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)
Stamps/Butterfly Die/Felt/Button: Papertrey Ink (Signature Series: Butterfly, Fillable Frames #7, Love Lives Here, Through the Trees, YOF: Lily of the Valley, YOF: Sweet Peas, YOF: Violets, Asian Fusion)
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 sets...love that!
Well, I better get going for now! I hope that you have a great night! ♥♥♥
