Hi everyone. I hope you've had a wonderful weekend. I finally started my spring housecleaning and managed to put a dent in it. Because of that, I only had a short time to make a quick birthday card for one of my nephews.
I began with a cream card base. The papers are from Tim Holtz except for the corrugated cardstock from DCWV. All the edges were inked with tea dye Distress Ink, and the corrugated cardstock was given a light coat of picket fence Distress Paint. The butterfly sticker was attached with a foam square and highlighted with Stickles. I used a Fiskar's punch for the banner and adhered word stickers from Tim Holtz. Recollection wooden hearts were given a coat of clear rock candy Distress Stickles and a bit of twine connects the pennants. The card is a bit dark so I tried to brighten it up a bit with the Recollection silver pearls and a Tim Holtz mirrored star.
My nephew turned 11 years old, so I wanted to emphasize that by punching one of the banners around the number 11. I used foam squares to give the banner some dimension.
Well, that's all for me today. Our temperatures have soared into the 80s, a bit too quick for me. By mid-week the temps are supposed to drop back to the 50s. Have a wonderful week! Thanks so much for stopping by!
