Ok, let's get the technical mumbo jumbo out of the way. I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
1. Cardz TV: Make a card, layout, or craft project for Mother's day
2. Little Scrap Pieces: It's a bug's life
3. 3 Girl Jam: Anything goes with Ribbon
Ok, this card was actually kind of an experiment. I saw a card on the web that is very similar to this one. It appears to be a card that was done at a Stampin' up retreat (http://stampndesignstore.blogspot.com/2011/03/butterfly-bee-lady-bug-cards.html). I could have paid for the template, but figured it would be easy enough to figure out. Which, after some thought, it really wasn't that hard to figure out. So, here is the card:
AS you can see, this card is simply shapes. The base is three 4" circles welded together with a 2 inch circle welded to the top of the center circle. The two outer circles are folded back on each other and adhered to itself. I added the black half circle so that the wording couldn't be seen peeking through from the inside. I then cut a small wedge out of the circles to represent the opening of the wings. I printed the sentiment out on the computer and adhered to center circle.
I think it needs a little refinement and definitely more buttons. Oh, well, there's always next time.
Hope you like it.
- I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.
