Here's what I came up with:
Cashmere, Slate, Black and White cardstock work together to create this simple card. The card base, folded, measures just 4" wide (instead of the standard 4 1/4"). Because I set the larger "gear" slightly off the card, I made the card a little slimmer so that it would still fit in a standard envelope. :-)
To give the Slate-colored gear extra pop, I inked the edges with a sponge dauber and swiped across the surface with an inked paint brush.
The wrapped "metal" string was easy to do with a paper piercing kit. I just poked three holes in the fold, threaded the string, tied a knot and the card was done!
Thanks for stopping by!
