Our meetup group has a card swap every month. The month of August the theme is get well. I really didn't plan to be in the swap this month, but at the retreat I didn't have much to do so decided to make a simple card and enter the swap. This is what I came up with. Very simple using an embossing folder for the bottom of the card, and using the postage stamp punch to do several squares of pattern paper for the top. I knotted a Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon to give it a splash of color. I did a little paper piercing around the scallop sentiment which I stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink by SU. I added three gems to bring out the color of the ink, and popped it all up with pop dots to add depth. The postage stamp punch by SU is my new best friend. You can come up with so many different combinations just by using all your scrap pattern paper. I've used this punch on several cards, the possibilites are endless. I hope you enjoy!
I love crafting of any kind. I started with knitting, graduated to needlepoint, embroidery, cross stitch and ended up doing paper crafts. Scrapbooking is my all time love but since becoming a Stampin'Up! demonstrator, love making cards. Card making gives that instant gratification which I love. I love what I do and share when I can.
