Howdy y'all! Back at ya today with one of my recent crafty projects. I made this card for the February swaps at Fancy Paper Crafters.
As much as I would like to say this was my own original idea, this time around, I found this on Pinterest. The original link it tied back to was bad but I did end up finding it on It's A Stamp Thing blog. I love "lifting" ideas from other crafters, especially when I'm in a slump and can't seem to come up with anything I'm happy with. One important thing when lifting someone's idea is to always give them credit! It may be a common knowledge idea but it's always best to link back to where you found it :).
Now, let me hop off my soapbox and get to telling you about this card! It's really quite simple. The cardstock was from AC Moore and came in a value pack of black and white. Since, black, white and red is one of my favorite color combinations, I knew I had to have the value pack. The background was done using a cuttlebug embossing folder (I cannot for the life of me remember the name of it lol). The stamps are by Stampin' Up! and is part of the Just Believe set. The patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye and is part of the Meadowlark paper line. I also used ink by Stampin Up! (I think Classic Black and Real Red). The little flowers were punched out using one of the new mini punches by Stampin' Up! The pearls are by Recollections. Lastly, the twine is by Doodlebug (I'm officially addicted to twine!).
Well, that wraps up today's creation. Wishing you all a very crafty day! Until next time ...
