CAS-ual Fridays and Sunday's Bits & Pieces #6


Today i have a card for CAS-ual Friday along with this Sunday's Bits & Pieces. First i have to say that the photos aren't the greatest, but when i used my photo program to adjust the light, it washed out the file.

This weeks challenge at CAS-ual Friday is to make a card inspired by a movie. The movie is the X-Files. I'm a fan of the TV show and the movies. I knew i had a file die and it got me thinking.

I didn;t have any paper that matched a file folder, so i just grabbed one and cut it in half. I then folded it in half and placed the die at the fold, using a piece of tape to hold it place while i ran it threw my Big Shot.

Next i used a square stamp, inked in red. Then used a tiny alphabet to spell out Top Secret. With a bigger alphabet set i stamped a black X on the file tap. I cut 2 pieces of white card stock to fill my file. For my cardbase i used a piece of black cardstock from my scrap pile (luckily i had a big enough piece to make a card). I adhered the file to the card with pop up dots.

Thanks for stopping by!
