PTI Make It Monday #1: Go To Sentiments

February 9, 2011

Hi everyone!!  I hope that this post finds you having had a wonderful Wednesday so far, and gearing up for a great evening.  I have to leave for church in about a half hour...I am the baby caretaker tonight, so I definitely have to be on time!  Tee hee! {Not that we are normally late for church...only sometimes!}

But, I was able to do a card just for myself today!  Doing some challenges that I really wanted to do, and using some of my PTI product....which feels like it hasn't been touched in forever.  Sometimes I wonder if I take on too many responsibilities at once....but then I realize that I love them too.  So, it is all good!

Anyways...I got this sweet little card done today.  I did it for two of the Anniversary challenges going on at PTI right now; the Make It Monday challenge and the Color Combo challenge (I chose to use the pure poppy, spring rain, kraft & vintage cream combo for this one).  I also used Waltzingmouse Sketch #33 for it.  Without further ado, here it is!
"Thank You" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (red, kraft) & Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper: My Mind's Eye (Quite Contrary: Jack & Jill "Cute" engaging Gingham)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: sky blue, cranberry) 
Twine: Lawn Fawn Trimmings (Dapper set)
Jewels: Creative Cafe (red, blue) 
White Pen: Uniball Signo
Diecut Machine(s): Cuttlebug & Cricut Expression by Provo Craft
Diecut cartridge: Stamping (larger butterfly) by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold red cardstock in half to make card base.  Stamp the mix of sentiment to the front of a vintage cream cardstock block, and then adhere to a kraft cardstock block.  Adhere the entire block to the front of the card, and add three jewels to the lower left side of the card.  Draw a white penned line around the sentiment block, interrupted at the jewels.  Cut the larger butterfly from red gingham paper at 1.5" using the Cricut Expression & Stamping cartridge.  Cut the smaller butterfly from felt using the steel die and Cuttlebug.  Sew them together with a button and twine, and then adhere the entire accent to the front of the card to finish.

I am super happy with how this sweet little card turned out!  I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to pull off the Make It Monday challenge....using all those different sentiments together, and keep the card uniform.  But, I like it!  I think it ended up turning out okay!  And....I used SO many different that! 

Well, I better get going for now!  I hope that you have a great night! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
