A Card...Just Because!
Can you believe it? I am posting a card just for fun! Not for a dt requirement or a sketch challenge, just because! :D I must admit that I am pretty excited! Want to know the best part? It's a Stampin' Up! only card! Woohoo!
Now, I have to tell you that this is not my design and some of you have probably already figured that out! :) Debbie Olson made this card and I knew that I had to CASE it! Isn't hers gorgeous? So here is how I made mine! First I cut my base out of Whisper White and layered on some Taken with Teal. I then stamped on a piece of Soft Suede with the fabulous flourish in the Friends 24-7 set. After finishing my stamping I then layered it on top of the Taken with Teal. The next step was to add a strip of Thoroughly Modern dsp at the bottom of the card and then a piece of Taken with Teal that had been punched with my Scallop Edge punch! I paper pierced the scallops on the Taken with Teal piece and tied some Soft Suede ribbon on top! The sentiment on the tag is also from the Friends 24-7 set and attached with some linen thread! That's it! Easy peasy!
Well, that's it for today! I am a working women again. Us teachers go back to school today and so it will be meeting after meeting I'm sure! I can't say that I am looking forward to the meeting part but I am certainly looking forward to having the kiddos back!
