Moments...just like this
Last month I made a card for my daughter in law for Mother's Day, so I started out wanting to do the same for my son...and then it evolved into a tag that he can display at work. I wanted something masculine and I remembered how much I enjoyed the first Technique Remix in 2016 by Tim Holtz (here). So, I found my Stars embossing folder, used on Spellbinders Precious Metals, and dabbed on some black Distress Paint, rubbed in and wiped down. I trimmed the metal piece to fit the Jumbo Manila Tag, and adhered it to the top portion of the tag. I then stamped the quote from the retired set from Ali Edwards, It's OK in white craft ink onto black cardstock. I used Snow Cap acrylic paint to fill in the image on the Word Bands and Typed Tokens.
For the photo, I changed the image to Black and White, printed it in wallet size onto an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of photo paper, and used Spellbinders Large Deckled Rectangles to imitate the edge of an old photo. (Looks like they caught the grandkids on Family Movie Night!)
I like that I was able to fit this into my two favorite challenge blogs:
Frilly and Funkie: Letter Perfect
Simon Says: Anything But a Card
