Scored Thank you
Hi! Today I whipped up a thank you card for a friend of mine, using some Teresa Collins paper and regular orange cardstock. I started with an orange textured cardstock base in an A2 size card. I had an 8" strip of Teresa Collins paper left from another project, and decided to use my Martha Stewart Scoreboard (yes, evil Martha...it's a love/hate relationship), to add some fold lines and give the look of using a wide strip of ribbon. I placed adhesive on both sides of each fold so that it would stay in place, and then added an orange brad in the left corner and some gorgeous Twinery twine around it! After adhering the whole piece, I stamped "thanks so much" from Stampin' Up's "Curvy Verses" onto orange cardstock, and cut it into a little banner. I then inked the edges with Early Espresso, popped it up with dimensionals, and gave it a "V" ribbon-esque ending. On the flower, I added an orange piece of bling. ~Hoppy Crafting!
Kindergarten teacher by day, and self-proclaimed crafting nightowl. I enjoy long walks with my Gypsy, iced mochas, and salivate over the newest papers, embellishments, Stampin' Up products, and Cricut cartridges available. While I LOVE my job as a kindergarten teacher, I need a creative outlet in my downtime. For me, this comes in the form of scrapbooking, cardmaking, cake decorating, and other miscellaneous crafts. I am a woman who is forever 29. Artist. Married with furry and slimy children (cats, dogs, & fish). And, in case you can't tell by the blog name, I'm obsessed with frogs. :o) I'm ready to try new things...let's see where this journey takes me!
