Hey there Blog Friends!! I have a small card to share with you today using again some of the new Spellbinders that I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to play with. If you tire of this, please let me know (*wink*). I actually detoured and didn’t create what I had sketched out and planned for today and instead played with this sweet little flower. I guess what stood out to me is that it is different from all the other flowers I’ve seen. There’s an extra cut in the leaves that allows you to curl up, curl down or just manipulate them a little differently. I wanted double sided cardstock to play with so I simply adhered and distressed old book pages on the back. That way when curling, I could get either the print or the solid.
I’m using stamps from this months release over at Our Daily Bread Designs. This one is called Not Forgotten. When you see the set, you are more inclined, I think, to make a patriotic card. I find though, that the sentiments can be used for many more occasions :-) I picked up that new postage stamp that I love and cut a big frame, distressing it on the inside and out. I also cut borders on the bottom with the new Edgeabilities – I don’t think it has hit me yet the numbers of combinations I can get. It’s awesome because I get the look I have on the bottom of my card from one pass! (It’s the little things, right?)
