Just Because...

It seems that Graphic45 had one of my cards up on their blog yesterday. It totally slipped my mind that I was "up" and I forgot to post, so here it is for you!

I originally created this for a magazine call, but they did not want to publish it, so I sent it on to Graphic45. I guess this is a reject! {grin} I used Curtain Call papers. For some reason I just cannot add color when I use this paper. I need to challenge myself!

For the front of the card, I attached one of the Graphic45 Envelope Tag Staples, then I attached an image form the Curtain Call paper to the envelope.

I used some small brads to attach a bit of Idea-olgy film strip ribbon to the bottom of the image. I think I am now hoarding 3 packages of the film strip ribbon! Love that stuff!

I stamped the greeting onto kraft paper and hand cut a banner. I'm not so good at cutting stuff by hand, but it seemed to work ok. I tucked a few of the tickets, cut from Graphic45 paper, into the envie. Tied on some ribbon. Done!

To turn this card into a gift card holder, I used some glue dots to attach a movie gift card to the inside of the card, then stamped a message below.

I hope this inspires you to make a card...just because!
