Independence Weekend!

Wow - where has this year gone? I guess I shouldn't complain. It's July 1, and we haven't cracked 100 yet (or been too warm much at all). Here's a little something to stir your muse.

So, this set shows you how the same products, design and placements can dramatically alter a card. The card above was put together with no distressing, and no textural elements.

This card is the same with the addition of distressing to the horizontal patterned paper, and a different edging on the border. The ribbon treatment is a little less flamboyant as well.

This card returns the flamboyant ribbon, uses the distressed edges on the patterned paper, and adds a different textured border along with a little stencil work. I will be teaching these techniques in an at-your-own-pace, video class soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by - I hope you have a great celebratory weekend (Independence and Canada Days). See you soon!



  1. What a gorgeous set of cards, love all the different styles/touches on them. I really like the distressed look of the stenciling on the 3rd card, too...and of course, you KNOW I love that sentiment!!!!

  2. All are awesome! I think I really like the distressed one with the stenciling and foofoo bow, love combos like that! :D


I adore comments. Make my day brighter and leave me some love!
