World Card Making Day



Hello creative friends, and Happy World Card Making Day.  I made this card for the OWH World Card Making Blog Hop, but for some unknown reason Blogger did not publish it at the scheduled time, and it was not linked properly.  This is my first time scheduling a post, and I may have done something wrong:)  My cards were received by OWH,  and that is really all that matters.  

I used OWH Sketch #84 for this card.


And here is my card…..


Supplies:
Paper:  Bazzill
Ink:  Versafine
Stamps:  Hero Arts
Dies/Punches:  Tag, ODBD and bow, Martha Stewart
Other:  Sakura white pen

  1. Nancy, the link didn't work (although I could see your card), but when I clicked on "home" on your blog header, it took me to your blog hop post,so hopefully everyone else will find it, too! I love the way you stamped on the kraft and then used the larger house on a tag - fabulous!

  7. Love your card because kraft makes lovely cards where the sentiment and stamping really show up! (not competing with patterned paper!) and the monochromatic aspect makes the message more intense and up-front!

  8. I love the monochromatic look you chose for this card. The details are lovely and it will certainly stand out in a sea of green, red, and blue to someone who would like a unique card!

  25. Cute card, I the use of die cut shape for the stamped image. I wonder if another "nestle" mat around the stamped image say in cranberry, would make your stamped "pop" a bit more?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like how you've replicated the background houses on the main panel. And LOVE the white accents on the kraft. Happy WCMD!

  27. The brown ink on the kraft has a nice homey feel to it...makes me think of gingerbread for some reason. I like the touch of white snow too. Thanks for hopping with us today!
