Happy Saturday! I hope you're all having a great day so far. I wanted to share a card I made a few weeks ago. While I was trolling those tempting dollar bins at Walmart, I found this paper and loved it. So, I made several cards with it.
For the base, I used a shape from Elegant Edges. I welded the shadow to form the base, then cut the other layers in smaller sizes. I inked the edges of each piece with Chestnut Brown chalk ink.
I cut the rounded rectangle and shadow from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and stamped the sentiment on there in the same brown ink. (As you can see, I made a card that said "Happy Birthday" and one that said "Girlfriends" both using the same layout) The flower is from Serenade Solutions. I inked the edges and added a button tied with twine. The flower is attached using foam dots.
I lined the inside of the card with the same pink paper I used on the flower.
I wanted to create a matching envelope because I love this paper so much! I cut the envelope from Plantin Schoolbook and sized it to fit on my Gypsy. Please ignore the horrible pictures. I tried a new light and it looked really good on my camera...ha ha. When I loaded them on my computer, they looked terrible. Of course, I've already given the cards away now, so I can't re-photograph!
Thanks for looking. And....thanks for being a follower! I love sharing with you all hearing from you.
