I rarely write a post on Tuesday but my schedule at work has changed and I now have every Tuesday off. I took advantage of the quiet house this morning - got lots done, plus a card made - yay!
I decided to play with some flowers for my card. I had some scraps of aqua/teal colored paper on my craft desk and I love that color, so my card started there. I took out a few different die-cuts and a stamp/die-cut set from Sizzix/Hero Arts and went to work.
The white embossed flowers are from the Sizzix/Hero Arts set. The other, handmade flower was cut three times, sprayed with water, scrunched up, then left to dry. After adding the pretty brad in the center, I again scrunched it all up and carefully opened each layer. I haven't made one of these flowers in so long, and it was such fun - made me happy! :)
The leaves are from another Sizzix die-cut called Branch w/Leaves. The label is from Tim Holtz's, Styled Labels, and the sentiment is from the beautiful, Hero Arts set, Good Friends.
Before it was all finished, I thought the background could use something, so I decided to run it through the Cuttlebug with Swiss Dots embossing folder.
It's a 90 degree day here today - not only very hot, but humid too. It's been raining so much, off and on, the last few days, that the grass is beyond needing to be mowed, so I'm off to attempt that - without melting, I hope! (I do love the heat and really like mowing my yard too!)
Enjoy your day and happy creating! :)
