I've been commissioned by my husband's mother to make a box of cards for her friend's retirement party. I did this for her birthday earlier this year, and she really appreciated it. She called me on Sunday and asked me if I could have this ready for her before Saturday. As in this Saturday. Three days from now. I told her it could be done. And it can, as long as my boys cooperate. This has been a busy week for us and I've had family business to take care of up until today, so I've been slowly working on this card.
I used our new Buzz and Bumble paper pack to make this card. I edged all the papers in Cocoa Ink to give it more dimension without the added weight of more paper. The flower on the sentiment is from the Buzz and Bumble Assortment Pack. I stamped the sentiment with our A Little Thanks stamp set. The sentiment I edged in Goldrush Ink and Cocoa Ink to help make it pop.
Knowing that I have three days to get a box of cards (and the box itself) designed and created, would normally turn me into a frantic mess. But Close To My Heart has the perfect solution for this. They have this wonderful 48 page booklet called Make It From Your Heart. They've created exclusive card (and scrapbooking) patterns and included dimensions and completed examples of each project. And that's where I got the pattern for this card.
This is a Must-Have booklet to keep with your paper crafting supplies. The pre-designed patterns make creating so much more of a breeze. And it makes keeping my commitment less stressful. I bought this booklet because I have a little one at home. He makes it impossible to spend hours online scouring websites and blogs looking for card patterns. You can order yours here today to maximize your scrapbooking and card making time!
I already have the next pattern, stamp and paper pack picked out for the next card. Come back tomorrow to see it.
