About Me

My photo

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.

Card Box Side 2A

AS I sat staring at what will soon become my card organization box and pondered over the next side, I realized that for me, it would be easier to split the long side into 2 5x5" sections. So, here is the first section of the second side:
The base layer is a 5" x 5" black card stock square. I then hopped on the computer and positioned the Beautiful digital stamp in the corner so that it could seen when folded back. I then cut the cardstock to measure 4.75" x 9.5". I folded it in half and then folded the corner down to reveal the stamp. I adhered the corner down with double sided tape. Next I printed out the Flower stamp (the freebie from bugaboo this week) and colored it in shades of yellow. I adhered it to the inner right hand side of the card. Then I folded the right flap over and adhered it down. I added some gold mosaic tiles  and a Martha Stewart butterfly punch. I think it turned out "beautifully."
