Happy to be Creating!


Yikes...it has been 10 days since I've made a card. The last couple of blog posts have been pre-scheduled for quite some time.  Loved that I had time to pop in to my craft room and make a few cards last night.  Creating makes me so very happy and relaxed!

This card features die cuts from Frantic Stampers.  I think there is a certain elegance to white on white cards.  The detail on the Quatrefoil Card Panel is absolutely perfect for the white on white trend.  Since this is a pretty intricate die, I used a double sided adhesive on the card stock before I die cut it.  It made adhering it to the card base super easy.

When I popped out the negative pieces of the die cuts, they were perfect to add a few little flowers.  I used distress inks to ink up the flowers and the leaves.  The leaves were made by cutting the small negative pieces in half.  The flowers were finished up with a few enamel elements.

The final touch was to stamp the sentiment on the wavy banners.  This will quickly go to a co-worker her for doing a fantastic job.  Happy Friday my friends...we have an awesome weekend planned:  a family dinner tonight, baseball Saturday and my half marathon run on Sunday!

  4. I was going to say that I love how the flowers mimic the lattice, now I see that the flowers came from the lattice - clever! Very, very pretty!
