More Pure Innocence fun!
I finally got a chance to play with Frances and Cindy's sketch for last week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club. I had lots of fun trying to find 3 different patterned papers that I liked together, but am very happy with the ones I chose. They are from the Holiday Glitter Stack by DCWV from a few years ago. Based on the sketch, I knew I would need some fun patterns for this one. I used my SU! circle cutter for the circle layers, and I love how easy it was to cut both layers. I added some ribbon and a button to make one of Joanne B's trademark buttony-bows, and then added my nestie cut, cuddlebug folder embossed heart on top with some dimensionals.For the image, I chose Merry Kissmas, one that I stamped while at my mom's last month (I'm trying not to buy EVERYTHING I want, but to show a small amount of restraint - not always working!) I colored her in with my copic markers and then cut her out. Isn't she just darling?? I popped her and her snowman buddy onto the heart with some more dimensionals.Lastly, I decided to add something inside the card, since I actually had a recipient in mind already. A friend of mine from Julia's class knit me the cutest little coffee cup cozy (you know, to use instead of the cardboard ones they give you at Starbucks!) and I wanted to give her a thank you card (I've already asked her to crochet me some flowers for my cards so I figured I needed to butter her up some too!) I added a strip of the dark blue snowflake paper and then the sweet sentiment on a tag. I still left plenty of room to write my note. Now if only my sewing machine worked my cards would look as amazing as Joanne B's or Jody Morrow's, right?? A girl can dream, can't she?? :-D
