Crazy 4 Challenges this week is challenging us to use our “favorite” stamp set. I had to think long and hard as to which stamp set that would be – it’s like choosing who your favorite child is. But after a long deliberation….I decided my all-time favorite stamp set is Oh Crop from Here She Goes Stamps. Maybe it’s because I grew up on a farm and a lot of my relatives still live on a farm or have farming in the backgrounds but this is my go-to stamp set when making a card for them. This card is going to my brother whose birthday is on Halloween. Having one’s birthday on Halloween is just as bad as having a birthday on Christmas Day – no one want to come to your party so you have to celebrate it another day – needless to say, I didn’t want my card to have anything to do with a Halloween theme.
I used a variety of cardstock pieces leftover from other projects. I’ve been hesitant to try washi tape but I had a roll just setting out and thought this would be a great time to try it – wow, what a quick little burst of color it added! Other than that, no other embellishments were added. I embossed the background to the farm to give a bit of texture but that was about it – quick and easy!
Thanks for the visit! Dee
