I really enjoyed making this card because it feels like such a looooooooong time since I ever made a card without a purpose! The weekend challenge on our forum this week was to create something using embossing and eyelets and I came up with this card. Mainly because I had a huge de-junk in my craft room last weekend and I found this stamp again which I made last year using the imagepac kit, and I'd forgotten how much I love it. However, these stamps don't work too well with many inks - I like them best with versafine, but I couldn't find my black pad (oops! too much de-junking, methinks!! LOL!!) so I used a different ink but I had such trouble getting a crisp image. Eventually I gave up and used this one which was the best of a bad bunch!! LOL!! The red paper is Basic Grey from one of their stacks (can't remember which!) the embossing is actually a whimsical frame from Autumn Leaves stamps set (which I am adoring so much at the moment!!).
This has got me fired up now and I want to make more 'no purpose' cards, just like I did in the olden days, then I have a stash ready for those unplanned moments!!!
Thanks for looking in!
