Friday Mashup #110

I have a few post for you today... Up first is this week's Friday Mashup Challenge. I'm the host this week and I created a fun challenge using Baker's Twine and a Monochromatic color scheme.

I needed a Masculine Birthday card so I thought a Brown color palette would be perfect! I had a lot of trouble with this card though. There has to be a secret to using the Core'dinations card stock with the embossing folders. If you've figured it out please let me know.. Mine keep ripping through the paper. I eventually just adjusted my Big Shot sandwich so there was no bottom plate and I just used some card stock as shims. But I wasted a lot trying to figure that out. 

I started with a Soft Suede card base and then I added a layer of Early Espresso Core' dinations that I ran through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain folder. Then I lightly sanded the grain. I added some Early Espresso Baker's Twine and a Naturals Designer Button. Before I adhered it to the Soft Suede Layer I punched a 1 3/4" circle in the lower corner. 

On the inside of the card I placed the Owl that I created from the Punch and several shades of Brown card stock onto a Soft Suede circle. 

I stamped the Happy Birthday from Teeny Tiny Wishes onto a piece of Whisper White punched with the Word window and then I added a second punched with Early Espresso off centered under it. Another Naturals Designer Button and some twine. 

Make sure you head over to the Friday Mashup blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week.. There is still time to join us, the Linky will close on Wednesday at 6pm EST. 

Thanks for Stopping By!
