To Grandmother's House

I got my printer back and the problem was a bad cartridge which they replaced for free as I had just purchased a new one a couple weeks ago and replaced it the day I could not get it to work. So at least that was not an expensive repair. So today I printed out a digital design from Jan's Digitals so that I could enter at least one card in the November Jan's Digitals Challenge. I chose to use images from the Over The River set. I also made an envelope to match it too! I printed the image on sticker paper, fussy cut it and placed it on the corner of the envelope.



I used some of the first dies I had ever purchased. They were the Polka Dot Frame from Spellbinder and also the Spellbinder A2 Curved Matting Basics A set. I only used part of the sentiment from the digital set as I was cramped for room. But by cutting around it and putting a thin border of green cardstock I got it to fit in the frame. The last finishing touch was to add some dark green rhinestones to each rounded corner.

Well, that might be all I do today or tomorrow as I have company coming Saturday. So I have to put all my toys away. Thanks for visiting and I love the comments. Stay healthy too!

God bless, Verna

I've never seen that Spellbinder's polka dot frame and it is so cute. That is a fun image of the trip to Grandmother's house. I'll be humming that song all day! Your stenciled bouquet from Wednesday is so pretty and the gold washi looks elegant.

Sweet, sweet card, I love the image! Great use of the die to frame the pretty image, and the matching envelope too -- so happy your printer was easily remedied and helped make such a wonderful card

I love the polka dot border on this image. I usually stamp a quick image on my envelope, but I like the idea of sticker paper. Super cute card!
