It's Saturday morning...a beautiful sunny start to a new day. It's been a little cool the last few days, but March had been very beautiful and I am sure April will warm up too. I L.O.V.E. spring. Everything is fresh and the different greens on all the budding trees just makes me want to stay outside and drink in all the beauty I can.
The card I have for you today was made for my husband. For the background I used a page from an old dictionary I have that I have been tearing up to use for appropriate words on a card. I love the way it turns out. The word on this one, of course, is "husband". I stamped a blue SU! flourish to give it interest. And used silver glitter letters and a heart with some small rosebuds. the cut out background there is a Cricut cut from the Storybook cartridge. That cartridge has so many elements on it that can be used on cards...I just love it and use it all the time.
The bottom navy blue and silver piece is a piece of blue cardstock I embossed flowers on in silver and crimped it to look like cardboard. Then of course, the buttons. I love the buttons.
My goal in this blog is to show a lot of self-made embellishments. I love making my own embellishments because of the color combinations and also for cost. It's really fun to play around with different cuts and colors until I am pleased with the result.
TTFN (ta-ta for now!!)
