A Message From Afar.....

Hi all! Do you need quick and easy cards that you can make in a jiffy or keep to be able to send in a jiffy? Well, I have one for you today that has a kind of masculine feel! I picked up some of Teresa Collin Designs new goodies recently in the Flourishes store and in a matter of minutes, whipped up this creation below!

I started by stamping the boat from A Guiding Light stamp set in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on a piece of neutral decorative paper. I also stamped the Antique Map on another piece of decorative paper from the Far and Away paper pack. After that, I did a little paper piercing and sponged around the edges of both papers with Tea Dye Distress Ink. I matted the boat up on some more decorative paper from the pack and matted up the map with Flourishes' new Classic Kraft paper. That also served as my card base!

And....  as you can see, attached to my main panel, I added a sentiment from the set using Rhubarb Stalk Memento Ink and I also added a portion of one of the Far and Away Borders. Have you seen these borders? OH MY! You get a pack of decorative border strips in coordinating colors and patterns. This is what they look like...

Yummy... don't you think????? ;-) And below you can see I literally only used the last inch of one of the borders. I loved that little pennant feel! Add a brad and... ta da!!!

And that, my friends, is it! A quick and easy "man card" that's ready to send! I have to say if you like this paper, Jan Marie, the Owner of Flourishes put together a post on this paper pack and all the fun things that go with it! So, click HERE to see what she picked and pulled to show off today! 

Thanks for stopping by this Wednesday. Hope life is good in your neck of the woods! I have been creating .... and so... I'll be back a little later this week to share some of that fun! See you back here soon!
