Do you own any 6x6 paper packs?
I have bought only a couple, as I like to have full 12x12 sheets for scrap-booking. However I do regularly purchase the 6x6 sampler packs Close to My Heart makes available to consultants. They are cut-down versions of each of the designs in the current CMTH paper packs. They are kind of like a sneak peak; seeing designer paper in the catalogue is just not the same, but having it in your hot little hands makes you want to buy it and play!
So I saw this card by Dena Hughes:
and decided to CASE it for some thank-yous I owe. I never bought the Surf's Up paper pack from last summer, but i DO have some 6x6 pieces of it.
Here's take #1:
Decided the sentiment panel was too small,
so take #2:
Satisfied with the design; decided to try a more neutral look,
Then remembered the current challenge at Keep it Simple!
So I made a couple more versions, using the paper from another 6x6 sample, Scholastic:
This final one is my fave,
See the library due date card ? How cute is that? Text upon text.
Also have to say, I LOVE this stamp:
|A True Thank You --M1029|
So much you can do with it, and the other M-sets with the Framework alphabet: paper-piecing, emboss-resist, colouring, blackboard technique... and what a bargain at $2.95!
