notecards

If I added up all the time I spend scrounging for notecards to use when writing letters, I could probably walk myself over to the recipients house and deliver the message in person. (Although that would be nice, snail mail can't be beat.) To fix this problem I whipped up a few cards today using random items and some gold embossing powder. (I admit, I fantasize about all the things I could cover in gold embossing.) Now I have a cheery bunch of cards right at my fingertips to use whenever the urge to write hits. Hooray!

  7. dang, what an awesome idea! i do this with my art journal and paint, but never thought to try it with embossing powder! Thanks for the great idea. Have you tried stuff from the hardware store? It's my current favorite for creating texture/backgrounds with paint (and ink). I just made a stamp from washers and a flip flop the other day that came out amazing. Thanks again for a good idea!
