It’s a challenging recipe for the As You See It Challenge beginning with Masculine, embossing folder, die cut, twine and earth tones. I was stumped but when I saw Buddy Judy’s card I was inspired to give this challenge a try. Using inks from Kaleidacolor Autumn leaves rainbow ink pad, I inked up and cut down squares to 1-1/4″ and cut them in half for a triangle….my math did not fail me! Then I needed to use my math again and cut off 1-7/8″ from my kraft card base for my decorative triangles on the inner portion of the card. Using brown cardstock and Cuttlebug Herringbone embossing folder, adhered to the front panel. I then decided on a Spellbinder’s Labels 14 die and stamped the sentiment and party hat from Gina K Designs’ Dino-Mite stamp set.
Almost forgot the twine….I ran a line of glue to the edge of my triangle design and stuck my twine down. 🙂 I do believe that is everything: masculine, herringbone embossing folder, labels 14 die cut, autumn inks!
Thanks for stopping in for a peek.
