Hi everyone! My niece's birthday was on the 12th and I'm just making her card. I thought I would just use one of the ones I had on hand, but I thought she deserved a special one from her favorite aunt and godmother! So when I saw this sketch from Unscripted Sketches, I knew I had to use it to make her a special card.
Maria loves green, so I went through my paper to find four different patterns with green in them. I took a 4.25 x 4.25 piece of white cardstock and covered it with adhesive. Then I started laying the strips of paper on top of it on an angle and trimmed off the excess. I die cut the rectangle in the middle as well as another rectangle from white cardstock. The decorative panel was adhered to the base, and then I inlaid the sentiment piece in the hole. The flower was made with pink pirouette cardstock and I added a pearl in the center. This is an easy card to recreate and I love the outcome, but my flower making skills need to be honed I think! The MFT girls' flowers seem to so much prettier!
That's it for me today! It was a busy weekend of crafting! I'll have another post tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!
