Mr. & Mrs. – CR84FN #42

I purchased the Thank You #5 set of Sizzix embossing folders back in May, and I am just now getting around to using any of them.  I bought the set specifically for this one folder, and I’ve had it on my mind ever since the package arrived at my doorstep, but it just never happened.  As is the case for a great deal of my crafting supplies, sadly.  I am an overzealous shopper with not enough time to love each and every one of my supplies.  I have pledged to make more of an effort to use my older and unused supplies in the future, though.

I finally went searching for that folder this week and used it for a wedding card:

I wouldn’t call this card creative, really.  I just sent the cardstock in the embossing folder through the machine, stamped a sentiment, added a few rhinestones, tied a ribbon with a charm, and adhered it onto a couple of mat layers.  Sending it through the Cuttlebug was about the most effort I expended on this one!

Truth is, the pain is kicking my butt this week, and I have been feeling quite unmotivated to do anything more than the necessities.  So I’m taking the easy way out on my cards, as well.

I did utilize the CR84FN #42 colors for this card (easy on the colors and heavy on the white!):
Simple, once again.  Perfect for a week like this.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
