Happy Groundhog’s Day! Last weekend we were in the 40’s and the snow was gone. We woke up to 4 inches of snow on Saturday. Sunday it was minus 10! What a difference in one week!
Today is my niece’s 15th birthday! Happy Birthday Macy! If I had been thinking I would have posted a birthday card for her today. Except – I haven’t made the card or bought the gift yet! Aren’t I the terrible Aunt?!!
For the next couple of weeks I will be posting Valentine’s cards. Tis the season (for sweetheart candy!). Is it bad that I define the holidays by my love of the candy related to that season? Oy!!
Today’s card is all about nontraditional colors. I rarely use crisp cantaloupe and occasionally use calypso coral so I combined them on this card and am quite pleased with the result.
I ran the cantaloupe paper thru a PTI guidelines impression plate. I used the PTI rustic wreath and ran it through some cork to get a bit of a different look. I used my expressions thinlets and die cut LOVE several times in both colors. A bit of twine and pearls and that completes the card. At the last second I decided to add a sticker from my February Simon Says Stamp card kit to the upper right hand corner. As I said, I was pleased with the end result!
Supplies: CS: SU! calypso coral, crisp cantaloupe. MFT cork. Dies: PTI rustic wreath and guidelines impression plate. SU! expressions thinlets. Other: SU! crisp cantaloupe twine and linen thread. Pearls. SSS February card kit stickers.
