Twofer Card Challenge-Harvest
I am finally trying this new blog where one has to show both cards, side by side because you have to use the same stamp but in a different way and for a different occasion. I decided to use the mighty squirrel since it is harvest time and they like to harvest their nuts..er....let's not go there. Anyway, if they were smart, they would eat like kings throughout the winter but they forget where they store their food...poor dumb-ass squirrels. I had to laugh because my hubby looked for his coat of arms..most people have ostrich plumes or a lion, even a fish but my hubby has, you guessed it, the mighty squirrel.
I enjoyed creating both cards and used colours for the harvest feel. I stamped and masked the squirrel. in both cards, and masked the pumpkins. (By masking, you ink and stamp the image on the card and duplicate the same image on a post it note. You cut out the image on the post it note making sure you have the glue side on some of the image. You take that cut out post it and place it on top of the main image and then you can stamp around it and lift the post it. Voila! It looks like the other images are behind the main image). The card on the right, is basically monotone in look with sticker corners and framed. The card on the left has a ribbon to differentiate between the 2 colours plus I stamped foliage around and embossed the one in gold. This is an "any time" card to send to someone just because you want to. The card on the right in for a birthday.
Ah what fun and just think, Christmas Eve is only (gulp) 2 months away!
