A quick post today ... I'm off out to visit my daughter, Juli. It's her birthday today :)
Here's my card for Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 136 - with loads of card snippets on it.
WOYWW post on Wednesday there was a pile of prints on my desk. I'd pulled them from my Gelli plate, when I was having
Also tucked away was a pack of double fold aperture cards from Card Creations - perfect! I taped the print behind the aperture. Stamped the greeting and then attached the ribbon. I did this by cutting a slit on either edge of the front, threading the ribbon through, and then I tied a bow to the left of the greeting. That done, I adhered one of the folds to the back of the aperture, thus hiding all the messy gubbins underneath :)
To finish the card off, I die cut and punched out various butterflies from a selection of card snippets I had squirrelled away, decorated them with red or gold liquid pearls and attached them here and there on the card front and print. Job done!
Couldn't have been easier, so why did it take me so long to think about it :) I'll be doing much the same with some of the other prints still lying on my desk.
Right, I'd better get a wriggle on. The EM has just reminded me of the time ... time to hit the road.
Be back soon :)
