I think I’m stuck in the rut of making cute little cards with modified envelopes. Not a bad rut to be stuck in but I do need to move away from these smaller style cards. They are adorable and so much fun to make but I don’t even know whether they will mail through parcel post. I will have to take one in and ask. I’ll let you know. If they do…I’m sure I’ll be stuck in this cute-little-card rut for awhile longer! ;)
I used the masking technique to create the center circle. I punched a hole using the 2.5” Circle punch into a sticky note. Sponged the inside of the circle with Crumb Cake ink. I then lined the worded stamp from the Strength & Hope set into the circle repeatedly using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and Early Espresso ink. For projects like this, a stamp positioner is a must! I just hate to place a line off kilter and ruin the whole card. Most of the time, it would be a perfect opportunity for embellishing but it is a pain to decide just what embellishment to use :) Decisions, decisions… I digress. The Whisper White was layered onto Poppy Parade and then on a piece of Pear Pizzazz DSP from the Patterns Pack – In Color Level 1 Hostess item. I’m not really fond of the Poppy Parade but I do like it paired with the Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso :) The butterfly was stamped in Poppy Parade with Early Espresso marker just along the edge. I used the direct to stamp technique to achieve the look. It is cut out and on a Dimensional.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you’ve been inspired to pull out a color your not so fond of and give it another go! You might just find that it’s not so bad after all.
