Cased

I want to share a scraplifted card today. My card is inspired by this card by Laura- the Stampin' Soldier:



I am kind of a new visitor to Laura's blog and I love her ways with patterned paper. Here is my feeble attempt:


Again, a book backdrop. It is kind of not so bright at this hour so my picture is just so-so. But I liked my card!

Supplies:


PP: DCWV (the Blue polka dot one; my brother-in-law took the trouble to go to a new scrapbooking store in town and heard my instructions on phone and got me the Nana's Kids pack - all thanks to Tejal again for introducing me to the store!) and Pebbles Inc (yellow)
Stamps: PTI
Embellishments: Ribbon was an RAK from Shalini (love ya girl!), button from stash
Others: The checkered vintage'' paper is really vintage ;-) and given by my dad (ok, let me tell you he hoards stationery more than anyone I know! and he will never part with anything; I had to beg for a few sheets :D )

Ciao,
Smita

  5. Oooo! Your card is sooooo pretty! You know, it's funny that I wanted to use that same stamp from PTI, but I forgot about it once I got started. I couldn't pull the letters back up without tearing them, so I just left it like it was. Heehee! :-) Our minds must be in a creative sync!
