~ Heaven and Earth ~
Good morning! What a lovely day in the neighborhood! I think I will change into a well worn cardigan and soft canvas sneaks before we begin... Won't you be my neighbor??? ;-)
Grab a cup of your favorite coffee and settle in for a bit.
I have a wonderful card to share using some of the new Chalkboard Paper Collection from Our Daily Bread Designs.
Chalkboard continues to be all the rage! I see it in craft and hobby stores every time I stop in. The beauty of these papers... they are just beautiful! They already look aged and so COOL!
I started with a simple black card stock base (5.5 by 4.25) and added a white CS mat. I used the lattice chalkboard print for my main layer and added some of the swiss dot (also double matted) to one side. I stamped my sentiment (from Scripture Collection 12) with red ink on white card stock before using the new Vintage Pattern Die. Before removing the die, I lightly inked the edges with a black distress ink. Since the focal layer looks like lattice, I decided to incorporate a spray of flowers. I used ODBD's Fancy Foliage Die to create my vines and added a few sizes of mulberry roses randomly with glue. My finishing touches? Four flat backed pearls at each corner. A very simple and elegant project... perfect for a lovely friend, your mom or grandmother... a friend from church who lends support... any lovely lady who needs a bit of encouragement!
Here are the supplies I used today.
