Angel's Landing gets edgy.

This week Judi, illustrator of Angel's Landing's ridiculously cute designs, asked us (the design team) to create something where we 'finished' our edges. I went back to the Polar Bear collection released last month and created a card, where I 'serged' my edges. I used my serger sewing machine and gave the edges a yellow and green thread wrap to match the cardstock.

This card is also a gift card or money holder, too. I put pockets on the inside that can be used to place gift cards, money, notes, etc. Senders choice!

The image was printed on white cardstock that was first painted with Gesso so that I could heat emboss the image when it came out of the printer. I colored it then with Copics, though Copics don't act like Copics when you use this method.

Now be sure to stop over at the Angel's Landing blog for links and pics of the other Design Team member's fabulous, edgy creations!
