Fusion #15

(for the Holiday Cards & More post, please scroll down or click here)


Hi folks, it's time for another fusion challenge! As a reminder, you're free to be inspired by the photo, the sketch, or a fusion of both. It's always fun to see what everyone comes up with, and how different the cards are. Don't forget to vote for your favorites, too!

 I went with the photo for inspiration this time. Still loving the chalkboard effect, but I tend to prefer the "cleaner" look and not as much chalk dust : ) So I just emboss with white.


I wanted to do something a little different, so I split the Papertrey Stylish Sentiments into three parts. Patterned paper is mounted between the sentiments, and a Memory Box branch below. I was pleased with how this turned out, and it really couldn't have been easier! If I wasn't fiddling around with things, it would be a 5 minute card. 

Thanks so much for looking!

  6. Love how clean your embossing is (I'm sure the chalkboard effect was invented by someone who didn't have an embossing buddy! lol!) I would never have put those two DPs together with a pale blue branch, but somehow you always seem to make things work!
