My Favorite Tim
Thursday, December 6, 2012
I've started out with a standard A2 card base in SU! Soft Suede. Next comes a piece of Kraft Core card stock that's been dry embossed. Then it was sanded, distressed, the sponged. Then for just a little more texture I used that says "believe", I wasn't looking for the word to show up so much as I loved the texture from the stamp.
The tree is cut from a yes...you guessed it...Tim Holtz die. I used a different color of Kraft Core this time. I stamped over the tree at a diagonal and then added some Ranger Glossy Accents and two different glitters. It was adhered with dimensionals. Then the "25" was die cut and adhered with my Xyron Sticker Maker.
I wanted something that was easy to mail and this fits the bill and actually a very simple card to make.
This card is also for the Queen for the Day Challenge over at Splitcoast where we are honoring Pam MacKay. I chose this card of Pam's to case. I used a tree and the "25" and a little of the color but pretty much everything else is different.
Here's what I used:
Paper: SU! Soft Suede and Coordinations Kraft Core Nostalgia Collection
Ink: Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Stamps: Tim Holtz Just Believe and Letter to Santa
