Hey Stampers !!
Happy Monday !! I hope you all had a good weekend !! The hubby and I were VERY busy this weekend. We stripped down Jackson's nursery and turned it into his Big Boy room !! No more crib ... no more change table ... sigh ... It was worth at (and turned out beautifully) but was also kind of sad. He's not a baby anymore !! Sniff sniff ... hahaha ... I also took some time to do some stamping once the room was finished, because my October Stamp Club meeting is on Thursday !! So todays card is a project we are doing there. It uses the Affection Collection stamp set from the Holiday Mini and I LOVE it ... take a look !!
Isn't it nice ?? I wanted to go for a different shape for this card. This one measures 8.5" x 3.5" so it fits into a business sized envelope. I wanted to show how this stamp set, although technically created to be a Valentine's set, is SO much more than that !! Its a great set for a more vintage or grungy feel, and the images are both feminine and funky. I used 4 of the 5 2011 In Colors o this card. I LOVE these colors, and they are only going to be current until the end of May !! So I better start using up some of my stash !! Hahaha.
One fun part of this card is that little paper ruffle !! I put some adhesive on my card base, and took a 1" strip of Calypso Coral dsp (after I broke up the fibres using my bone folder), stuck it down on one end and looped it along, sticking as I went. I folded over the loops, to make this flat ruffled look. Cool hey ?? the top edge is covered up with my Whisper White focal image. Love it !! Very fun and feminine. It also mimics the ruffles on the Wisteria Wonder Ruffled ribbon as well !! The little banner was stamped with some Lucky Limeade and cut out with my snips. The little Calypso Coral heart was punched with the Owl Punch too !! Love that little heart !!
Hope you guys like my card today !! I also hope my club girls will like it on Thursday !! Thanks for dropping by today !! Happy Stamping !!
