2017-05-07; Alphabet O-swap


It’s May so another Alpha swap is being worked on. Today I’m working on a card that represents the letter O. I came up with 4 “O” words this time.

I die cut metal duct tape, added alcohol ink and embossed to get this shinny tree to add as an embellishment. I’m not quite sure it makes it as tree-ish looking though but the shine and texture is nice.

Here you can see the alpha brad & layers of the card. I popped up two of the layers to that the oval would be a drop down/in frame.

The pine branch was inked with 2 colors of ink and also popped up on tiny strips of 3-d mounting tape.

Here is a close look at the sentiment and stamped texture.

    I do hate to the bearer of bad news, but the background are hexagons, not octagons! Totally love this card, the tree is interesting, I did not identify it as a tree, but agree it adds awesome texture!

      Egad, you are right…and now that you said that the matching stamp set is called hexagon too, isn’t it? Maybe my partner won’t notice?
