Wow, that week went by so fast! I've actually met this lovely lady at a craft show, she is really sweet and talented. Nora is here sharing a cute little diy card project - she'll also be back with a studio tour too! She's on twitter too! Thanks for being here today Nora!
Hi, It's Nora from Nora Griffin! Today I thought we’d make a little something, especially since you’ve seen how I have more than enough supplies. One of my favorite things is handmade cards and here is how I made a little set recently.
I started with an old, falling apart dictionary, tearing out a few pages for the card background.
Next up is picking just the right stamp. I used kraft
colored cardstock for the card base, cut down and adhered the dictionary paper.
I used a paper distresser dragged along the edges to give the card a worn look.
I stamped a tree image right on top of the dictionary text.
Then I took a minute to dig through my ribbon jars to add a little more embellishment.
First though I stamped a greeting and mounted it on the card with foam tape to give it dimension.
The card is all done!
After making three matching cards…I did a little more stamping to tie together the set.
Here’s the set ready to be given as a little gift.
