This is what it looks like opened. I printed the sentiment (which was provided by Calgramma on SplitCoast Stampers) on Very Vanilla Cardstock, then distressed and sponged the edges and stamped the stars.
The flap tucks behind the scallop circle to keep the card closed.
What would I do without all those talented stamper's out there who give me so many ideas?
I used Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel and Outlaw Designer Series Paper. Ink is Chocolate Chip. Once again, I turned to the Wanted stamp set. The lassoes (is that spelled right?) are made with packaging twine and attached with Crystal Effects. I think it is just adorable.
Then we needed to make the gift. I had a plain picture frame that I needed to use up, so we went with that.
I used a retired Simply Scrappin' Kit, and again put the entwined lassoes on it. We attached more packaging twind around the outside edge because it seemed like the logical thing to do.
After we had it just right, we used Chocolate Chip ink on a sponge to "dirty it up" a little bit. It looked too new to be a Western frame.
My mom was thrilled with how they turned out. I hope her instructor likes them.
