Well, I first have to start by apologizing to my loyal readers for not posting regularly lately. I unfortunately got a pretty bad cold and didn't quite have the energy to create and post :(
BUT I am feeling much better and the whole family is now healthy so I am slowly getting back on track.
I will have some great cards to show you in the next couple of weeks. Some details on the upcoming Sale-a-bration and also great new classes that will be added to my schedule soon! So stay tuned!!!
Today I am taking a break from Christmas cards and showing you a Thank you card that I made for some co-hostesses, Marina and Allison.
Every week Split Coast Stampers posts a tutorial for a new technique. I love this brick wall idea so decided to try it out.
I ABSOLUTELY love this technique!
The flower image was inked with Craft Basic Black stamp on Basic Gray Designer series paper, then heat embossed with clear powder. I used a ruler and pencil to draw horizontal lines every 1/2". Then I drew vertical lines every 1" between the horizontal lines, offsetting them 1/2" every other line to create your bricks. Cut horizontal strips, placing them in order. Begin from the bottom and cut the first strip of paper along the vertical line. Adhere the bricks one by one, placing them on the cardstock with small spaces between to build a wall of bricks.Adhere, layer, add some ribbon and greeting and voila!
