Inspired By All the Little Things #34

IMG_1056

Today I have a card to share with you that I created for this week's Inspired by All the Little Things.  I am the hostess this week and I thought this would be the perfect kick off to the holidays.


I started off by cutting a frame die using kraft paper, then cut it again in black. I embossed the sentiment in white on the black inside panel then distressed it with white ink. I put strips of Score Tape on the back of the black panel before inlaying it into the frame because it warped slightly when I embossed it.  I stamped my red ornaments to hang over the frame like in the inspiration photo. I drew a line for the string with a white pencil crayon. It still looked like it needed a bit more so I added the snowflakes, held me breath and embossed them on the completed card.

What a beautiful card. Being a teacher, blackboards speak to me. Of course these days they use white boards; I'm dating myself.
