SAF 2015: Unconventional Materials Challenge

Are you have a blast today?  So many fun challenges today and I hope you have had time to play along.  The next challenge up is Unconventional Materials.  I like to think of myself as a DIY around the house type girl.  I love to build and I do love to spend time in Lowe's.  That being said, I just new I was going to find something super fun to create a card with.  Well, I did come up with anything to use ON my card but I did find a couple things to use in actually making the card.  First up, here is my card.... I like to call it "tiling in process".  Maybe a thank you card for a contractor or a fix it guy!

I used some white Wendy Vechi Embossing paste and then used a Sheet Flooring Adhesive spreader to make a little textured space at the top of the card.  For the bottom of the card, I inked up the Stripping Pad with some Enchanted Evening ink and pressed the card base right down on top.  It gave it a fun texted, speckley look.  I wanted to add a bold Thank you so I finished the card off with "thanks" at the bottom of the card.

  4. That is so clever!! I wish I had a little of the creativity that so many of you have! I never would have thought of this. Thanks for the inspiration. Maybe eventually the fire will catch on, and I'll think of some things myself!
