This was a card from May, when the lilacs were in bloom. They didn't last as long this year as I am used to. The weather got too hot for them and browned them up. So I had to trade one wonderful aroma for my heat. Not a great trade off-I want them both.
This card is made using a bottle cap that was unused-but if you pry off one that is used and not bend it up-it will work too. I smashed this face side down on a padded piece of wood with a rubber mallet until the edges curled under. It's really easy to do. I then punched a circle of brown cardstock that matches the base card and popped it inside the cap with a giant pop dut underneath, punched a smaller circle in white, added a die cut B and layered them inside the cap. I just added acrylic accents and let it dry Check it out-my thumbprint is in the stuff-as usual. I am so impatient sometimes. Happens with every card I think. I leave my DNA behind.
A tan colored card base topped with some light weight scrap papers and a few layers later, a card is born. I scuffed up the edges of the patterned paper a bit with a light sanding block and attached the bottle cap when dry with double sided tape. Make sure if you mail such a card, you use a padded envy, and extra postage. Play around with this and change the letter to anything for your correct theme. Fast card and scrap easy.
