OMGoodness, this was a terrible week to try and make cards! The grandkids had two weeks off school for the Christmas holiday and went to school for one day, and then they have been off for 3 days because the temp is below Zero! My little darlings love to help! lol I’ll have some photos at the end:)
All the supplies in this card are Stampin’ Up! unless noted. I’ll post all the supplies at the end, but ask if you have questions:) Here’s the sketch I used. Obviously, I didn’t use the color challenge;)
What do you think, will this be cute for a little girl? I like to stick pretty close to the sketch samples. Especially now, I haven’t made any “real” cards for over a year:( I’m almost frozen looking at all my papers and supplies. I worked on this card for three days! Ok, all the grandkids were here running around, but seriously, it feels like with the new year, everyone’s style changed, except mine:(
I did use a newer punch from Stampin’ Up! called Hearts Border Punch. It made the four little hearts on top of the image. I actually punched four hearts and three of them show the background. The fourth heart, on the far left, I cut out of the paper and taped it to the hole so they would all be the same color. For the hearts on the right, I used a small heart punch for the biggest heart and for the small hearts and the little dots, I used the Owl Builder Punch.
It never seems like a lot of supplies until you start writing it down! I don’t like to retire my supplies, even though we’re supposed to. You could use a current Stampin’ Up! image instead. I think the only thing on this card that is not Stampin’ Up! is the card base, it’s an extra heavy cardstock because I also send cards to Operation Write Home and the card bases need to be extra sturdy.
Ok, for those of you who have been asking, here are a couple of photos:)
Here are three of my granddaughters. Lawrence is on the right making funny faces! This was the best out of about 8 or 9 that I took! Trying to get four kids to smile and look at the camera, all at the same time is nearly impossible! lol
Thanks for coming by today to have a look:) I hope to get back onto a schedule very soon. I hope you stop by again:)
