retro sketch #6
Another week, another sketch :)
This one pushed me to create my first-for-this-blog (I think) square card. And how fun! I have a few matching envelopes.
I started out with a kraft card-base, and stamped the herringbone pattern from my clear & simple stamps background set (I'm working my way through it, can you tell? hee.) Then I grabbed my PTI heart prints dies, and cut into a square of "dearest jane" pattern paper, and with a smaller heart in my vintage cream layer. The thick embellishment is just 5 layers of coaster-board, sandwiched together, topped off with a brown patterned paper heart.... and a layer of glossy accents for some added shine :)
The sentiment is from lawn fawn's "making frosty friends."
Thanks for peeking!
ps, thanks for the sweet comments about my card photography - I've been having lots of fun playing around with different set-ups for each card! The most daunting step can be the editing! How much do you edit your photos? What are your steps?
