I don't know what it is about this winter, but I haven't been sick like this in a long time. My kids come home with a small cold that just knocks me off my feet. They get better quickly and I'm miserable for weeks. Oh, the joys of parenthood!
Last week I made some time to sneak into my craft room and stamp. However, I felt so miserable that I didn't have the energy to post it on here until today.
The inspiration for this card came from page 18 of the Occasions Mini Catalog. It's the card on the left side. I don't have the Designer Printed Kit that's shown on that page so I made the flower with the Fun Flowers big shot die. You can't see it in the photo, but I sprayed the flower with Shimmer Spray.
This is the first time I've made a card where I layered cardstock tone on tone. I was so tempted to sponge around the edges of the sentiment so it would stand out from the background. I resisted the urge and instead I simply popped the sentiment up on a dimensional.
I finished the card off with some ribbon, some embossing on the Old Olive layer, and a butterfly. The Big Shot makes this card a breeze to make. Now I just need to make several more so I can send out birthday cards for next month. Thanks for stopping by!
