Today's Any Hero card was inspired by OWH #218 and features one of my favorite combos -- natural jute/burlap on navy.
When I first saw the sketch, the CAS part of me was concerned. But, then I saw a burlap strip against a navy background, topped with one of those busier patterns I never quite know how to use. After that, it came together pretty quickly. Decision points were: 1) the brads to use -- wanting to use stars, but the stars I had didn't feel quite right, and 2) the color of ink -- deciding on black to go with the black that appears in the dp.
Still loving that Stampin' Up! magnetic platform and wondering what I ever did without it. An AHA moment: After cutting out the inner banner, I flipped the die over to trace the outline of the die on a different sheet of paper. I trimmed this outline to create the outer banner. Okay, so you all probably have all been doing that forever, but it was an AHA moment for me. :)
The April Words to Scrap By challenge goes live on April 1. Looking forward to seeing lots of BRILLIANT cards!
Hoping to get to work on some Father's Day cards. Yesterday, made my second one of the season as a tribute to Suzanne. So, I've really got to make hay on those.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin'!
