I haven't made cards in such a long time. I used to be a regular at many of the card-making blogs but as I started sewing more I made cards less. CPS is celebrating their 5th anniversary and I wanted to take part in at least a few of the sketch challenges. (I'd like to participate in all 15 and be entered in the grand prize drawing but I know it's not gonna happen!) Day 2 uses CPS sketch #166:
I made a simple thank you card for my grandpa.
I used cardboard and embossed the bottom with my Cuttlebug. It's hard to tell, but I used Tim Holtz soot distress ink on the embossing. I spray painted a piece of cardboard black and sanded the edges. The heart is a Sizzix die cut and I spray painted it gold. The stamp is an old one from the $1 bin at Michaels and I finished it off with a piece of twine.
Thanks for stopping by!
