Hi all, it's my monthly post featuring cards with the amazing stamps at CASual Fridays Stamps!
This one is the more traditional card. It uses the sentiments and flourish from Frankly, each embossed in a different color. I think that helps it balance my crazy retro bird! He's cut from a rather wild ribbon I got at a flea market from the 1970s. If you don't look at the colors, it would be right in style today with those chevrons! Everything comes back in various forms, right? I cut another bird from chipboard to give him some weight.
The next card uses Houndstooth, but it's not traditional. In fact, it's a little out there.
Right? Can you see it? Too much of a stretch? The large houndstooth totally reminded me of the aliens from Space Invaders.
Stamping just one column of the border stamp gives you houndstooth in a row, like Space Invaders, instead of the typical staggered pattern. I thought this would make a great older male birthday card (not too many of those in my stash!) Excited to see that it went so well with the "Blow It Up!" sentiment from Ka-boom!
Thanks so much for looking!
