What a nice surprise... I'm waking up, having my first cuppa and browsing through some unread bloglovin' posts when, there! What? I see one of my cards!! This one:
And suddenly, I'm a Rock Star. . . a Retro Sketches Rock Star =]
Today, I also wanted to share a little trick I use when I don't want to add dimensionals which can be a little thick when you want to mail a card. We all occasionally have this on our craft tables:
I turn them into this:
And adhere strips of them around a layer to give a little lift. Or do this, when I just want to lift the die cuts:
When adding Tombo, I apply it to the debossed area to create thickness, then the embossed dots to add to the card. Here is how that turns out:
If you look closely, you'll see the background paper I've created for the inside using Word. I do this often for the card front, too:
This is one of a set I made called "It's all about you." The sentiment inside?
" Yes it is all about you...Today. Tomorrow, we go back to me, me, me!"
I'll submit this one: to Muse
this week as my homage to Therese's lovely inspiration card.
Happy Father's day, to my daddy in Heaven. I'll be thinking about you all day long. Wish you could have met Tom, Dad... he is honored to be number two dad on my list =]
