Hey there, blog friends!! I had one heck of a rainy day yesterday so needless to say my day was full of rainy day activities. No errand running for me even though I needed to, lol! I think we all need a day like that every once in a while. Today I’m sharing a card from one of the new JustRite Stampers releases called You Are My Anchor. I tried to step outside of my current comfort zone and do something kind of collage like or like a theme card (like I used to do long, long ago!) I just love the compass points in this set and immediately my mind started flipping through possible uses. I pulled out some traveling themed papers to go along with those compass points.
I tried to stage the card to look like what my mind thought it would look like if you came upon a stack of old travel documents. I matted everything with a dark chocolate cardstock to give it some pop. I distressed a couple of edges and smudged ink around the others. I’m using Spellbinders Classic Circles LG and SM and cut the bottom of my accordian folded crepe paper with a border punch before distressing. I might be cuckoo but I’d send this to a man – even with the lace. Perhaps that’s why people keep asking for masculine cards and I keep thinking this is can be a masculine card, lol!!
