I am popping in today with another card. Actually, I have a few note cards. I am still writing thank you notes. This suite of note cards is for this week's PTI Make It Monday Challenge #150. We are to make a Window Screen Card. Here is my take on the challenge.
I started with 3 5/8 X4 1/4 note card size. I tried to make the note card with the least amount of waist. This size works. I stamped the sentiment from PTI Script Sentiments stamp set across the bottom with Memento tuxedo black.
I am using PTI rustic white card stock. My go to white for awhile now. I die cut the largest frame in Fabulous Frames dies. I used the square image and stamped the coordinating frame from Fabulous Frames stamp set. I stamped a few of the frames in Memento Black. One square I clear embossed the whole frame after I stamped it in black. However, it was when I stamped embossed the frame in Versa mark and black embossed that I loved the results. The black just pops. I die cut the heart border in the same rustic white and layered for the screened effect behind the raised(foam tape) focal frame.
I then searched for the right sized die cut heart in my stash that would fit perfectly inside. The only one I had was WPlus 9 heart die from the Seasonal Sentiments die collection. I cut cut the heart in red and added dimensionals and slightly curled the top of the heart for added dimension. I decided I wanted to keep these note cards as simple as possible so I did not add any other embellishments.
I like this look! Once I got the initial design figured out, it went pretty quick. I need to make a few more and I will be finished. Of course, I do need to fill them out and get them to my students who gave me Christmas gifts. So thoughtful of them.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
