I’m still working on that box of cards for my MIL. It is nice to have sketches to follow when you are making a box of individual cards. I have two cards to share with you today.
I spent some time cleaning up my stamp room yesterday. As I only had a 4 inch square of usable space left to create I figured it was about time to get busy cleaning. As I was cleaning I came across some of my Stampin’ UP! fabrics and some of my favorite retired stamp sets. It’s amazing the things that you find when you’re better organized! *smile*
This first card uses the Mojo Monday 219 sketch from this week. I’ve been wanting to incorporate fabric on a card and this card does just that! I decided to add various textures to the card, so you’ll notice the fabric is bunched in places rather than simply laying flat like paper. I was able to create that texture, by using the Stampin’ Up! multipurpose adhesive sheets. It makes you want to touch it, doesn’t it?
