card for a friend

I don't think I've ever done one of their challenges before, but I decided to use the above sketch from the Simon Says Stamp challenge.

For the stripe at the top and bottom, I used a piece of vellum, and for the scalloped edge I used a row of buttons (something I had seen a few times on Britta's blog)

The sentiment is from one of my favorite SP and Co sets, Mini Card Creations II.


I printed the text background on the card, and wish I had made it a bit lighter (more like a watermark)...it's a little bold for my taste which to me makes the card look busy- but I still really like how it came out!

  8. Love the text and the negative die cut. Printing the text on gray was a really clever move, which really helps it read a little less busy than you think.
