Brace Yourself

This will stay on top until May 1st- check out my sweet deal!

Happy Friday everyone! Today I have a card that uses the Braces image from squigglefly. This card took me a long time to finish and I think you'll see why

(click to enlarge)

Let me tell you, threading that wire through those holes was a chore! I was originally going to go through two holes and have it wired like braces, but it was just too bulky and I knew it wouldn't mail well like that. So I settled by just threading the wire.

I followed a sketch from Our Creative Corner. I think it's a cool looking sketch and I will probably use it again soon.
The words were printed out in a font called Barbarello. Isn't it a fun one? I just did a search for wired fonts and found that one.
You can download the font here if you like it.

Spring has left us here and I'm afraid summer has arrived. It was nearly 90 degrees yesterday and we had to turn on our air conditioning. I will have to start getting up earlier in the mornings to walk Riley before the heat sets in. Summer is not my favorite time, and unfortunately where I live we have more than five months of it!
Well, enough complaining from me. I hope you all have perfect weather and a wonderful Friday. Thanks for looking!

What patience! I think I would just have to bring out the stapler! Am I lazy or what???

This is adorable! I love the sentiment! Isn't his expression priceless? AWESOME card!

I'm about to try your idea of running flower blossoms through the CB. My azaleas are in full bloom and are they gorgeous! They are a salmon color which I think will pair up beautifully with some new DP I bought. I'll let you know! ;)

Cute card! I love how used the wire on your card!

Christina said...

The wire looks super tedious but great job on your card! I would have just cheated and put staples all over instead. :)

Love the card-very clever.
I'll trade you weather- we get 5 months of winter!
Our daffodils are just starting, and it's high 50's only today.
Why is it that "the grass is always greener"?
