Hello fellow bloggers,
A very quick post today, but this card has to be one of my favourites for ages. It is so simple, yet so effective.
I'm afraid I can't take the credit for this concept, I saw a similar card on Barbar Grays classroom last week. It was an example for the stamp set for the next class. I don't have the stamp set, which is letters and blocks. So I improvised.
I used Craft Artistist for the tiles. First I had to map out what letters I needed, then I found a very plain frame with a black outline, added plain, block type letters, as in the scrabble game, and added a beige background. The worst bit was cutting them all out.
The background paper is the same one I used for the tiles, I just made it more transparent so it was paler. I distressed around the card with Tim Holtz antique linen, added some card candy and a nice insert, and it was done.
Happy to say that my son-in-law loved it.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
