I spent most of yesterday making failed card fronts. Yes, I did. I had this idea, and I just couldn't let it go. I ended up with about seven card fronts that I intensely dislike, and not one of the cards was finished. Finally, I found myself in need of a Thank You card, so I pushed everything aside and went off in a totally different direction, and TA DA: a card:

I'm not sure that gold border works, but my earlier rut was using Ferro with a stencil, so this was my nod to that effort, I guess. It's not pretty on the end, but .. whatever. I think the blue strip by itself would have been boring.

Here you see some of my new goodies. :) I used some Carta Bella Rough and Tumble papers (LOVE the colors), my new Hero Arts Stylish Borders stencil, and my Stamptember Simon Says Stamp Thanks On A Line die. LOVE the font. I cut the die 4 or 5 times out of white and stacked them up for dimension, then put the blue one on top of it.

Except for the gluing and the waiting-for-Ferro-to-dry parts, this was a pretty quick no-stamping card. I'm quite happy with it. :)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. That is a fun font! The papers are groovy as well.

  2. I like the gold border, it breaks up the blue nicely. It's becoming so easy to make a card without stamping.

  3. Love it, great patterned papers, and I must have that die. It's a fantastic font!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
