I’m Back with Something New

I’m so sorry I’ve been MIA the last few days – it’s been crazy around here.  Today was the first day in over a week I actually got down to the Craft Cave.  I’ve been so busy with Girl Scouts – new leaders, new troops, I was awarded the Outstanding Volunteer award!!!  So many crazy things!

My title says I’m back with something new!  Well it might not be new for you, but it’s new for me!  So I wanted to make a birthday card for my friend Julie – who is the most amazingly nice woman I have known for over 15 years!  I made her the white snowflake ornament and wanted to make an equally nice birthday card for her, but time got away from me.  Then I saw this awesome sketch on Mojo Monday and here’s the link: http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/2013/01/mojo-monday-278.html

Honestly the square sketch has been keeping me up at night, caused me to design during meetings at work and sit thru green lights color coordinating!  So finally today I had an hour before my Girl Scout meeting so I went down to the Craft Cave and made this!

I think this card came out amazing!  This zipper flower came out so awesome!  I had never made one before and I really had fun!  Creatively it was definitely FUN!  I checked out a ton of videos on Youtube, so I don’t have one specifically to reference you to, but if you have old zippers and a glue gun – zipper flowers are what you can do!

I love how the vellum looks embossed and the arched sentiment with tiny pearls – so happy with this card and I know Julie will love it too!

Now I have to cut an envelope with my Cricut so I can mail it – maybe Julie won’t get it in time for her birthday, but she’ll get it.  Honestly I have such a tough time mailing my cards – and I live with a Mailman!!  Hope this card gives you some inspiration!

Have a Magical Day!
