I was a busy bee yesterday. I did 2 workshops, made 3 cards, uploaded some videos to You Tube, and vacuumed my house. Today I have one workshop and will then be working in my craft room crossing off some more of my design team commitments. I am hoping to get a lot more crossed off my list today.
Today I have a photo inspiration challenge at Card a Day Challenge blog.
Saturday Surprises Challenge:
This is a great photo to highlight a special friendship so that is what I went with for my card. When I looked at the picture besides the special friendship I saw the grasses and the purple in the dress. So I went with that idea. I used the flourish from the First Sight stamp set and stamped in onto a piece of Whisper White card stock that measures 4” x 5 ¼” using Wild Wasabi ink. I stamped it several times to fill in the space. I attached this to a Wild Wasabi card base that measures 5 ½” x 8 ½” and is scored on the long side at 4 ¼”. I took a strip of Whisper White card stock that measures 1 ½” x 4 ¼” and using Perfect Plum ink I stamped the sentiment from the set. I cut it out and used the Trio Corner punch to punch the opposite corners. I cut a piece of Perfect Plum card stock that measures 1 ¾” x 4 ¼” and punched the same opposite corners as the sentiment piece. I mounted the sentiment piece onto the Perfect Plum piece. Take a piece of Tear & Tape and adding it to the back, Cut a piece of Gold Thread and loop it on the back using the Tear & Tape to hold it in place. This was added to the card base using dimensionals. A great card for a special friend!
