Card Recognition

Friday, July 8, 2011

thanks-thank you-thanks




I inked up the PTI In Bloom impression plate last week while playing around with it and loved the look it has when you spritz it with water before embossing it... Then it sat on the space once known as my craft desk while I couldn't figure out what I was going to make with it.  One of the other ones I was working on turned into my birthday card blog hop card, which is still accepting comments till Saturday if you want to be in the draw for the blog candy.  Since I got a fabulous card in the mail today from Savannah I knew I had to try to squeeze in the All Things Unity challenge before time ran out, so I added a Unity butterfly and some SRM stickers and now I'm going to send it to my grandmother as a thank you for her generous birthday present to me.  Because it's Friday I'll add this to the Friends with Flair fun.


Materials: Unity Life Is Fabulous butterfly, PTI In Bloom impression plate, SRM stickers, PTI double sided banner die, Little Yellow Bicycle lace sticker,  vellum, Tim Holtz Distress ink fired brick, water color paper, black card stock, PTI kraft card stock, Recollections rhinestone, Versafie black ink
