You're My Style Note Card

Hi everyone! It's been another fast and furious weekend amidst laundry, a few other things around the house, and a little time in the scrap room. These weekends are going by way too fast! I did get a few cards made - a couple DT inspiration projects and a couple that I created strictly for play. This one actually happened by accident (hehehe)! I was looking through my stamps to select something for an autumn/fall theme and happened across this very cool Fashionista/Trendsetter image and sentiment. I love the houndstooth pattern on the shoes and just happened to have some houndstooth paper to match. I've been on a monochromatic kick over the last week or so - black and white with a splash of one other color - so here we go again! ;)

One of the challenges I'm playing in is a pre-holiday rush "de-stressing" theme (another term for distressing) so I grabbed the Tonic distressing tool and went to town! You should've seen the little bits of paper flying... EVERY edge of every layer (including the card base) is distressed! No ink, only tool. I actually went for the look of fabric to match the shoes and I think it does look like multiple layers of fabric! What do you think?!


Love, love, love these shoes which are stamped on gorgeous white linen cardstock. Of course, this is coming from yours truly who has a major kind of shoe fetish! ;)


I flipped up the lower right-hand corner to reveal the sentiment. I really like the way this turned out!


I'd love to enter this note card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • GKD Pure Luxury white cardstock; Marco's white linen cardstock; DCWV hot pink textured cardstock; Paper and More black cardstock
  • The Paper Cut houndstooth paper
  • GKD Springtime Silhouettes stamp set (image and sentiment)
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • SweetStamps White dye ink
  • Tonic distressing tool
  • Black flat-back pearls

Hope you like my Fashionista themed card with the layers of faux fabric! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!
Hugs,
Leslie
