A Easter Start
This year Im skipping St. Pats cards because its almost here, and Im running short of time. Plus Easter is near.
I made this card but Im not a real fan if it. It didn’t turn out how I saw it in my head. But that’s ok, its ok and well…
This is made with a TAC stamp “gerbera Daisy” I tore a page out of an old book discarded plays from a grade school. Aged it with walnut spray in a green color. Stamped it with the “graphic Blooms” flower. Used a glue pad to attach green glitter to the card, you can kind of see it. Ink was black from Memento ink. colored the flower with Marker and glittered with stickles.
This card is for Easter- I have to make a bunch and been so busy and not feeling well and… so I better do them fast. lol
This was also an TAC set. I think it was called “oopsie Daisy” The white part in the first picture with the 3 flowers running down the side is the envelope. I have started using the regular envelopes you can buy at any store for my cards. Works better for me. the measure about 6 1/2 x 3 1/2. When I cut the CS for the card I cut 6 1/4 x just under 7 (I think its 6 7/8) the pcs left I use for the accent parts. Usually works out.
I colored the card, envelope and inside of card with markers. The saying came out of another old book. It was a bit longer but…
I wont be making an cards today, tried and cant make it work. Not feeling good and my mojo is hiding. lol It started and then… Aaahh- who knows, I might just crochet some string butterflies and give them away in a candy post. I can mail them in an envelope so I think I can afford that. lol
Did anyone reading this post watch “the Bible” On Sunday, I think it was on the history channel? I DVR’d it but the whole family wants to watch so maybe this weekend.
Were getting snow today- reports of 2-8” depending on who you watch and what time. lol Its really fine but it is fast and starting to add up. How about by you? I’m near Milwaukee WI, I’d love to know.
