Woo Hoo! I feel like I am really getting the hang of this only CTMH products restriction, for making class cards. It is easy with so many new and beautiful products in the new idea book. This card is a 4.25 x 4.25 square and was inspired by a card in the Autumn/Winter 2011 idea book, page 19 again. Along the lower edge you see one similar, I did quite a bit of creative tweaking to this one. I believe their card base was cut with the Cricut cartridge, since I still don't have it, yet....I just rounded the corners on a basic card base then used some Nestabilities to cut the shape out of the 3 different papers you see there. The papers are from the new Roxie set. The white card stock edges were sponged with Desert sand ink and a sponge dauber, just to soften them up a bit. It seemed a bit harsh next to the Roxie papers.
I have to show you my new stamp for the back of my handmade cards. Its a cat from a Halloween dollar priced set I got this weekend at our LSS Green Tangerine. I had a super fun girls night out with my mom and one of our stops was to this wonderful store. I scored this stamp and a few other goodies. The alphas I have had for a while, I know they are Studio G from Michaels. C.A.T. is my initials and my self imposed pseudonym. So I thought this was just perfect.
