So cold and damp today even with the sun peaking out. Another two inches are coming and we will set an official seasonal record for snow. And I will set a record for most times staying inside. I will venture out on Wednesday to take a class from Lynell Harlow of Dreamweavers Stencils. I am thrilled as I love the company. Whatever I make, I will post as soon as possible.
This fairly quick card used a sticker for the middle and more scraps of paper. But those pretty seams between the white card stock are stickers-border stickers! I used a white base card and covered it with this bamboo textured vellum. Taking a smaller piece of the peachy textured card stock, I layered that on after edging the paper with greenish ink. The white pieces-two are the same size and one a bit larger in the middle-and these are edged in green also. I covered the inside edges with the border stickers-taping them behind to keep flat.
Punch out a couple of flowers and add a tiny flower brad to the center and then mini pop dot them to the outside white blocks (I trim my brad backs to not show). Add a flower sticker to a scrap to make sturdier and then pop dot it to the center of the white square. Add a phrase stamped to the top and bottom in green. I also added Dimensional Acrylic to the flower sticker to make it pop a bit. This is about as close to spring as I am gonna be this week.
An extra thing I did was make an envelope from some patterned paper. I guess when someone gets this in the mail, they won't think it's junk mail!
