PTI Make it Monday #97

This week, PTI's Make it Monday was a review of all the MIM videos that have been posted this year.  We were invited to post a project that highlighted one of the demonstrated techniques.  I have chosen to post a card that I made right after watching the original posting of MIM #74, "Stamping on Texture."  I actually made this card planning to participate in that week's challenge, however I never got around to posting it.  Believe it or not, I actually gave this card to my husband tonight for his birthday.  So, here's my creation:

It is very subtle, but I actually used the wood plank stamp from the Background Basics: Farm & Barn set to stamp on the background that I had embossed using an embossing folder from Quick Kutz.  You can see the technique demonstrated a bit better in this view:

By the way, the inside of the card reads, "Your age!  Happy Birthday!"

Thank you so much for visiting!

  1. I really love the colors and layout of this card. The background came out so natural looking, I can't wait to try that technique!

  2. You had better luck with the technique than I did. Bet your hubby loved this!
