Life on the fringe

Today’s challenge at 365 cards required us to use fringe on two sides of our card. I must confess, I had the pear image made for quite a while but just this afternoon finished a card with it.


The image was made by stamping first with versamark then layering embossing powders to color it in. A really hot heat gun helps with this technique. The powders are from The Powder Keg and the technique was taught by Janelle (the owner herself). I stamped a saying on a panel of burgundy cardstock and layered that onto a creamy yellow card base. The scalloped ovals were layered with a foam dot and that saying is by My Sentiments Exactly. The fringe is from a Basic Grey Sugared fiber set. I thought the colors went pretty well.

That’s all for now, I need get dinner ready as I have some swap commitments that need to get finished and sent on their way to Canada.
