Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge





I'm entering my first Papertrey Ink blog hop challenge! I just love this wreath from the "Wreath for All Seasons" stamp set, and it inspired me to make a door card for my brother and his family, who just bought a new house. This card fits in a regular business sized envelope.

The challenge is to use a tip you learned from another crafter. I used a technique I picked up from Nichole Heady's blog for my wreath. I stamped it once in Terracotta ink, and then rotated the stamp 45 degrees and stamped again, giving it a faded look for the second stamping.



Recipe:
(all materials Papertrey Ink)

9 1/4" x 8" Kraft cardstock, scored at 4"
9" x 3 3/4" Terracotta Tile cardstock
8 3/4" x 3 1/2" Fine Linen cardstock, scored with my Scor-Pal to look like a door

"Wreath for All Seasons" stamp set
Dark Chocolate, Terracotta and Chai Ink
Rustic Jute Button Twine
Vintage Button
