I always hate it when I go so long between posts! It is just not like me to be away for so long. I have tons of exciting news to share, but not yet, so I will just leave you with a card I made for today's Limited Supplies Challenge. The rules were as simple as 1-2-3; meaning one color of cardstock, 2 pattern papers and 3 embellishments. I only added 2, but didn't know if my nestabilities die counted as an emellishment, or the piercing I did with the Ornare piercing template. I just played it safe!
This is the last card that will be going in the donation pile, as tonight is the auction! I am headed out to Michael's to pick up a decorative box to house all of the cards, envelopes and stamps. I decided that I would include the extra postage required to send out some of the super thick cards that are in the stash. Most of them should probably be hand delivered anyway, but I thought it was a nice gesture and wouldn't cause the purchaser any stress about getting them mailed. I will quit rambling and get on with the card deets!
I wanted another baby card for the stash and decided on a gender neutral green. I thought this design could work well for a girl or a boy. I first cut out my die using my cuttlebug and Labels 4 Nestablities die that I just got from Ellen . I used the stork image from the wonderful retired "Buggies and Booties" stamp set and stamped it with Palette Noir ink and colored it with an assortment of reinkers and prismacolor markers. I sponged the edges with Antique Linen distess ink.
I chose simple papers from the My Mind's Eye slab that I use quite a bit. I did the piercing at the top using my Ornare piercing template and mat.
This is a very simple design, yet I like how it turned out. Thanks for fluttering by!
I will be back tomorrow with one of Jen's new SFYTT! I hope you will all play along! They are so much fun!
