Stampin' On Friday (2/22/13) Thinking of you

Hi Everyone,
Today's Stampin' on Friday is without video due to a really busy schedule this week. Ethan celebrates his 11th birthday next week and we planned on his party for this Saturday. They started to predict snow (which by the way may not happen now) for Saturday on Wednesday so we decided to change his party to Friday night instead...Needless to say I'm now a day behind on everything :) it's okay, it will all come together.

Today's card was made for a friend.
I used some pattern paper from the Basic Grey paper pad called True Love.

Down in the bottom corner... I added a paper doily from the craft store and pulled out my old trusty Coluzzle (no longer available) circle cutter to make a center for the doily. I made a banner shape and stamped the sentiment, punched some butterflies using my Martha Stewart Butterfly punch and then added some My Minds Eye enamel dots.

For the top of the card I cut more banner edges and added a Freckled Fawn wood veneer arrow with another cute little butterfly and finished off the card with a sewn edge using thread that matches :)

Thats my card for today. I hope you have a great weekend. See you back here next week.
Hugs and happy crafting,
Christina

  1. Beautiful card. I found myself pulling out my Coluzzle circle recently to make a spinner card. So much easier than trying to cut circles from a template. TFS another great creation.
