Perspective



I’m sorry it’s been so long since I‘ve been on here, but hopefully I‘m back for a while. Today I want to share with you some cards I made using Tattered Angels’ Glimmer Mist Robin’s Egg, one of their screens and Tim Holtz’s “Good Thoughts.” After the Tattered Angels dried I stamped and heat embossed the “Good Thoughts” stamps. I like that these cards can be used for both male and female recipients. Sometimes guy cards are a little hard to come up with. I am posting this for “Made it Myself Mondays” at You Had Me At Craft. You should check her blog out, lots of inspiration. I hope you will come back to see me soon, I’m pretty sure there is going to be some blog candy given away soon. 8^)

Great card set. Thanks for stopping by my blog. If you would like to learn how to make a squash book here's a link that might help you out. http://blog.melissasamuels.net/2010/05/squash-book-tutorial.html
Just an FYI you can make any size squash book as long as you start with 3 equal size square base papers. Your end project will be half the size of your base paper example a 12x12 paper will make a 6" squash book a 8x8 paper will make a 4" squash book. I like using 12x12 to get the 6" book. This way I can get a full size photo in it.
Good luck.

Great to have you back blogging - love the cards, you've done a great job - sometimes a sentiment and a bit of glimmer is all you need to make sensational cards.
