Hey friends!! Popping in with a card that I have made for this month's PTI blog hop. Nichole provided a photo of holiday trimmings to give us some inspiration. I kept things very simple since this past week has been a struggle. Migraines every single day makes for a very long week and drains me of my creativity! Anywhoo... I did get this done along with several other projects that I will be sharing in a few days. When I saw the inspiration photo I immediately thought of making a little wreath so I pulled out my Lovely Laurels Make It Market mini kit and went to work. I had to cut a lot of those little tiny bits and only ended up using 6 of them. I think one is supposed to be a flower, but stamped in brown it looks like a tiny pinecone so I'm going with that, lol! I used one of the Lovely Laurels 4x6 papers included in the kit since it was a light grey background and reminded me of the tray that everything is placed on. That panel, as well as the white panel were die cut using my A Jillian Vance Design rectangle dies... absolutely love them!! I also learned a very valuable lesson about the using the Lovely Laurels wreath stamp and die together. When you remove the stamp from the sheet done place it immediately on your acrylic block, but drop it onto your craft mat face down and pick it up with your block. That way it assumes its natural shape and fits perfectly within the die cut. The sentiment is from the PTI set Winterberry. I used the current Freshly Made Sketches layout so I will be posting my card there, as well.
Thanks for stopping by today... happy hopping!!
