Sorry - I Wish I Could Backspace

Hi everyone!

I have a "just for fun" card for you today.  I whipped out the Just My Type Die-namics and stamp set and went for a soft, shabby card using a pale purple/cream/kraft color combo.  I am in love with this typewriter set.  It's SO fun to stamp with. :) 

I added a tiny Tim Holtz paperclip to my typewriter paper die-cut.  I like to score the die-cut paper and then mold it with my fingers so it looks like it has curled through the typewriter.

Check out my ON PURPOSE loose threads.  I am all for pristine sewing, but with this card, I threw caution to the wind and let em' loose.  I used the small stick that I use my Embellie Gellie with to roll the edge of my patterned paper. I found this gorgeous Prima flower in my stash.  Check out the newsprint leaves.  I like the look.

I decided to go for 2 big brads to balance out the card and add some "bulk".  You dont' always have to follow the rule of three.  ;)

Thanks for popping by.  See you soon!


  1. Gorgeously delicious card Jody I love every detail! I have to say I'm so proud of you for leaving the tattered thread it is a perfect touch!
