set A Happy Hooray. I love the contrast of the black and the kraft! This card was quick and easy! Thanks for stopping by!
Well, I placed my order for the new holiday catalogs the other day and it came today! So of course, I had to add a couple goodies in there for myself. I love backgrounds…like really love them. It is so easy to create a background and add a simple focal point to make a stunning card. I just got the background stamp Handcarved and had to try it out. For this card, I started out with a base of Kraft cardstock and stamped the Handcarved on a piece of Very Vanilla in Crushed Curry. Next, I added a focal point by using the thanks stamp from the set A Happy Hooray and a bit of Champagne Glimmer paper and some retired ribbon.
In other news, last week we took a day and went to some local shut-ins. It was a beautiful day to explore nature.
