It’s a bit busy around here…

Hi, and thanks for stopping by. This will be a quick post, as my grandson was discharged yesterday after 9 days in the hospital, 6 of those in ICU. Needless to say, I haven’t been home enough to make cards or post blogs, but I made one last week for a class that you might like. (Glad to say he’s doing well!)

I started with a thick white cardstock base, folded to 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches, and covered the front completely with a piece of Pretty Peacock card.  I cut a piece of Pool Party to 5 1/2 by 4 inches, and used one of the Ornate Borders dies for the lacy edge. Then I cut a piece of Mint Macaron to 5 1/2 by 3 1/4 inches, and embossed that with the Ornate Flowers embossing folder.

I glued the embossed card on the diecut piece, leaving a border top and bottom, and knotted a length of Pool Party sheer ribbon around both. This was then glued to the card, leaving another border top and bottom.

Detail of the border.

The beautiful sentiment is from the So Sentimental stamp set, and was stamped in Pretty Peacock and diecut with a oval from the Stitched Shapes die set. The little butterfly was from the Butterfly Beauty die set, which might just be my favorite of all time! I did cut out a white backing for the Butterfly, as I wanted it to hang over the edge a bit.

There you have it! If this inspires you to make a card, please share it in the comments. To shop for products, click the Visit My Site button above, or if you’d like information about joining my team, contact me. I hope you’ll stop by again!
