Today I used part of my morning to finish up Colin’s Thank You Notes. I told him that he has to write them out tonight so I can get them in the mail because as of this weekend he’s just going to have more to do. I then decided I needed to make something new so I got started on this card using the new set Elements of Style. I used Laura’s sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. I then finished it up after we got back from speech. I love the colors and vintage feel that this card has.
To make this card I started with a Kraft card stock base and layered a strip of Whisper White that was punched with the Scallop Trim punch onto a piece of Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper. I cut a piece of Whisper White with the Top Note die in the Big Shot and then stamped my image from Elements of Style onto it in Basic Gray ink. I watercolored the image and then used a Sponge Dauber and Creamy Caramel ink to give it a vintage feel. After attaching the Top Note Die I tied on an Old Olive Satin ribbon bow and added a Latte Button threaded with Natural Hemp Twine. The sentiment was stamped in Rose Red ink and the Whisper White layer was again distressed with Creamy Caramel ink. I layered it on a Rose Red Scallop Oval and then attached it to the card with dimensionals. To finish off the card I used Pretty in Pink and Old Olive card stock punched with 2 of the Itty Bitty Punches. I added Frost White Shimmer Paint to the center of each flower and attached them with mini glue dots.
Tomorrow is a busy day. Evan has school, speech and his preschool screening. We were hoping he’d be able to attend the local preschool program but the state of Illinois is low on cash so the preschool program is most likely not going to exist next year. Since I take him there for speech each day we were hoping he’d be able to attend school there and then get speech during the school day. We’ll have to wait and see if any funding comes through in August. He’ll still be able to go to preschool where he is right now, but since it’s a private school they don’t have to offer special services such as speech. I may or may not have a chance to post since I’ll be running from home to various activities tomorrow. We’ll see how the morning goes. Have a great Tuesday!
