I am so excited to be blogging from the comfort of my living room once again! My brother made a tech house call to set up my new wireless router. I paid him in pizza. Bargain. It was well worth it to be "unplugged" again! Today I am sharing a card I made for my co-worker's birthday (and for the Sassy Studio Designs "Go Green, It's Spring" Tic Tac Toe challenge). She is pregnant with her first child right now so I selected The Greatest Gift as my image. She is colored with Copics and fussy cut. I loved sketch #95 at Cardabilities so I've used it here. I've added half a paper doily, flowers, and die cut leaves (Sizzix). The die cut sentiment is from a My Favorite Things set called Wrapped in Love and is cut with the Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics, also from MFT. The epoxy flat back was made using Epiphany Crafts Round 25 Shape Studio tool, a scrap of chevron designer paper, and a EC Round 25 Bubble Cap. Papers are Simply Pastels by Recollections.
My three in a row are: Flower, Reuse, Die Cut. My reused item is a Cheerios cereal box I utilized to make my own chipboard letters. This is great because you can use any designer paper, glitter, etc you want to make them match your project! I used the By The Letter Die-namics from MFT for the hb (happy birthday).
Here's a look at how I made these!
Pretty cool, right? I need to remember to do this more often. They add a nice touch to the project. My weekend promises to be a busy one, but I'll be back on Sunday with a new Corrosive Challenge! Hope to see you there!
