A Little Whimsical Thank You Card

This card was made using SRM Stickers "We've Got Your Border #57004 Thank you" in the Spring 2012.

I chose papers to match the colors of the little flags and then made a fence out of card stock. I distressed the edges of each fence post with Color Box Ink in "Mudslide".

I stamped the sheep in the same "Mudslide" ink color and cut a slit around his little face so it could slide over the fence. The sheep is an older EZMount Stamp by Sunday International.

A Simple Card of Printed Paper

I made this card using one of OWH's suggestions of taking two sheets of printed paper, one for the background, and the other for the images. I cut out the images and popped (using dimensional adhesives) them on the card. I also enhanced the leaves by adding a little more green ink because this image was so soft. Then I mounted the card on Black Card Stock.

Father's Day Fishing Vest

This card was made for OWH and is my little fishing vest. I used mesh netting (using the bag found around the Cutie Oranges) to cover the bottom pockets. I did a little stitching around the arms, added some "lures" of colorful brads and frayed embroidery floss, and distressed the edges of the pockets and vest with brown ink. To make the Best Dad button, I mounted the printed image on black card stock and then used scissors to distress and raise the edge to give it a dimensional look. And of course, it was made in the USA.
Here is a link to the Operation Write Home tutorial on YouTube for how to make this vest:
