While this card may SEEM a bit on the harsh side, Princess Pamela "got it", enjoyed it and appreciated it and what card-maker could ask for more? She's one of my special card-buying customers - one that likes the "edgier" cards.....so of course I had to make an edgey card for her, right??
Not a whole lot of stamping going on.....mostly the M.S. punches do the trick. I used the icicle border punch to make the tall grass and I slipped the single tombstone in between the grass layers/rows. I put a bit of foam tape on the upper portion of the tombstone and then the front row of grass is about 90% popped out. I added just a smidgeon of the glaze pen on the "r.i.p." to highlight the letters (it's very subtle).
I'm still having fun with those M.S. punches, and now Heidi thinks they're kind of cool too - I know, I know.....I'm such the trend-setter!!!
