We had lots and lots of snow mixed with some ice this past week. More is expected Tuesday night; but by the end of the week, we are supposed to be seeing temperatures in the 50s. With the weather keeping me indoors, I spent some time doing a lot of fussy cutting for future projects.
My card today was made for a relative's January birthday. The pattern papers are all from Prima's Nature Garden line. I started with a salmon-colored card base that I inked quite a bit with Distress Inks to tone the color down. The chipboard frame was painted with green crackle paint, the edges inked with tea dye Distress Ink and then covered with a coat of Stickles. Butterflies and lace edge border were made with Martha Stewart punches. The pearl/rhinestone swirl is Prima. The flower is from Michaels and highlighted with Stickles. I stamped the word wish onto a Heidi Swapp label.
The image of the little fairy was also highlighted with Stickles. I love these shabby papers designed by Jodie Lee Patterson for Prima. I was fortunate to get an autographed pad of these 6x6 papers from her through her etsy shop.
Well, that's it for me today. Need to get dinner started. Wishing you a wonderful week! Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments.
