Wplus9 Oct. Release Sneak Peek: Day 1

Sunday, October 3, 2010

I'm baaack with another, Wplus9 Design release!  Yippeee!  Obviously, we're a little late, this month, due to circumstances beyond our control, but we're here; and I'm sooo, stinkin' excited to show you the fabulous sets that Dawn has cooked up, for us, this month.  Yes!  I said "sets"!  There are three!  We're focusing on Damask Frames today. 
I started this monogrammed card by stamping one of the damask images, over and over again, in Basic Black ink, on the Basic Gray, cardstock, card face.
I, then, used my computer to generate and print the last name on Barely Banana cardstock; stamped the oval, damask frame, in Basic Black ink, around it; trimmed it, across the top and bottom, with punched strips of Basic Black cardstock; and ran white-threaded, straight stitches across the length of its bottom and top edges.
Finally, I cut tiny, little slits on either side of the frame and thread a sheer, white, satin-trimmed ribbon through them, before adhering it, horizontally, to the center of the stamped, card face.
This card was duplicated four times over...
and packaged, with envelopes, in a clear, cellophane bag, complete with matching ribbon.
It'll be the perfect, Christmas gift, inspired by Embellish's Background Stamping Color Challenge, for another one of my neighbor's.  (See last month's day four post for another, sweet, little, Christmas, card set; that I made, using Ever After, for a different neighbor.)
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fantastic, work week!  And be sure to run check out these other design team members' sneak peeks, too!
