Hi there friends!! Thanks for joining me yesterday for the Frame Pincushion post and tutorial. I can’t wait until I have time to place around with that a little bit more. It is definitely on my gift list. In the meantime, I have a quick card to share today, and as I like to say, it really is simple. I’m working to keep out of a rut and sometimes that means stretching your creative muscle. I don’t think I do CAS (Clean and Simple) very well, but because of that I don’t want to quick trying. Today my creative muscle stretch was to save time by forgoing the design paper. It really makes me conjure up a different kind of card but it’s a great exercise.
I used two Impression-Obsession Backgrounds then stamped a sentiment on top. I kept away from the ribbon and lace (this time), but pulled out one of the flowers I made on the flower loom (love that thing!!). This one is made with wired sheer ribbon and that’s definitely the way to go. I punched along the bottom of the card with a MS border punch then finally embellished with pearls.
