Just My Type

It started snowing last night before I went to sleep and I have a feeling I'll be waking this morning to a pretty snow-covered world. The forecast is for up to nearly 2 feet of snow, which is pretty unheard of in the DC area in December. I am so not looking forward to shoveling my sidewalk and digging out my car . . . It's a good thing I got some new stamping goodies in the mail on Friday to help keep me entertained. I guess they'll be my reward for all of the shoveling I'll be doing--LOL!

Here's my card for this week's Paper Craft Planet sketch challenge, hosted by Tammy. I hadn't used the typewriter image from Unity's November Kit of the Month yet and thought it would be a fun focal image for the sketch. I colored the typewriter with Copic markers. The paper in the typewriter is paper pieced with white paper to contrast with the cream panel I stamped the image on. And, the typewriter keys are coated with a gray Glaze pen for some dimension and shine.

I used some text patterned paper from Papertrey Ink for the panel on the bottom of the card. Isn't it a perfect match for the typewriter image? The coordinating sentiment is stamped in red ink, then layered on the card with foam tape.

If you're snowed in like me and have plenty of time to play along with this week's sketch, be sure to upload your card to the PCP gallery using the keyword sk121909 so it can be added to the album with the rest of this week's sketch creations.

  1. This turned out CUTE, Lori!!! Love the typewriter and the designer paper to go with it, and I love the way you made the paper in the typewriter white! Thanks for getting a card done for the sketch challenge!

  2. This is cute, Lori. I didn't notice until I looked again, but that is cool how you made the white sheet, so clever.
