Bloggers Challenge 41 – Long Note

This week’s challenge was to make a long note-so I started by sifting through my scraps, and decided to break out of my mold and make a bright, springy card with NO distressing!  I cut the base of the card 6 5/8" X 6 1/2", and scored and folded the 6 1/2" side, so the base measured 6 5/8" x 3 1/4". 


I used a scrap of printed paper from my new K & Company pad, "Berry Sweet," and used three stamps from Artistic Outpost’s "Distant Generations" stamp set (currently 20% off).


  • Distant Generations (Artistic Outpost)


  • Gable Green
  • Pink Passion
  • Naturals White
  • Berry Sweet


  • White Craft
  • Pink Passion Classic


  • Pearl EP (Stampendous)
  • Pink Rhinestones (Me and My Big Ideas-Icons)
  • Pink and Green stitched Ribbon (May Arts from the Pink Hedgehog)

The buttons were stamped with White Craft ink and then heat embossed with Pearl EP from Stampendous and cut out.  They were mounted on the card front with dimensional foam tape.  The sentiments were stamped with Pink Passion Classic ink-the "Generations" stamp was stamped directly on the cardfront so that it slightly overlapped the other elements to give it a "collage" feel.

It was hard to resist aging or grunging this up-but other than the one torn edge, I stuck to my plan…THANKS for looking!
