Even though it's only Friday Eve, I've already got a bad bad case of Friday Fever. I'm already having trouble sitting still and it's not even Friday and I'm not even at work.
I had big dreams of doing a layout tonight. But like many big dreams, it died a horrible death.
So I made a card!
This is what I started with- those new stamps from Graphic 45's Olde Curiosity Shoppe line. Aren't these little bottles kick ass? I bought them while at the BasicGrey class on Tuesday night, remember? I used those little letter stamps from the dollar bin at Michaels, too-
See? I used the letter stamps to turn it into a little liquor bottle! The set comes with various small stamps you can use to label the bottles, but none of them were as cool as the bottles! I was excited when I found my sets of letter stamps. I don't drink gin, I drink vodka. But 'gin' is a shorter word and I'm lazy.
I kept it very monochrome. I embossed the piece on the back with a folder from the Sizzix 'Figgy Pudding' set, and very lightly edged it with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The card under the bottle, I edged using the Walnut Stain Distress Marker- these work GREAT to quickly put a faint line on the edge of a piece of card! Just drag it across and BANG- classy card. I also used foam dots under the bottle for some dimension amongst all the kraft, but it didn't translate well in the photo.
I thought this would make a nice invitation for a night of drinks. Because I'm sure all of you are like me, and when you want to invite someone out to drinks, you send them a nice card with a bottle on the front.
I hope you aren't getting bored of kraft, cuz I'm not- I just might start a new blog called "Kory's Kraft-y Kingdom." No, maybe it should be a video blog, and I narrate the entire thing in monotone Rick Steves PBS travel show style. Have you ever watched this guy? I seem to catch his show often, while waiting for Lawrence Welk to come on- oh, you didn't know that I like Lawrence Welk? I don't really- only when they do production numbers. I appreciate the insanity of it.
Well, as Holly's Mom says, "I'm gonna make like a baby and head out." See ya, people.
