When I first started blogging, my focus was mainly on scrapbooking and cardmaking. I am still actively doing both, although not as often as I would like. So, here is the card I made for today's occasion.
I really love this new paper from Close To My Heart! It is the Creative Basics Veranda Collection. The cross was embossed on Vanilla Cream cardstock with clear embossing powder. Then I used a sponge to add Juniper ink shading. And I just can't use my Nestabilities die-cuts enough ~ LOVE 'em!
The card actually reminds me of vintage wallpaper! And the ribbon a chair rail! Of course I had to add distress ink along the edges to give it a bit of an aged look.
I hope you are having a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
