My First CropStop Card - FUN!
I was trying to figure out how to incorporate numbers into my card and then it hit me - the number can be spelled out! "You're one in a million" just seemed like the right touch. I used the most gorgeous designer paper: DCWV's "The French Country Stash"
I love the other sentiment that I used: "When I want to see Love defined, I look at you!" I wanted it to look like it was part of the paper so I stamped it lightly in pink.
I love butterflies so I just had to use Tim Holt's butterflies. I only inked up one butterfly at a time and punched them out with my postage stamp punch. I distressed the postage stamps and the note with distress inks for a vintage look.
More seam binding! This time I used some that was only slightly crinkled. I fussed and fiddled until I had it just like I wanted. I put a gold heart charm on top of the center of the bow.
Thank you for your visit. I appreciate all visits and lovely comments so much! It always makes my day to read them.
