Today I’m taking a little break from last month’s Blossom Builders and Simply Sent Card Class Shares to bring you a fresh and fun NEW card for last week’s the SQSC32 Challenge. This time I’m playing along too…
Today’s card changes up the sketch a bit…. LOL, so did my original SQSC32 challenge gift bag. Still using neutrals colors, today’s card features a pretty patterned print from the Mocha morning Designer Series Paper Pack along with Exclusive Occasions Mini products and the Summer Solstice Stamp Set.
The stamped sentiment added to the Apothecary Art stamped labels collection Framelit is from the Summer Solstice Stamp Set. Card stock used on today’s SQSC32 card share: Confetti Cream, and Early Espresso.
LOL… didn’t really like the way the butterfly body stamped out, so I added two gold brads… tinier mini silver brads would probably have worked better… but I liked the gold against Mocha Morning DSP too.
Commonly, when piercing with a mat pack and paper piercing tool, I go through at least two layers… that helps the paper lay flat and provides more room for gluing to the final layer. Two piercing spaces were left between brad holes.
Chocolate Chip 5/8” Satin Ribbon, tied into a pretty double loop bow was attached with three mini glue dots.
Today’s card is so much prettier in person… sometimes it’s difficult to capture a stunning card with film and my PHD camera (push here dummy = PHD). Of course today’s card would require additional postage (USPS 65 cent stamp) due to bulkiness and brads… but I think it is worth it don’t you?
Now… who would like to receive today’s card in the mail? Leave a nice comment and I’ll announce the winner on Friday… then you can send me your snail address. Oh, and you don’t have to reside in the continental US either… I’ll mail it wherever YOU are!
