My take on CardPatterns sketch #8 (thank you Kristen for the link!)
This card took too much time to create-IMHO. How it started is not how it ended. I think part of my lack of "mojo" was that this was the first card that I made using this paper. Since it was so out of my ordinary colors, I really struggled with how to put the pieces together. But, in the end, I am very happy with how this card turned out, and the 3 of these cards (scroll thru the rest of todays postings...) will make a nice pack of cards to sell at my next craft fair.
The card size is 6x6. An usual size for me to use, but it worked for this layout. I think I hold off on making this card since it takes extra postage (LOL! remember stamps increase in price in May 2009, again!)
I used some prima flowers, a felt flower Kris gave to me, but it is on top of some green cardstock that I used scallops on to make a mat. The circle sentiment was typed on the computer. I didn't line it up correctly using the cricut, but love the offset! Felt butterfly by K&Co., embossed white paper with cuttlebug. Like I have said before, I love the green and orange color palette. I think I will have to do some more summery cards!
Have a summery day! thanks for stopping by-
