A Year in the Making
No, this didn't take a year to make, but I don't think I ever showed you this card! I made it months and months and months ago for a pub call, but it was not accepted. I still love how it turned out! The best thing about "rejects", you get to actually send them to someone!* :) And being that the season for the call is always way ahead, when the holiday finally rolls around I find, surprise, I'm more set than I thought I was for cards! (found this sifting through my basket) This uses Becky Oehler's Warm Woolen Mittens and a heart Spellbinders die for the middle. Sponging more pink ink to the underside of the heart makes it very "heart warming" indeed. ;) Snuggling the heart inside the mittens just feels like a big hug, no? (Did I mention I love this card?) TIP: Repeating the twine on the button at the lower right balances out the loop at the top left, so the string just keeps pulling your eye all around the card, love it! (I said "love" again)
Supplies: Innocent Pink, White and Kraft Pure Luxury cardstock, pink button and brown bakers twine, corner rounder punch.
*Don't worry, I do send out published cards at some point, once they are returned to me and the magazine is finished with them.
Have a great day!
