Anniversary Card

Joyce Wieler created this card originally and I had to case it as well. It used the brayered on embossing folder technique to color the background. Crumb Cake Ink was brayered onto the flat side of the embossing folder and the paper was placed on it and then run through the Big Shot. First time with this and it's not so bad....

Stamp Set: Strength and Hope, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Early Espresso and Crumb Cake
Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso
Accessories: Scallop and Large Oval Punches, Big Shot, Sizzix Ovals die, Oval and Polka Dots embossing folders, Early Espresso Striped Gross Grain ribbon, Antique Brads

Have a great Weekend!

Strength and Hope for Prostate Cancer

While doing research for my classes I found that each type of cancer has its own ribbon color. We see so much about Breast Cancer and the pink campaigns that the others seem to get left behind. This makes the set even more versatile as no matter what type of cancer someone has they need strength and hope to get through the process.
For this card I used Bashful Blue as light blue is the color for Prostate Cancer and it seems to be as prevalent among men of all ages as Breast Cancer seems to be for women.

Stamp Sets: Strength and Hope, Ribbon of Hope
Ink: Bashful Blue
Paper: Very Vanilla, Bashful Blue

Accessories: Houndstooth Embossing folder, Scallop Trim and Small and Large Tag punches, Linen Thread.

I really like the look of this card and the versatility of the set as well.

Have a great day!
