It has been such a busy two-week period for me and our family, I didn’t have time to post! Anyway, I have about an hour all to myself today and since it is a Saturday, I chose to check out the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers (yes!). The inspiration site, Eastern Accents, is chock-full of eye candy, I almost forgot to make a card! When I saw this pillow though, I knew I have my inspiration piece.
I had this off-white, glittered corrugated cardstock for a while already and didn’t quite know what to do with it. Following the inspiration piece, I cut 4 half-inch strips along the corrugated lines, then another 4 half-inch strips across the corrugations (hmmm…I hope that is a word, lol!). Put the strips together alternately, and it became a cool, textured background for this birthday card. The font I used for the sentiment is BickhamScript Fancy with a mixture of Artists Script (for the double p). An owl feather (the tip was colored with a black marker for “ink”) finishes it off.
Papers used: Bazzill – Chablis & Blackbird, Recollections – glitter cardstock
