While scanning the latest issue of Take Ten, I found the following card by Katherine Schmitt and sat right down to be inspired.
Of course, Katherine seriously rocks the kraft card stock, and my krafty exploits never quite look right to me, so I used white card stock, kept her holiday theme, but went blue and flaky, with a little bling thrown in for good measure!
I love Katherine's layout, and it's potentially useful for so many different things, not the least of which is using up some of the over-abundance of twine I've purchased. Still in a Christmas mood, I wanted to use some silver metallic twine in my stash, so I pulled out my silver and gold Brilliance inks and went to work.
You'll notice the lack of twine, right?
That lack isn't for lack of trying. The twine wouldn't tie right, no matter what I did to it.
I'm proud of myself for not swearing or throwing anything.
Finally, I gave up. I'm telling myself that the metallic ink--which is totally shiny and beautiful--carries the card without the twine. If I repeat it enough, I might start believing it.
But Katherine's original design is absolutely delightful and so inspiring! Many thanks to her and to Take Ten Autumn 2013.
