Two weeks ago I became a statistic………… coming down with the flu which I have never had before! I spent 5 days in bed (never done that before either) another 3 days feeling as weak as a kitten – even had to sit down for a rest after taking a shower! and now left with an irritating cough, but at least I am able to think straight now.
Occasionally I will write my posts in advance, particularly if I know I am going to be away for a few days but I really much prefer to write them either the day of or day before posting – it is much fresher and I feel more connected with you all that way. But since I did not know I was going to fall sick, I was not able to ‘prepare’ ~ so I have fallen behind.
Today’s card is another in my Sweet and Simple series where I have set myself a little challenge using a small amount of equipment and supplies – kind of like one of those cookery shows where you are given 3 or 4 ingredients and you have to turn it into a spectacular 4 course meal. Then you find the basics such as stock, herbs and spices etc are ‘pantry’ items and it turns out that the meal was made with a whole host of ‘hidden’ stuff we did not know about.
So the ‘pantry items’ for my challenge are going to be, adhesive, Stampin Trimmer, Bone folder and Paper-Piercing tool. I am going to attempt to create with 1 stamp set and some ink pads, 1 embellishment (other than paper or card) and one additional tool, probably a punch. Click here to see the first in the series.
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Berry Burst Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 5 3/8 x 2 1/8 Whisper White Card
Layer 2: 5 1/4 x 2 Picture Perfect Party DSP (I just love this paper stack)
Layer 3: 3 1/8 x 2 1/8 Whisper White Card
Layer 4: 3 x 2 Picture Perfect Party DSP – this is from the same sheet as layer 2 but I chose to use the other side for this layer.
Layer 5: 2 3/8 x 1 3/8 Silver Glimmer Paper
Layer 6 : 2 1/4 x 1 1/4 Whisper White Card
Ink Color: Berry Burst
The stamp set is also from the Picture Perfect Party suite from the 2018 Occasions catalog – called Picture Perfect Birthday, I used the ‘star stamp’ from the set to decorate the envelope and the inside.
The DSP has so many lovely colors to choose from for the embellishment – I chose to go with the Lemon Lime Twist 1/4 Ombre Ribbon.
I did not use any addition tools for this card so I think I have achieved my challenge with this one as well. 🙂
