  1. I started by printing the free digital image from McMahon Five Designs.
  2. Then I colored the image with copic markers and cut it out.
  3. I felt like this image just did not belong on the regular printed cancer paper I had so I decided to make a background using distress inks.  I randomly added the ink with an ink applicator, then did some direct to paper with the ink pads to add lines and texture.
  4.  Then I scored the card and  turned it into a gate card.
  5. Then I stamped inside the card using the saying from DRS Stamps.
  6. Then I embossed the flaps with the gears embossing folder by putting the flaps inside of the folder.
  7. I taped the image onto the card.

I did not want this card to be pretty and pink because cancer is not pretty. It is a fight for the person's life - sometimes you win and sometimes cancer wins.   Not pretty, not pink.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I LOVE how you made your background paper---it's GREAT!

  2. I love the soft mutted background. Such lovely soft colors to set off your main image.
