Extreme Elements



Good Monday morning, Friends! Did you have a great weekend? It sure went fast! We are getting ready to head out the door to go to school. I don't think that I have a ton of stuff to do but I will probably find more stuff when I get there. I still can't believe that summer is over. Our middle school will start on Wednesday and then we (elementary) start next Monday.

Today's card was a card that I submitted for the LNS challenge last week. The challenge was to find a card to copy from the catalog and change at least two things. We were also supposed to make it "kid" friendly. So this is what I came up with. I chose the Halloween card from page 22 to copy. I kept the same colors and layout but changed the stamps and the embellishment. My card measures 3 x 6. I cut my Basic Black cardstock to 12 x 3 and then folded in half. I really liked how it turned out. And, more importantly, my son LOVED it! Thanks for stopping by and have a great start to a great week!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Extreme Elements, Extreme Dirt Bike; Paper- Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive; Ink- VersaMark, Crushed Curry, Basic Black; Accessories- star designer brads, black embossing powder, dimensionals
