I was a busy little bee in the shop yesterday. I finished 3 lovely cards and got all the “grown up” work done too!
I’m getting pretty quick at making these burlap flowers. I added 2 leaf headed pins from Maya Road and a generous poofy bow made from RRR seam binding. Pearls top off the flowers….nice change from buttons.
I added a bit of twine to the dimensional tag sticker…then layered it over several vintage images. The post card is from Graphic’s Fairy. There’s also a Maya Road tiny craft envelope and of course more burlap. I stitched up all the layers for detail.
I like the look of the poofy ribbon bow squished in between the burlap flowers. Isn’t that a pretty brad??
See I told you there was a lot of layers. I added these sweet mismatched buttons and that was all the embellishing this card could take without getting too busy.
Do you find that you have to have noise on when your creating? I do. I’ll put a show on netflix on my computer and just listen as I work. While I made the cards yesterday I was listening to Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein . LOL Odd choice I know…but it sure did bring back memories of when I watched it the first time as a child and thought it was really scary. lol
Okay off to get ready for work. Today I’m in the mood for Halloween projects. Gee I wonder why??? LOL
Hope you all have a wonderful day and find some time to be creative.
