This week on the Create blog, Paige put out the challenge to create a Halloween party invitation. I love Halloween parties. Actually, I just plain love Halloween!
I was all set to make a CAS, fun card, but while I was putting away a Unity stamp from another project, a stamp caught my eye. So, I changed my card entirely and came up with this one:
This card was pretty simple to make (other than the sewing...my machine is having tension issues). First, I created the sentiment in Word and printed it on Basic Grey patterned paper. Then, I broke out my stamp positioner and used it to stamp the Unity bird/frame image from the "When I'm With You" KOTM. I was holding my breath that the sentiment would be in the right place! Then I die cut the stamped image and at die cut another frame behind. Here's a close-up of the stamped image:
If you look carefully, you can see that the cream is actually patterned paper with writing on it. I went around the patterned papers with my sewing machine and added some twine and a My Mind's Eye button.
I'm joining in with Unity's Friends With Flair this week. If you get a chance, play along!
On a personal note, I found out that the big Federal grant I wrote in June got funded--woo hoo! It was a pretty good size grant (about $3 million), but unfortunately, I don't get any of the money (I wrote it for a client). I wish I could write grants for myself, but there aren't a lot of paper crafting grants out there. Ha!
Have a great day!
