I made this card for Emma's Throwback Thursday at My Creative Time. The challenge this week is Wild Card with your favorite holiday. I made a New Year's Card--not because it's my favorite, but because I can use it in a swap I'm in :-)
I cut everything at 5 inches (I think, my Gypsy ran out of juice). I even made the matching envelope. The card paper is Mica that I don't have much of. It's wonderful paper! I used the D'vine Swirl Cuttlebug folder and black stickles to pop out the features on the envelope.
I have lots more projects in the works, but have family coming in town Sunday for only a day and 1/2. But I hope to get some more done when my Gypsy is finished charging!
Hi everyone!! Today, we are celebrating Lesley's (Owner/Creator of Trendy Twine) mom's birthday--Happy Birthday Janice!!
Lesley asked if we wanted to make birthday tags to send to her mom. Now, I really don't think of myself as a great tag maker, but I really wanted to participate. And I really do like the way it turned out :) I found this great tag shape on one of my Cricut carts. I can't remember the name of it right now, but I wanted something a little wider since I feel the narrow tags limit me.
I used the beautiful Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine along with some ribbon for the top of my tag. The fabulous flowers are from My Creative Time--I just love these. And I finished it off with some faux stitching, a Close to My Heart stamp and some fun sequins :) Oh, the paper is Doodlebug.
I really am trying to find time play along in challenges more and when I saw the black and white challenge over at Paper Crafts Connection, I knew this was one I could do :)
The challenge was to use only black and white and upload it to their flicker group. Of course, the deadline is tonight and I was running out of time. So a little after 10pm last night, I went down to make this. I completed it in under 30 minutes--I think that is a record for me and I still like the card this morning :)
