Heartfelt Thanks

Hello everyone! I have a card to share with you that follows the latest sketch from Cardabilities.

I have had a bit of a craft spending spree, so my design was influenced by my new goodies!

I started by creating a 6x6" card base. Using a Martha Stewart punch I created a mat. I inked and stitched the edge of my pink striped paper. Using a floral paper I created a banner and a created a border for it that was approx 1/4" larger and inked and stitched again. Then I started to layer. I used some Memory Box flourish dies to back my Spellbinder hearts. I added some flowers and a beautiful Spellbinder butterfly (Les Papillions Two). My horizontal strip consists of 4 layers - Martha Stewart embroidery punch, doily lace punch, lace and then some seam binding.

I added a sentiment as well. I inked the edge to continue the aged look.


Paper: Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla, Kaisercraft ballet, My Minds Eye Lost and Found Market - Market Market paper pad

Stamp: JustRite Stampers Just Because Set

Ink: Versafine vintage sepia, Antique Linen distress ink

Other: Martha Stewart doily lace, embroidery and flourish lace punches, Memory Box Quinn flourish and Elegant scrollwork, Spellbinders fancy framed tags one, Les Papillions Two (butterfly), classic hearts and classic scalloped hearts, Hooked on Craft flowers, Kaisercraft pearls, Hug Snug lyric rose seam binding, lace.

 Be sure to visit the other DT for some inspiration and I hope that you'll join in. Remember to link back to Cardabilities.

May you have a safe and wonderful Easter with your loved ones. Stay safe.
