Well I survived yesterday and was not too tired last night. I got everything done I needed to and was not late for anything. Today is my yarn shop day. I am hoping to get a new project started so I have something to work on in the evening.
It is time for our Thursday Focus. You may have come here from Helen's blog - Blue Dahlia Designs. If you are starting with me, you can hop all the way through and end up back here.
We have chosen to highlight the Cheerful Tags dies this week. This is a great set of 2 dies you can use to make tags. I opted to use one of the tags to make a panel for my card. I began by embossing my layer using the Petal Burst embossing folder. Using some Wisteria Wonder card stock I cut the top of the scallop tag out. I took some gold satin ribbon and wove it through the slots. The ribbon was then wrapped around to the back of the embossed layer and secured with Tear & Tape. The layer was then attached to a Wisteria Wonder card base. Using the Flower Fair framelits I cut out 2 of the petal flowers and 2 of the leaves. The edges of the flowers were sponged and then dimensionals were used to layer them. The leaves were added with glue dots. This was attached to the panel using a dimensional. The center of the flower is one of the other framelits in the set. After it was added I finished off the flower with a pearl. I needed a sentiment so I stamped the Thank You from Circle of Spring and punched it out using a 1" circle punch. I layered it onto a 1 1/4" circle punched from Wisteria Wonder. The sentiment was added to my card with a dimensional. Here is my completed card.
