Good Friday morning! I can’t believe there are only 7 sleeps before Christmas. Woohoo!!! I’m looking forward to spending time with family and friends between now and then. [grin]
Today’s card is from the “you just never know when inspiration will hit” pile. Lol! In October’s Card Class we made a card using the “Hello” from the Hello You Thinlits Die Set. As people started making this card they left the “bits” from the looped areas on the table. Yes, looped areas is a professional term. Lol! I just love when you can make use of the “bits” I always seem to have lying around and just can’t let go of. Woohoo!
CARD BASE: The base is Vellum cardstock. The inside and front are layers Basic Black and Pink Pirouette. [TIP: The card inside layers are an 1/8″ of an inch smaller so they won’t show from the front.] You will find out how I choose Vellum below.
FOCAL POINT: Yes, they are bits leftover from the Hello You Thinlits in Black Glimmer “Hello”. I was standing there talking during and started playing with the “bits” and they came together into this very black sparkly flower shape. Sweet! They, of course, needed centers and I tested lots of options and then I remembered I had just gotten the metal rimmed pearls and gave them a try. The small ones where perfect!!! I think they have an Hawaiian feel to them. What do you think? I put together the flowers and Pink and Black layers together first, not sure what I wanted to use for the base. But when I put the metal ringed pearls onto the flowers, using Vellum for the card base was an automatic. Yay!
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great Friday and pre-holiday Christmas weekend!
