Happy Monday! I hope everybody had a great weekend. Today I'm sharing my third card for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge. To see my first two cards, click here and here. Here is the challenge:
CFC41: Jest for the Pun of it.
Use a pun, or a sentiment in a silly way to create a joke, on your
Clean And Simple creation.
And now for the paper yummies:When I originally thought of making this card, I knew I wanted to use a spool wrapped with baker's twine, but that was about all I had planned. So I found a little paper spool that came in a package of embroidery floss, and wrapped it with green and white baker's twine. It turned out really cute! Then I happened to flip through a DCWV paper pad, and found this PERFECT patterned paper! I mean, the colors, the theme...everything about it just *worked*. I stamped my sentiment using these awesome alphabet stamps from American Crafts (just in case the "ketchup" card sentiment was a fluke), and they stamped just as perfectly this time. I am TOTALLY sold on these stamps - they match up so perfectly every time to create a sentiment that looks computer-generated! I stitched around two sides of the patterned paper, then added some random stitching on the pattern itself. I added some ribbon, the spool of twine, and a cute little button. Here is a closer look at the spool:
