Monday, June 7, 2010

Good Monday evening – it is oldie moldie Monday – or OMM – the day to dig into your supplies – dig deep – and find some paper that was once loved but forgotten. I am sure you will be able to create a beautiful card from it – actually how many cards can you make from it. Sometimes if you leave it out for the week – it is interesting to see how many cards you can actually create. My friend Ivanka and I even have a Flicker site where you can post your OMM creations.

Today’s card is based on the sketch from the Operation Write Home card blog Stars and Stripes. Every Sunday they have a new sketch to get your creative juices flowing – they even tell what size to cut your paper.

I had a collection of 8 x 8 pieces of this particular group of paper – I know I have made a couple cards from it already – On the second card you will notice that I trimmed off the scalloped edge and used the pieces as trim. Can’t waste anything that pretty.

Hopefully everyone had a chance to create something beautiful. I am going to try and finish the inside of a couple cards and get them out of the house this week with the gifts that go with them.

I so love the Americana Folk Art look of these cards! And, of course, the weathered red, white, and blue. Wonderful cards as usual Barb!
