Hey there, Antonio!
The Man came home the other day and needed a quick card for a co-worker who was transferring to another location. Everyone makes fun of us, okay him, for having a chicken. I thoughts I'd play off that for the card.
I started out with black cardstock, cut in half lengthwise, then folded in half to 5.5x4.25.
Then I stamped the wood plank background on white cardstock (from the scrap pile, thankyouverymuch) and trimmed the edges. I used Tim Holtz ink, Old Paper, and inked the stamp. I concentrated on the edges since the the center of the image will be covered with another layer.
my version and make your own set of cards.
I trimmed around the rope using a "bubble cut" (that's how I tell the Kinder kids to cut when they don't have to hard, straight lines), but you tear it to give the image a more rustic look. Go crazy. Add eyelets. I used the Provo Craft Silent Setter.
Here's the thing though, I don't need a silent setter anymore. I loved this when my kids still had nap times and that was the only time I could scrapbook in peace. Now though they're getting closer to adolescence and frankly I enjoy using a hammer. It's therapeutic. So I'm giving this one away. Here are the rules:
