I am pleased with how the Graphic45 cards for today turned out. I just think the little doily made the card look even more vintage looking.
I got the doilies years ago at a bargain store. They were marked 10 cents a piece but they were on sale for like 90% off because the store was moving, so I got them for a steal! When I was thinking about how to embellish these cards I thought "OMG! THE LITTLE DOILIES" and I ran off to the guest room to get them out of the drawer they were in. I only used one and cut it in half to use on the two cards.
I think I do like being able to use the same papers on the cards so far and giving them a different look by how the green strip is on there and with the different embellishments.
Here you can see a close up of the doily. I used my ATG tape to run across where I cut it in half to keep it from fraying and then just attached it to the back of the image. I also added a few spots of ATG tape to keep it held down on the card and then used powder to get rid of the sticky where it was showing through the doily. I did this to keep any dirt or stray crap *okie thinks she should probably find a different word than crap to use....but decides not to get out the thesauruses and look and sticks with crap* from sticking to the card.
Aw yes, and you can see the stitching. I received a few messages on here and on facebook from people telling me thank you for letting them know about the Janome Sew-Mini being on sale....well it was my pleasure! *okie knows that everyone knows how much she loves hers* And those of you that missed out and are wanting one, well never fear, it does seem to go on sale ever so often and as soon as I know about it again I will post to let you know!
As most of you know I am in love with brads, Brad Pitt comes to mind, but in this case I am talking about those every so versatile little metal prong type brads! It always amazes me how just a few of these little metal delights can really make something look so much better! Sometimes it's just the tiniest details in things that make you go "OH!! THAT IS NICE!" *okie thinks she would say that for realz if Brad Pitt was giving her a massage*
Well that is all for today! Come back tomorrow for another set of Graphic45 cards!
