So how was everyone's holiday weekend here in the U.S.???
I have been so busy recently that I haven't been able to play in my studio at all. I finally had the chance Saturday and was looking forward to it. But guess what - I was so worn out by all the hiking on Friday that I didn't make one card! I cleaned the house very quickly in the morning then had my own personal NCIS marthon (Season One on DVD) on my laptop while I sat in my recliner. So the card you are seeing today is one that I made a couple of weeks ago and just haven't had the time (or energy) to post until today.
I love this new Designer Paper from Stampin'Up! It's so fresh and feminine - and EXCLUSIVE TO HOSTESSES so if you're lovin' this paper too it's time to call your SU! demonstrator and host a workshop.
To make this card, I began by cutting a piece of DP 1/4" smaller than an A2 size card then using my BigShot and a Spellbinder's circle Nestie to cut a circle in the upper half of the DP. I also cut the same size circle from a piece of white cardstock and stamped the greeting and small flowers using Crushed Curry and Razzleberry markers. I then glued the DP to the front of the cardbase (which is in the new SU! In-color: Razzleberry. Next I applied glue to the back of the stamped circle and fit it into the hole on the front of the card, gluing it to the inside of the cardbase. Once that was complete, I used the next size smaller Nestie to cut out the center of the circle on the cardfront leaving just a rim of the Razzleberry cardbase exposed.
I tied knots evenly spaced down a length of matching organdy ribbon - it's from my stash and not part of the In-Color line - and tied it around the bottom, front of the card. I then added a small yellow Prima and a few raspberry dew drops to finish.
That's it for today. Hope you enjoyed the card and the photo from my holiday weekend exploration.
Until next time,
