You Mean so Much to Me.....
Good morning everyone! I hope you had a wonderful long holiday weekend! We totally enjoyed it in our household. Much needed rest and lots of crafting for me! I spent two days just playing...you know....trying new papers, colors, ribbons, etc. just to see how it works! I had so much fun and learned a lot of tricks for using some of the products I already own. I hate to keep spending when I have lots of things that I need to use before I buy more. Well, as I'm saying this, my card does use one new thing I purchased. I just couldn't resist this new embossing folder! It is a Cuttlebug folder (Madison) I just love it and you will be seeing it many different ways in the coming days! I love the iron works look and feel to it; and I also enjoy making white on white cards. I stamped my sentiment on watercolor paper and cut out using a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two die and popped it up just a little to add a little dimension. I just didn't want it to totally blend in with the background. My little butterfly is from Martha Stewart and once I punched it, I added stickles to give it a little glitz! My sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations and the item number is: HCPC 3382 Magnificent Cardinal Rose PreCut Set.
I love the way the card turned out! Simple but still quite elegant and could be used for a woman or a man. I left the inside of the card blank so I can write a note when I mail this one.
Well I think this is all for me today. Be sure and check back tomorrow because, believe it or not, it will be Heartfelt Creations Wednesday. We will be zooming right through this week! I hope you have a great day and that the sun shines wherever you are! Be sure and take a moment out just for you and "Breathe"!
