LOL! Although I agree wholeheartedly with Iris Murdoch’s philosophy, it was actually a fun find in one of my K&Co paper books! I thought it would make a great card for giving with a homemade baked treat.
I started out by lightly inking up a fleur-de-lis embossing folder with Desert Sand ink and then running it through the Cuttlebug with a piece of kraft card stock. The ink transferred to the debossed sections of the card stock resulting in a mottled look. I then used Moonlight White Archival Ink to highlight the raised edges.
The focal image is the quote along with a few floral embellishments and the butterfly. The white background of the focal image was stamped and distressed with Antique Linen distress ink, Chocolate, Lagoon and Moonlight White inks. I used Garnet card stock as a matte.
Now I have to go and make something yummy to go along with the card! I think this calls for a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies and a visit with a good friend. Until next time, happy crafting!
