Sometimes playing it by ear is a good thing. I had a nice day yesterday filled with friends. Kim asked me to watch the munchkins for a bit while she ran to the store. Izzy and I sat and colored while Savannah sat in the laundry basket and played on the iPad. After that I went over to see Heather, She did something to her back so we went to the Dr. and then out to lunch. The evening was capped off by an impromptu BBQ and some wine. I came home and decided that I needed a little destruction so I watched A Good Day to Die Hard. The perfect movie when you want some explosions! LOL! Pretty good day huh?! What have you all been up to?!
Today I’m sharing with you a card that I made for my friend Danielle to send to her aunt. When I make a card for someone, especially someone that I know, I try to incorporate a little bit of them into the card, The base of the card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I stamped the Hello Doily Stamp onto a piece of Very Vanilla in Soft Sky and then the greeting in Melon Mambo from the Simply Sketched Host(ess) Stamp Set. Across the middle is a piece of the 5/8″ Crochet Trim. I stamped a ticket from the That’s the Ticket Stamp Set in Blushing Bride and punched it out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch. The flagged piece is stamped with one of the stamps from The Open Sea Stamp Set in Lost Lagoon and one of the Very Vintage Designer Buttons with some Linen Thread tied in a bow is adhered on top of them with a Mini Glue Dot. Next up are three flowers and some leaves from the Stippled Blossoms Stamp Set. They are stamped in Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo for the flowers and Wild Wasabi and Always Artichoke for the leaves. Some Paper Snip action and Stampin’ Dimensionals help get them on the card. To finish it off I “scattered” some Basic Jewels Pearls. The card has a vintage feel but with a clean and modern twist just like the person that received it! I had fun making this card and love the way it came out and hope that you do too! Thanks for coming by to see me today, have a lovely Sunday! 🙂
