Live Life and spread some joy!

I was watching Youtube the other day and on Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts channel she had this amazing card she was planning on giving to the Stampin Up Advisory Board.  Here’s a link to her card:  http://www.dawnsstampingthoughts.net/2013/09/frame-card-video-.html

When I saw this card I knew it was the card I needed to make for a few friends who need a little pick me up!  Here’s the card I came up with.

When I tell you this card was easy and fun to make – the FUN part was the best!  Can you tell that this card is a shadow box type of card?

The flower was made from 8 Mixed Blossom punches in Cherry Cobbler and 2 flowers from the Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge that were stuck onto a pin and held together using a brad.  The edges of the flowers are inked using Early Expresso and then sprayed with alcohol/champagne mist. Dawn uses the Flower Fun Big die in her video which I don’t have but I was able to use my resources and come up with about the same thing!

The card itself is cut 7 X 10 1/4 from Basic Black, the inside piece is from my black and white supply.  I used the Apothecary framelit to cut the Basic Black and then two oval framelits to cut he Crumb Cake and off-white card stock.  The sentiment stamped in Staz-On came from a stock supply of stamps I had purchased from Michaels and then I added Jewels to it.

I love how this card came out.  The biggest issue I had with this card was it’s size!  7 X 10 1/4 doesn’t fit into your average envelope, so I had to make my own envelope.  Next time I’ll adjust the card so it will fit easier.  Maybe if I had the envelope punch board I could have done something better.  Oh well – on to the wishlist!

If you’ve been thinking about becoming a Stampin Up demonstrator, they have an AWESOME program for those of us with a bunch of stuff for only $25.  Contact Betty Boop – she’s got the specifics at the bottom of this post http://booptique.wordpress.com/2013/10/01/so-much-to-tell-you-about/

Can’t wait to see what you come up with!  Have a Magical Day!
