Having a sweet friend over for lunch, you accept that friend as they are. My card today features a House Mouse stamp and dies from Sizzix, MFT, and Simply Defined on a masculine card.
Putting It Together
My sweetie loves skunks so I am always looking for skunky stamps. I found this one at a garage sale sponsored by a local scrapbooking store. It was a wood-mount stamp that I demounted by simply pulling the rubber and foam from the block.
I stamped the image with Slate on watercolour paper and then coloured it with Distress markers.
I trimmed the image panel and added a white frame with a lightweight white cardstock to look like a photo.
I did a dry fit with a plaid background paper and dies. One of the challenges I wanted to enter with this project is using photo corners. I don't have any 'real' photo corners so I used a die to cut some from heavy black cardstock for an old-fashioned look.
I didn't pop anything up on this card to make it flatter for mailing. I used a kraft cardbase to blend with the colours in the card.
Inside, I added a strip of scrap from the plaid and added a Unity Stamps sentiment stamped with Slate.
