Congratulations! You did it!
Hello friends! I hope you are looking forward to a wonderful weekend! I have one quick card to share with you that I made with this month's newly released set, Dreams, from Our Daily Bread designs. This time of year is filled with graduation celebrations, and so I thought I'd make a quick card that would be appropriate for graduation but other occasions as well! Any achievement can be celebrated with this stamp set, and so simply and quickly! (Just a note here... the sleeve for this set shown on the store link I gave you does not show the one stamp sentiment that is in the set, "You did it", which I love!) I used SU! White and Black card stock, embossing the top layer with a QuiKutz folder, then die cutting the leafy flourishes (Marianne) and punching the various sizes for the flowers. I used my embossing pad and tools to bend and give shape to the petals, then adhered the layers together. For a touch of elegance I added silver microbeads to the centers and along parts of the petal edges. The flowers are Carl Punches, and the fern punch is Punch Bunch. All these were purchased from my local stamping store. I repurposed the ribbon from a gift, and the You did it sentiment is cut with a Spellbinders Tags 5 die and tied on with silver cording. This is REAL CAS for me, but I like how it came out and I hope to make several like this for the rack I have at my church where people can take any cards they like, and any donations go to missions.
I made this for this week's Shining the Light Challenge over on the ODBD blog... no designer paper!
Thanks for taking a peek! I have more for you shortly, but for now... have a wonderful weekend!
