I have a ton of stamps of roses, but there is something about the rose from a springtime day (a•muse studio) it has a very vintage look to it, and I thought it would be good for a faux parchment technique card.
It has a lot of elements I haven't used in a very long time. Eyelets are so easy to apply with the Cropadile, but I can't even remember the last time I used them. It took me longer to find my eyelets than it did to make the whole rest of the card. I love this corner punch, but it is so rare that I think to put fancy corners on my cardstock. The vellum and the painted paper are leftovers from a card I did a couple of weeks ago. Sheer ribbon, heated to make it curl, topped with a button tied with scrapper's floss - I haven't done that in a long time, but it's still an elegant finish to a card. There is enough room for a sentiment, should I need to add one.
I love to make little things like cards and jewelry, because I love to share them. I love blogging about them because I can share them with even more people. If you see something you really like, send me an
- if it isn't already promised to someone else, I will probably mail it to you.
