365 Cards - ABCs of Crafting: DEF
And I'm back with more ABCs of Crafting and Day 22 of 365 Cards, being sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs! Today our letters of the day are DEF...as in Distressing, Envelope, and Fringe. I opted to use the 365 Card sketch from Day 20 as well. My image is Tinkerbell Honey from Sassy Studio Designs' Fairytale Collection, but I had this idea to make her into the Tooth Fairy for my card. I distressed the edges of my Kraft card stock layer as well as the tag with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. I also gave the Kraft card stock a crumpled and ripped look. That took care of the distressing. My envelope was clear so I decorated it with designer paper and pearls before adhering it to my tag. The fringe is from Joann Fabrics, and is so fun and colorful!
I glittered Tink's wings and added a few other embellishments for the finished product you see here. My sentiment is computer generated and mounted on one of the Fancy Tag dies. This card was one where once I got started my crafting mojo really just took over, and then when it was done I was really pleased with the results! I hope you like it as well and will leave me a lovely comment if you do. Thanks for coming back to take a peek.
