Melissa Phillips posted an interesting Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink this week. She challenged us to shop in the greeting card aisle and choose a card there for inspiration for a home made card. I've been too busy to actually go shopping for a card, so I decided to browse some cards online for inspiraiton.
I knew that I wanted to make some sets of cards to sell at my church, in an attempt to raise funds for my upcoming mission trip to the DR Congo, and I thought that using my Nativity Silhouettes Additions set would be a great choice for a card set.
So here is the card I chose online (it's a Hallmark card):
I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (rustic cream) and stamps (nativity silhouettes additions). To create the "sand", I cut some a curved edge from a thinner piece of cardstock and used my Tim Holtz blending tool and distress ink to colour it in, using the cardstock as a mask.
Thanks for looking!
