The other day I made two sympathy cards. I had cut enough of the papers to make 3 of the smaller ones, but I hadn't gone back and made them. Saturday, as I was in Creative Avoidance mode - not preparing for my Sunday classes - I decided it was time to make cards with the rest of the pre-cut pieces. I only had partial pieces for the circle layers and sentiments, so I was kinda free-forming those.
For the first one, I cut a mini doily with one of my new MFT dies and layered it on the blue and green pieces I had left over:
I stamped the butterfly image from the SU Thanks For Caring set (Occasions Mini) with Baja Breeze, but I stamped it off before I stamped it on the vanilla circle. The sentiment is from the same set, and is stamped with Always Artichoke.
Please note: Yes, I know the ribbon is crooked, but I've since fixed it.
For the second card, I had no spare parts, so I played with another of my neglected MFT dies - this time a set of nested pieces for a nice layered look:
The sentiment is from one of the A Muse Studio sets I bought in a weak moment. It's a great sentiment set because it covers just about every occasion. As much as I love the SU Teeny Tiny Wishes set, and how nicely the sayings fit into the Word Window punch, I do like this A Muse set since the sentiments are a little bigger. And one can never have too many sentiment sets.
I might go back and add pearls to the sides of that sentiment piece to make it look a bit more finished. I think. Yep, I'm gonna do it. Later.
In other news, my Paper Smooches order arrived a few days ago, and I feel the need to make something funky. Maybe tonight after my Stamp Camps.
Thanks for stopping by!
