Now that we have all of the important stuff out of the way I have a couple of cards to share with you :^)
My first card uses Beautiful Hymns.
I picked another one of my favorite hymns to use on the card along with one of the graphic images. I used musical note pattern paper to cut out my doily and some fun striped paper for the banners. I finally found instructions on how to make the vintage type bows with seam binding ribbon that actually worked when I tried it. I got the seam binding wet, scrunched it up into a ball and microwaved it for 45 seconds (you may have heat 2 or 3 time until the seam binding is dry). When dry, wrap the ribbon in a figure 8 and die the middle with a small piece of embroidery floss. Depending on how loops you want will determine the number of times you wrap the ribbon into the figure 8. My bow has 4 loops on each side. Pretty easy huh?!
My next card uses Many Thanks. I kept my card fairly simple without any of the normal layers I usually have on my cards.
I started off with kraft card stock for my base and using spellbinders smallest large long rectangle I embossed a frame for the sentiment. I punched out flowers from pattern paper scraps and added buttons for the centers. I finished off the card by stamping butterflies from the Fly Free.
Now I am going to send you on your way to Veronica's blog for some more inspirations! Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win the entire January release!
