I'm back! I wanted to write to my cousin and decided to whip up a fun card to write out and send. :) Note that in my continuing efforts to keep my CAS cards CAS, I refrained from distressing the outer edges of this card and I have not added any embellishments. Heehee! :)
Stamps: SU Office Ephemera
Paper: Michaels's white base, ? scraps
Stamped typewriter on dark cream c.s. and emb in Stampendous black. Cut out. Used another stamp from the set to create a bg. Inked w/Ranger DI barn red (stamping and edges.) Adhered typewriter to bg panel, then to black c.s. panel. Adhered completed panel to card base. Stamped MFT sentiment w/black Memories ink. (Tried to emb but could not get that MFT stamp to work w/Ranger Medium. Anybody else have that happen w/a MFT clear stamp?) Had to take panel off and adhere to new card, on which I just stamped (not emb) the sentiment. I think Millie will like it! :)
THANK YOU for taking time to look at my card!

Very nice...I like the way that you did your BG, it really highlights the image well. I use Versamark and detail EP...don't know if either of those things would make a difference, but I usually get good results. I also try to stamp on a surface with a little "give." Best of luck, but this does look wonderful just the way that it is :)
