Sweater weather? Seriously? Not even close. Actually, I don’t see too much sweater weather in southwest Florida, but I do love sweater weather, and I love the New Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper!
The inspiration for this card is from Jen Mitchell’s fabulous sketch for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I loved working with this sketch and I know you will, too!
My husband and I often have a “Word of the Week” around our house. It’s usually a word that just pops out of our mouths, and, for some reason, makes us laugh, and then we can’t stop using it. This week’s Word of the Week is “befuddled”. I’m totally befuddled that it is August already and time to start working on fall cards.
I stumbled across a different way to combine the Squares and Window Frames Collection Framelits when I made this card. The brown square was trimmed with a Windows Frames Framelit that just cut the corners and I saved the little pieces to use on the Tangerine Tango that was cut with the next size larger Window Frames Framelits. It was a perfect fit! What do you think? Interesting?
The New Magnificent Maple Stamp looks beautiful stamped onto Chocolate Chip card stock and heat embossed with Tangerine Tango Embossing Powder.
New Burlap Ribbon. LOVE! What a fabulous addition to fall and/or masculine cards! I trimmed the stitched edges so it could be frayed, and cut it down the middle so it appears wider. The pieces that were pulled off to fray the ribbon were not wasted! I used them on the buttons. It is a little heavier than Linen Thread, and it’s wavy!
Make sure you visit Freshly Made Sketches to see what Jen M. and the ‘Clean Team’ have created with Jen’s fabulous sketch! We’d love to have you join us this week.
