Just Saying Hi
I wanted to share a card I was able to sneak in some time to make with my new Hero Arts stamp set this week. I'm not usually one for vintage images but something about these telephones just got to me. I embossed the telephone on the patterned paper (from Making Memories) with detail embossing powder which tends to come out with a more mat finish. I like that it's not super shiny and thick.
I've also been slowly working each week to improve my abysmal sewing skills. I gave zig zag a try with this card and had things go a bit crazy behind the ribbon. But as often happens, mistakes make for great opportunities to correct. I added the eyelet and some thick ribbon and you'd never have known my sewing was crazy crooked under there unless I told you. Which I of course did because I'm honest like that. Happy Friday peeps and thanks for stopping by!
