When I saw this week's A La Card Monkey Sketch # 72 I just loved it. Simple yet really classy! I loved the plaid used for the background of the sketch and having just received my Frostwood Lodge DSP ( #124002) paper in my recent order I had to use plaid too. As I don't want to miss this week's challenge, I'm not including a lot of details just pictures that I hope you'll enjoy. The recipe is below.
My background paper is one of the beautiful plaids from the Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper. I ran it through the new Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to give it some more texture. This kind of reminded me of the old flannel pyjamas we got as kids.
Don't you just love this old Lodge? I've stamped it in Garden Green on Whisper White cardstock and mounted it on Riding Hood Red. A little border of Brushed Gold cardstock trims the bottom and a 1/8" garden green colour of satin ribbon is on top (non-SU).
|For the inside of my card I used the second sentiment from this stamp set stamped in Riding Hood Red. To continue the old world feel I used a full strip of the flannel DSP and edged it with the scallop border punch.|
