Hello All! My name is Kristi and I am thrilled to be part of this blog.
Thank you Maggie for the kind invite! I woke up this morning after not sleeping very well, looked out the window and saw ANOTHER gloomy day! I then walked into my studio and pulled out bright, fun colors to created a spring card!
I started with a base card in a funky orange and stamped a floral image by Prickly Pear in VersaMark ink. I added the embossed Doodle Bug design stripe paper and thought it needed texture so of course I ran it through my Cuttlebug!
I then found a scrap of hot pink mirror paper and embossed that too. Put the two together, added a bit of ribbon and some large photo corners and atached that tothe card front.
I tore the words out of a different piece of Doodle Bug paper. I picked words that I thought were fun. The three words up top are held together by a pretty pink brad and some more ribbon. I ran a small scrap of mirror paper through the Cuttlebug and cut out the embossed flower and edged it with a silver Krylon pen.
I then put several flower combinations together and placed them on the card. I used some foam mounting tape to pop up the bottom flower and then popped up the flowers on top of the embossed piece.
I was so great to think SPRING! The groundhog in Springfield, MO, did not see his shadow so here's hoping!
