You're My Type of Friend

Yesterday, I was very lucky to get a treat from Erin (go over and check out her awesome blog!).  I loved the letterpress cards she had been making so she sent me some to try.  When I saw the CASE Study inspiration card below, I had an idea pop into my head very quickly.  And...it actually translated into what I wanted it to be.  Don't you love when that happens?  To make this, I inked the edges of the middle panel slightly.  I cut an oval out of a post it to mask the table for the typewriter, inked up the typewrite and sentiment.  Then I punched a circle out of the letterpress Erin sent and attached it to each side with a touch of stitching...and that was it.  A CAS card that I need to put into the mail to my college roommate, Michelle.
And that's all for today...happy Friday to you all!

Ooh, love this, Lynn! The bit of letterpress and stitching add just the right bit of texture. Love the punny sentiment and muted tones, too. Thanks for joining us again at CASE Study!

that panel is amazing!! Love the inking on it and the typewriter image and font :) I know that feeling you got when things translate from the brain to paper :) It's all about the process :) True stamping bliss :) I'm having my coffee in my SB Ohio mug I picked up on the way to SAF that morning :) I use it often and always think of you and your family :) Have a great day :)
