Word Art Wednesday #10 Challenge Card

I’m taking part in a new card challenge today, along with my sister in law Judy.  It’s always refreshing to try new things and I’m even hoping YOU might join in the fun at Word Art Wednesday.  I’ve been invited be a Guest Designer for the entire month of February so I’m counting on all my family and friends to join in and spread the word!

Today’s challenge for WAW # 10 is to use the following word art scripture:

 

I truly enjoyed today’s challenge because I have the most fabulous hand made paper I’ve been trying to find excuses to use!

Supplies:

Paper (embossed) – Hand made paper from India – (posting more on this after the list)

DP – Craft n Craftin Best Creation (oooops, cleaned up the craft area too quick and the actual “name” of this paper is somewhere and I’m NOT dumpster diving! )

Word Art – courtesy Word Art Wednesday

Rosettes – Recollections, purchased at Michaels

As you can see this card is a “giving” card – not mail-able because of these gorgeous little rosettes.   My sweet sister snipped a few off each of her packs and gifted them to me last summer and I sort of forgot about them until now. 

I cut the backing for the sentiment using my Silhouette SD and I inked the edges too with Studio G ink in a dark brown. 

I paired up a sheer brown ribbon along with a length of cream lace which was a wonderful find at the local thrift store.

A note about the beautiful hand made embossed paper used here – I picked it up along with several other yummy ones from a store I simply have to crow about.  I’m talking about Paper Nation located in Abbotsford BC.  I found it quite by chance last time my Mr and I visited the coast and being it was the day before Christmas and I had money fun money jingling a hole in my pocket from my Mr… I spent over an hour pouring over all the lovelies and dropped more $$ there than I’ve done for quite some time!  I’m not saying' the products are expensive, in fact there were so many great sales on and prices being reasonable that I did not hold back. 

Bryan, the owner, was so accommodating, even offering up fresh java to sustain my power-shopping mode! I had already spent almost all my moolah when I espied an entire rack of these decorative hand made paper right beside the till.  I had to squeeze out just a bit more cash because I HAD to have six 1/2 sheets to take home with me. These papers come from India and Thailand and are “tree free”  They are zero-carbon footprint papers made of textile scraps from the fabric industry.  I’ll be heading back for more my next trip there! 

Why don’t you check out Paper Nation for yourself – I’ll be posting a permanent link on my side bar!

And I always like to have a little something to give away and so I whipped up a pretty swirly heart for YOU.  I’ve included two versions – one with a hole at the top so it could be used as a charm (I tested the cut as you can see!)  It’s available in png, svg and .studio for all your purposes.  I’ll place an extra copy under the “pages” tabs above this post so you can always come back and download a copy for FREE!  Comment love highly appreciated!
