I thought this card would work well for a guy with a fall birthday.
It started with a left-over. See the frame around the opening? That was stamped with a My Favorite Things stamp. I stamped a sympathy sentiment over it, but it just seemed to bold and too plain. So, I used the coordinating die to cut it out. That left me with this great frame! I used a Recollections background stamp to stamp over the rest of the piece. I intentionally let it stamp "splotchy" and this was the second stamping. The sentiment is also from My Favorite Things and is stamped with dark brown ink on a separate piece of cardstock. I glued these two pieces together and mounted them on foam squares and adhered to the card base. All the layers are ivory.
I am submitting this to Darnell's NBUS Challenge #5. The frame stamp, the frame die and the sentiment were unused by me before this card. Thanks, Darnell!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
