I made this card for Julie to go with the 3Girl JAM bag I made for her in My Take on 3 Girl JAM Cotton Bags since her birthday is coming up in February. The card base is Studio G Cards & Envelopes for Crafting. The PP is Pebbles Lakeside 6x6 in Paper Pad. The flowers is Pebbles Die-Cut Wood Pieces- both bought at TJ Maxx on clearance! The Happy Birthday stamp is Skipping Stones Design (no longer in business) Peeps collection stamped with Versa Fine Onyx Black Pigment Ink. The twine is from Housecalls by Scrappin Madge September Hello Gorgeous Kit ( http://heartstringdesigns.blogspot.com/). I cut two holes in the fold of the card on the inside/outside to feed it through twice and then tied it. I wanted to give some detail to the front of the card to separate the Chevron pattern a little! I made this card for the Chevron January Card Challenge for Scrappin-n-Chattin (http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/scrappin-n-chattin/info). Now for the inside spread:
I added My Mind's Eye Bella Bella by Carina Gardner 12x12 PP that I cut down to fit the inside and back of the card. I didn't measure it, I just placed the paper on the card and then folded it and cut the part of the paper I didn't want off and then trimmed the edges and used Elmer's Craft Bond Glue Spots and Studio G Multi-Purpose Glue Stick to adhere it to the card. The "happy day", birthday cake, and "celebrate" I fussy cut out of Simple Stories Happy Day 6x6 Paper Pad and used my XYRON 1.5" Create-A-Sticker maker to adhere them to the card. You can see how I criss-crossed the twine to make it straight across in the front. The message square is also fussy cut out of Simple Stories. I thought the border on the paper would look good on this card and kinda match with the Chevron paper on front. A piece of the Chevron paper is hanging over the back, but I didn't take a picture of the back. All I put on the back was my Hero Arts Handmade from the Heart stamp and 2014. Not much to see on the back anyway.
Here are some pics of our snow we had last night. Well, these are actually taken this morning after the 4 in of snow fell. We have about 2 in of ice under the snow. It sleeted for a long time last night until it finally changed to snow. I took a picture of the ice, but it's not wanting to download. This is our vehicles. Yes, there is a car under all that snow. The first 2 pics are taken from inside the garage, so excuse the spider webs on the pictures. They're on the outside of the windows. The windows are small, but big enough to take pictures through!
TFL and have a good day!
