Easy Peasy card and new stuff! Five Minute Friday #1
Hello! How have you been? It's been a while since I've posted. I've been busy de-Christmasing the house and gearing up for CHA. I've also been working on a little project and I finally finished it (top secret). It is in the mail! So...in 2 or 3 days, once it gets delivered, I'll be able to post it - along with a a tutorial.
In the meantime I've gotten some new stuff over at the store including the new Sugardrop paper from Memory Box!
It took me longer to photograph this than it did to create it! Seriously! Since it is 11:30PM the light in my studio is not so good so I took about 15 shots of this until I got one that could pass for acceptable.
Anyway...the base of this is SU! Sahara Sand (not one of my favs but worked for this...could probably have used Kraft also) and a layer of Pretty in Pink with two of the corners rounded. This opens on the right side. OK, now for the super fast magic...
Trim down the Sugardrop paper (yea, the branch pattern is already on the paper!), glue dot some of my new favs, Beaded Daisies (yea, the little shimmery bead is already attached for you) right onto the branches, stamp your greeting from the All Occasions Messages set in Palette Burnt Umber right onto the paper...punch two little holes, thread your pink/light pink reversible satin ribbon (so silky!) through the holes, stick it all together and VOILA! I made this a Get Well card but it could be a sympathy card, a thinking of you card, a friend card...virtually anything!
So there you have it. A 5 minute beauty. The best part (I think) is that you get the shimmeriness from the beaded daisies with no mess of glitter, no waiting for Stickles to dry and no paint brushes! And, in case you're wondering, the daisies come in packs of 30 by color...pink, white, blue and yellow.
I'll be back again soon. Monday the design team has a challenge so be sure to check in here and on all of their blogs. I'll probably be back again before then though. I've missed all my friends in Blogland. :)
Have a great night! Thanks for stopping by!
