Welcome to my site. Look around and see if you like any of my creations.
I am the mother of two grown children. I have always enjoyed scrap-booking and card-making and doing crafty things ever since I was a child, and I continue to be crafty whenever my time permits. If you are interested in a particular card let me know, some of my cards are for sale.
Don't forget to leave a little message as you pass on by.
I thought this card would be good for someone who is going through a rough time in their life or even a sympathy card.
I tried staying with neutral colors of browns for this card. The card base is dark brown and the strips on the front are 1 inch by 3 and 1 inch by 4. I used off white for the inside and stamped a sentiment with enough room for a personal message.
If you are a card-maker or scrap booker you probably have a ton of scraps. I had just that, a ton of scraps, so I went about trying to reduce that amount of scraps by making this card.
I first cut all the scraps to 3/4 of an inch. For the next step I had to figure out how I wanted the scraps to look on the front of the card. I chose four different patterned pieces and started to arrange them like a pinwheel trying to keep the colors in a cohesive pattern. I then stamped the birthday sentiment on a large circle to be the focal point of the card and die cut a circle frame around the sentiment. For the inside I used another sentiment and added some leftover scraps at the bottom.
This card could go for anyone who is going through some kind of change in their life, it could be a graduation, divorce, or even the death of someone. I love the simplicity of the thistle.
I stamped the thistle in a light purple ink and then colored the leaves a light green. I stamped a sentiment on the right side and another one on the inside. To finish off the card I added a couple of rhinestones and some winkastella for some shimmer.
