>CAS-ual Friday Challenge 2
This is my entry for the CFC2 challenge this week, which was to use twine and buttons. Well, I needed to make some Christmas cards, so I did. I started with some Cool Caribbean cardstock, cut to 5.25 x 4 inches. I used my SU paper piercing set to pierce around the edges of the card, having the pokey side up for the front. After that, I ran my Broken China Distress ink over top of the raised cardstock, and I also did a bit of sponging on the edges of the cardstock. Then I took some Antique Linen Distress Ink, and sponged some ink on some other spots. I took the sentiment (Inkadinkado) and stamped it in Broken China ink. I found some hemp twine, and ran three lengths of is across the Cool Caribbean cardstock, putting it at angles. I used a now retired SU set to stamp the poinsettia on Antique Linen Distressed cardstock, in Tea Dye and the over stamp in Walnut Stain. Foam tape over a section of twine I taped together made the focal point. To finish, I cheated and used three button brads that I had in my stash on the bottom right hand side of the cardstock. I took a white cardstock base, sponged Antique Linen Distress Ink around the edges, then I foam mounted the Cool Caribbean piece to the sponged card base.
