After die-cutting the pieces of the bra, I sponged the edges using Ranger’s Walnut Stain Distress Ink (totally inspired by Jodi).
Once I had sponged, I used a paper-piercer to create an eyelet-like appearance along the scalloped edges.
Of course I needed a coordinating card. ;)
Card base is Natural.
The sentiment, from Have Hope stamp set, was stamped in the same ink I used for sponging.
On the inside I used scraps of the patterned paper…already cut and too nice to toss.
The journal is my favorite piece of the set. (I pray I will never need it and that I’ll never have anyone to send it to.)
The base journal started out as a $1 bright green Christmas notebook from Michaels. As a matter of fact, there was a big cartoon reindeer on the front. I removed the front and back covers, painted with Martha Stewart Root Beer Float then Putty acrylic craft paints then sponged the edges using the distress ink.
I added a couple more Layered Roses, added some trim and lots of stitching.
Here’s a close-up of the dimension. I ♥ this book. :)
