Today was my Mystery Hostess workshop and it was so fun, afterwards the girls asked if I would join them for lunch at the Deli…hmmm? What do you think I said? Ha! Good answer. It was delicious as usual.
I am gonna be quick with my post tonight as I have a headache, I keep trying to get stuff done thinking I will just ignore it and it will go away, well it aint happening, it's a hanger on-er so I am gonna give in and go to bed.
This is one of the cards the girls did at class, I got the idea from a card by Tara Bilbao, I hope I spelled that right, I am going off of the watermark on the card. Thanks for the idea Tara!
I changed it a bit, different ribbon treatment and embellishment but the layout is the same. Ya know what? The only thing that is stamped on the card is the greeting. The flower and strawberries and writing on the main focal part of the card, that is actually on the DSP pack of Botanical Gazette. We just colored the flower with a blender pen and ink. Neat eh?
I showed the girls how to get even more use out of their jewelry tag punch…
… by making it bigger. If you missed it, I did a tutorial on how to do that on this post.
Here is the full card, I think it turned out gorgeous.
Paper: Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Botanical Gazette DSP
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, So Saffron, Old Olive, Sahara Sand
Misc: Sticky Strip, Vintage Trinkets, Jewelry tag punch, square punch, Old Olive taffeta ribbon
