Clean & Simple 3 Card Class – Day 2 Faux Letterpress

I’m so excited about my new card.  I had so much fun creating this card, I can’t stop smiling.

Faux Letterpress is another technique that I learned in my online card class.  Shari Carroll taught us how to create this fabulous look of  letterpress without the texture.  I used nothing but ink and it gave this faux letterpress technique a perfectly smooth one layer card.  I love it!!

Old and New: Oh Happy Day Box

Today’s gift boxes are for two members of my reading club at work.  They answered a couple of questions correctly and was the first to respond so they get these beautiful boxes.  Today’s gift box was inspired by Angie Juda’s box.  My version of the box was made with some retired DSP, ribbon and inks.  The greeting was made with Stampin’ Up’s new Starburts Sayings and Starburst Framelits Dies.
