It's a bit short and sweet today I'm afraid. I am in the middle of decorating the second of two bedrooms, but I had an hour on Monday (after painting all the white work - base boards/window frames/closet doors) and couldn't resist popping in to my craft room to make a quick card to share with you.
I had bought this little telephone stamp by Hot of the Press called "Hello", and as it came with the perfect little sentiment - I had to make an old fashioned card. Here is a close up of the stamp, which was stamped with CTMH Chocolate and the little sentiment actually comes separate so you can place it where you wish.
The papers are from a lovely little Paper Collage Kit by Sarah Lugg, called With Love. Lots of fabulous papers, tags and borders and thought they were perfect for this card.
I distressed all the edges of all the layers and then used Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink, to ink all the edges.
I raised the stamped image up on some pop dots to add a little dimension, as this card is otherwise very flat (great for posting though).
For the inside, I used the same papers as the front. Also, I decided I just had to use the telephone stamp once again, however, I masked off the edge as I only wanted part of the stamp to show and therefore leaving room to write a message.
Sorry, for the short and sweet post - I really must get back to the decorating :-)
