CFC72 - Toot Your Own Horn


This week's CASual Friday challenge is really interesting. Make a card inspired by your own blog header.


When I saw this, I 'raced' back to my blog and heaved a huge sigh of dismay. Man, if I had known something like this was coming along, I would have made my header a lot more, ahem, INTERESTING.

That's not to say I don't like my blog header - Minna did a great job incorporating the elements I wanted (the capital MASK and the little mask at the end), but it's not really going to generate a lot of inspiration for cards, now is it? lol!

As it turns out, I have the perfect stamp - this huge DeNami Merry Christmas is just the thing. I stamped it in versamark and embossed it with Silver Lightning embossing powder (you can't see that my blog header is sparkly, can you? lol!)

I love your card:) Yes I discovered my blog header was extremely boring....I had better spruce mine up before another one of these challenges comes along! Hugs x x

Ardyth, your card is a perfect compliment to your header! Both are simple and lovely! ; ) Bev

Your card totally matches your blog header. Mine would look the same exact way, except it would be blue. I need to get me a new blog header.

Nothing stumps you, Ardyth! Good job!! I feel the same way. I like the CAS style of my banner, but a balloon or butterfly would have come in handy about now!!

Perfectly clean & simple banner and card! What is so cool is that the DeNami font is almost exactly like your banner font! I would say that you rocked this challenge!

Michelle said...

Well done, Ardyth! Gorgeous card!

You think your header is challenging inspiration? Mine has to be the starkest, CAS-est, header in history, LOL! I'm still intimidated and wondering if I can do it. :-)

I love the stamp! And glitter. But then again, everyone loves glitter.

Well done, Ardyth! That De Nami stamp is a pretty good match for your header. My header is bog-standard, and pretty blank, just like my mind!
