A funny thing happened on my way to making this project. I was typing away at this post and uploaded the picture only to realize that I used Sahara Sand instead of River Rock. Argh! I hate when I do that! So back I go to recreate the holder in the correct color. It actually was a little blessing in disguise because my original had a design flaw that was bugging me so this gave me the opportunity to fix it.
The long Night of Navy and Lucky Limeade layer is actually a belly band and the tilted layer and the to/from tag are attached to it so that whole thing slides off to get at the CD inside. The tree is from Perfect Presentation which I inked up in Lucky Limeade then embossed with clear EP. I mounted it on my tilted layer which I tried to dress up with a bit of faux stitching. In real life it's kind of muddy and I wish I hadn't done it, but I'm sure my nephew won't be so critical! The tag is from the aptly named To & From Tag and I added the button and baker's twine to jazz it up a bit. I followed a tip from Nance at Canopy Crafts about using a straight image on a tilted panel, which I like very much!
