Sweet Darling ~ Card

Oct 16, 2013

Seam Bind­ing and Archival Ink make for a fab­u­lous com­bi­na­tion. I want­ed a lit­tle some­thing dif­fer­ent for the title of my card so I decid­ed to stamp the word­ing onto seam bind­ing. This effect reminds me of the cute satin tags I’ve seen on baby items in antique shops. And the best thing is this is a beau­ti­ful and super sim­ple way to cre­ate unique titles for cards, tags and lay­outs. I mean real­ly could it get any sim­pler?

Any­way, I had fun get­ting my fin­gers messy today. Not some­thing I usu­al­ly do as I am a super neat scrap­per and have nev­er liked hav­ing my hands dirty… nev­er, ever, ever. And I passed that gene right on to my Sweet Pea Ter­ri. That girl does not get dirty either. I wish I could have my son-in-law share with you the sto­ry of their first camp­ing trip. He is a Saint is all I have to say, I have nev­er laughed so hard! I hope you enjoy today’s project. Try­ing to think of some­thing to make for tomor­row. I have a feel­ing it...
