Yesterday I stocked the cupboards with a bunch of junk food to the tune of almost $200. And at Randy's request, I gave him some menu suggestions:
I said, "Grilled hamburgers." He said, "Burger King!"
I said, "Spaghetti and Meatballs." He said, "Pizza Hut!"
I said, "Chicken patties." He said, "Kentucky Fried Chicken!"
Let's just hope he was joking.
Onto the card...
|This card features pearls and the Fancy Fan embossing folder.|
I love, love, love the new Apothecary Framelits and the coordinating Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack! On this piece there are exactly 100 holes. Ask me how I know!
The Papillon Potpouri stamp set along with the coordinating Elegant Butterfly punch made it near the top of my shopping list for the new catty.
I chose this pattern from the Floral District designer series paper. It was easy to choose what color butterflies to add to the card.
|This card features the Argyle embossing folder. Since I ran out of pearls I used rhinestones.|
Here's this week's sketch!
Here are a few tips that I discovered after making the cards:
|I cut the string of pearls so that three would stay together. They fit perfectly into the space on the butterfly stamp : )|
|I was too lazy to get my "embossing folders only" cutting pads, and tiny cuts got embedded into the back of my card base. Folks, don't try this at home!|
|When you emboss a detailed card base like this one, the card stock shrinks a bit. It's better to add a layer onto the card base. Again, folks, don't try this at home!|
