Good morning! I can't believe that Easter is just around the corner. Do you have any special plans? We are going to get together with family, have dinner and let the little kids hunt for eggs. It's going to be fun. I miss having little children who get excited to hunt for Easter eggs but my nieces and nephews are so cute... it's always fun to spend time with them and the rest of our family.
This week at CropStop we are to make a one-layer card. I don't do too many of them because I love my layers! But this card came together fairly quickly and I think it's kind of cute.
I cut out the card using Spellbinders Blossom die. The way to do it is to first score and fold the card in half. Have the edge of the spellbinders hang over the folded edge of the card as shown below.
Below is a picture of the underside of the card. See how the cutting edge of the spellbinders is beyond the folded edge?
Below is a picture of the card after being cut out and embossed.
After I took the picture above I put the card back inside the spellbinders and used a sponge to lightly add pink ink around the edges. I'm sorry that I forgot to take a picture of it.
I used Waltzingmouse Stamp set Spring Baskets for the image and Sentiment and colored it with Copics. I then added Diamond Stickles and used a small paint brush to spread it around evenly.
I added a pink bow and viola'! My card was done!
Please join us in CropStop's One Layer Card Challenge. It's actually not hard at all!
I will be back later today to update my other post:
I have the photos ready now, all I have to do is write it all up.
Thank you for stopping by and like everyone, I LOVE comments!
