I am always vowing to have birthday cards made up and ready to go and always fail miserably in the actual doing of this. Then I'm suddenly faced with a birthday countdown and no card in hand. Since I make cards all the time, it would be a sin to buy a greeting card to send to a family member. So get ready, I'm going to be making a few so I can be one step ahead of the situation. Wish me luck!
My card this morning is a very simple card using cream colored cardstock, a few layers, an embossing folder from Cuttlebug called Madison, hand colored flowers and leaves and I also colored some seam binding to match the flowers. I always have cream and white seam binding purchased by the roll and then I just smear my ink pad across my craft mat, spray it with some water then drag my seam binding through the color...scrunch it up into a ball and let it air dry. Then everything matches which I love.
What do you think about my bow? I tied it using the Bow-It-All from Zutter! It is becoming my most treasured tool as my bow tying skills are sadly lacking.
All that is left this morning is for me to remind you to "Breathe"!
