hello Gorgeous

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday to you! They sure roll around fast, don’t they?! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m thrilled to be on the Eyelet Outlet Blog today with a fun DT inspiration project and something a little different than the last few projects I’ve posted! My last several cards were created with the new quarantined-inspired brads in the store and were a series of clean and simple cards paying tribute to our frontline healthcare workers. It’s almost the middle of March so I thought a pretty Spring-themed friendship card was in order so I used some fun epoxy flowers embellished with clear bling on the front and some lovely purple check washi tape on the inside!

I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base (my favorite, can you tell?!) and a strip from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I layered the white strip on a slightly larger strip of CutCardStock Granny Smith cardstock and adhered some leftover negative-space circles that I’ve had on my desk for several months. These circles were layered on pink cardstock and they were so pretty I didn’t want to throw them away – and I figured if I left them out on my desk I’d find a use for them sooner rather than later! SCORE! I adhered an Epoxy Flower to the center of each circle and then a Clear Jewel to the center of each flower. I stamped the sentiment in purple ink and that completed the front of this super simple card.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of white cardstock layered on a piece of green cardstock with an added strip of Purple Checked Washi Tape. I adhered the layered strip to the left side of the inside panel, stamped the inside sentiment in purple ink and layered the panel on green cardstock.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! I can’t believe how I’m navigating toward CAS these days. Less is definitely more!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
