Old School Cool

Today is the start of the new CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog and it's all about text!


This challenge was just what I needed to pull out a cool stamp set I have never used from Heidi Grace/Cloud 9 Design.   My card was inspired by this card I found on Etsy.

I created the shaped text in Photoshop Elements and printed it out.  I  then stamped my typewriter image in red pigment ink, added a bit of twine, rounded some corners and my CAS card is complete and didn't take long to make.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!
