I love this card - in fact I am going to have a hard time giving it away. I may have to save it for someone that I know appreciates pretty cards. ;) Just a joke...sort of. I used the very very cute "Fly Away with Me" Stickerz Set from EAD Designs. The BEST part about these stickers (besides the fact that they are really cute) is that you can reposition them. Say for instance, that you put the "happy birthday" on the right hand side of the card, but then decide the card needs something else - you can do that without ripping up the entire card.
|I don't normally embellish the inside of cards, but this one needed a little extra something!|
|I added a little gift card "holder" to the inside of the card.|
- Card Base: 4 1/4 x 11" scored at 3" and 8"
- (4) Patterned Paper: 4 x 2 3/4" - 2 for the inside of the card & 2 for the outside
- "Fly Away with Me" Stickerz Set - EAD Designs (kites, hot air balloon & happy birthday)
- To "color" the kites and hot air balloon, I used scraps of patterned paper & just trimmed around the sticker.
- "Just for You" sentiment from Scrappy Moms Simple Sentiments set
- Buttons - to create the closure I sewed the larger button to the card (the stitches get covered up by patterned paper on the inside of the card) and then threaded twine through a smaller button and attached it to the card using a glue dot. To create the loop to keep the card closed, I just knotted the twine.
- Sakura Gelly Roll Pen - White
- Corner Rounder Punch
After reading Molly's great post on Army Wife Learns the Cricut, I am seriously thinking about changing up the way I scrapbook a bit. Don't worry - I am still planning on doing layouts, but I love the idea of incorporating the "hybrid" method of scrapbooking too! Once I finalize my plan, I will share it with you.
