Friends and Handmade Paper

Hello friends - thanks so much for dropping in.  It is Sunday evening here in the Nations Capital and we are now officially on Daylight Savings - I do love the extra hour of daylight in the evenings, although I know others don't! 

I have a very CAS (Clean and Simple) card to share with you today, using a stamped sentiment I was sent some time ago by my dear friend Maxine.  I have used handmade paper to compliment it - I love the texture the handmade paper adds. The two papers have been adhered down the centre using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

A 'Stamp' has been cut from Graphic 45 paper and glued to the top right of the card front.  I have added some random postmarks using a stamp from my stash and Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, making sure one of the is across the 'faux stamp'.

Along with strips from two different Washi Tapes - it is amazing how much difference they make - sometimes it is the 'little things!'  The card front has been cut/embossed using the second largest die from the Spellbinders 5 x 7 Matting Basics A Card Creator Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine and popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut orange card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
