I must give a nod to my daughter, the photographer, for capturing the subtle designs in both the foreground and background papers.  She calls it S.O.O.C., something photographers love.  Straight Out Of Camera – with no editing! 

Golden Anniversary
Golden Anniversary Card

This card was designed for entry into this week’ CAS Challenge at Outlawz.  The Challenge Recipe was:  Patterned Paper, Twine/Linen Twine, and A Happy Sentiment.  The Patterned Paper and Happy Sentiment were easy.  I had the background pattern paper on my drafting table for a couple of weeks trying to figure out how I could use it in a design.  The leaves were pretty and the gold with hints of wine were aesthetically pleasing.  The twine was problematic because the paper is so rich, I couldn’t figure out how to work the twine in.  I played with a few ideas and finally settled on using a large pearl brad as closer and the twine as the clasp.

About Chana Malkah

I am a "bubbie" (translation: grandmother), clinical supervisor(pediatrics) and an avid cardmaker. I enjoy making stationery sets and giving them to family and friends. This blog is for those who are just starting to explore cardmaking and other papercrafting. I have been away from cardmaking for about five years and was astounded by all the exciting changes in the craft. When I started stamping back in 1998, I only worked with wood mounted rubber stamps, metal stencils, markers and embossing powders and ink. Now there is a whole world out there and I hope we can explore together. In just eleven short months, I have gone from being afraid of posting my being invited to join two design teams and waiting to hear from two more! Pursue your Passion!
