A Spirelli Long Card


Good evening everyone! I am back with another favorite card! This week's "Limited Supplies Challenge" on SCS was to make a long card that measured 4x8. We could not use dp and we had to limit our embellishments and layers! Yikes! I had never attempted a long card before so I was a little nervous. For the card I decided I was going to make it fairly simple. I knew I wanted the background to be white and I wanted bright springy colors to accent it. I had also seen a challenge earlier on the SU! demo portion of Splitcoast to try spirelli on a card, so I did! I really like how this card turned out! The ribbon is from the blog candy that I received last week and the brads are from Hobby Lobby. This card was really simple because of the fact that there was no stamping and not much layering involved. I used my rub-ons for the sentiment and some dimensionals to pop up the spirelli scallops. Other than that, this card is pretty straightforward! I am going to attempt to make a video tutorial on the spirelli scallops later. HOPEFULLY, sometime this week. If you have any questions on the card, just ask! :D I hope that everyone has a joyous evening. Nick and I are probably going to stay home and spend some QT together. We will probably eat some pizza and watch a movie. I am looking forward to it!

Recipe:
Stamps: None
Paper: Whisper White, Lavender Lace, Apricot Appeal, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery

LOVE this!! I hope you do end up making a tutorial because I'd love to know how you did that. However I don't even have the scallop punch so I wouldn't be very successful at making those anyways! :) Thanks for your opinion on our house situation... I love and value your input!

Great job on the challenge! I'm liking your new blog look, what spurred this layout? Way to use that blog candy instead of hoarding your huge stockpile!:) Hugs!
