So Thankful for You card: Quick Quotes with Want 2 Scrap

Good morning Quick Quotes readers, this is Alicia sharing today.  I am so Thankful for you and always appreciate your stopping by to see the design teams' inspirations.  This month we are teaming up with Want 2 Scrap and I have used their Gunmetal pearls-250 count to create a border along the side of my card.  I also played with this month's Quick Quotes' challenge: Tear it Up!  I used a shaped tearing tool to create a couple of layers that I inked up with Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalking Ink for a super sweet but distressed look.

Here's a hint to create an evenly spaced border:
  • I tied the twine first so I would know the amount of space with which to work
  • I lined up the larger pearls with the grid all the way down the left side
  • I went back and placed the smaller pearls in between for perfect spacing

I love how I can use three different Quick Quotes paper collections to create a card that matches so perfectly.  It shows the versatility of the collections and the creative thoughts of the designers to be able to blend them together so well.

Quick Quotes products:
49 Shades of Grey 102 paper (background for photos)

other products:
Ranger Distress embossing powder Dried Marigold
