Hey there! The weekend is winding up and finally a much needed break in our heat wave ( if you call 88 degrees cooler). Certainly are the lazy, hazy days of summer!
Today's card isn't quite what I intended. I cut it apart, pieced it together, unglued things and this is what I ended up with:
And from a different angle...
Originally, I started out with a cream card base. I took a pretty Webster's Pages circular diecut, folded it in half and attached it over the card fold. I glued some brown Webster's lace around the curve and then took some green Webster's trim and adhered that on top of the lace. I then cut the cream card base away from the circular diecut on the front of the card. The green birdcage is a Webster's Fabric Thread and the little brown flower is one of their Whimsees. I stamped a PTI sentiment to the tag and adhered in with pearls and rhinestones from Recollections. But I wasn't happy with that, so I carefully cut the diecut from the cream card base. I cut a piece of Bazzill sage green cardstock and attached it to the back of the diecut. To cover the joint, I just tied a piece of brown ribbon around it. A Martha Stewart punch was used on the corners. And see that flower? That was made with an EK punch. You were supposed to use a strip of 12 inch paper, punch it and roll it up. However, I used an 8 inch strip. The flower would have been a perfectly round circle shape, but I kind of like the imperfect shape of it. And that's probably the only thing I like about this card! lol A lot of work but I'm not happy with it. Maybe I'll take it apart again!
Enjoy the week ahead! Just a reminder that my blogversary giveaway is still open until the 14th (see post below).
