Sympathetic Floor

Hello All!

This card was inspired by a Facebook post my husband saw. He told me that this would make a funny sentiment.. I fell in love with him all over again! So he is ACTUALLY interested and better yet, listening to me about my craft. I read the quote and instantly said 'Yes, this would make a GREAT card'.  So here it is.

This card was actually very easy. I used Stampin' Up Hard Wood background stamp on brown card stock then heat embossed and sanded it down for less of a shine. Then I used Stampin' Up Gorgeous Grunge set for stains maybe from a old house. Lastly, I lightly sponged the entire card with brown ink for more of the distressed look. The sentiment was typed and printed. Throw a little chevron banner mount it on white cardstock and VOILA!
