Several new cards to share
Wednesday already? wow- this week is flying by! We just got another couple inches of snow- more snow this year then we've had in a while. I won't miss it when it's gone, I'm excited for spring.
In the midst of spring cleaning my office and photos, I've been taking a few minutes here and there to create cards with scraps and stash.
I created this card with scraps of brown and green cardstock, a MM journal tear out, Bobunny copper border rubons, an old walnut ink soaked tag, a bit of green gingham ribbon, the last of a set of K&CO glitter stickers, and a Crate paper word rubon. Feels good to use those last bits up!!
I got my box of paper treats out and found these Craft Secrets die cuts. I cut out this one with deco scissors and found a scrap of green felt to layer it on. I used a paper doily, doubled a bow and added a silk flower and button, some scraps of green cardstock, tan cardstock I cut with deco scissors and inked the edges of, and a bit of white cardstock I'd embossed with a swirls folder on my cuttlebug. I also found this SEI tag and added that to the mix.
Again, liking those Crafty Secrets diecuts, I thought this cupid one was adorable, so I deco cut the edges on it and added it to a bit of felt. I put that on top of some scraps of green and tan cardstock, added a ribbon I tied off with a button and inked the edges of the deco cut tan cardstock. I used a bit of K&CO paper on the bottom of the card, shabbying up the edges. Then I added a flower with button, and two more buttons tied with twine to finish.
Lastly- a card I am not pleased with, but decided to share it anyway. All the cardstock is Bobunny, and I roughed the edges with a distressing tool. I used sandpaper on the pink chipboard from AC, and added twine over top of the whole block. I added a tag that was soaked in walnut ink, and the flower and dragonfly stickers are from the dollar store. I added a button at the bottom of the chipboard and used a Crate paper rubon for the greeting.
Have a happy day!
