My Own Little Bit of Spring
Well..Winter won't leave us...and Spring just won't come to Long Island...so I am brnging a bit of Springtime to myself!
I have always had a habit of browsing thru books..web sites...cookbooks.. etc...and when I find something that interests me..I re-vamp it..switch things up...change it around and make it my own...all lots of fun..but there is one drawback..nothing has a recipe..nothing is written down..nothing has directions...or a template or pattern...and therefore..I can never tell someone exactly how to make or do what I made or did!....because its all in my head!
and so...That's what I did with this flower pot card...I browsed around...got the basic idea..here..there and everywhere....and then did my own thing!
What I can tell you is that I embossed the actual cardstock that the flower pot is made from using 2 different CB folders..(no layers of embossed cs over flower pot)
Each flower is made from 4 layers:
2 layers of vellum (one embossed..and the bottom most vellum flower layer is plain) and one layer of CB embossed white cs. The flower centers are also CB embossed cs. I alternated..vellum/cs/vellum/cs
The back most flower is adhered with a reg glue dot
The 2 in front (either side) are on 3-D glue dots..(love those chunky 3-D dots)
The edge of the flower pot was punched with the SU scalloped border punch
The flower topped blank card slips into the flower pot.
I hestiate to tell you that this is YET ANOTHER white on white card for Ruth's swap!
Yes..yes...yes...I (or should i say WE...as in Sue and I) are STILL at it!..We are truly addicted to that swap..and last night..we both signed on for spot #7...
Some may think that we need professional "help" for our ridiculous insane addiction to the white on white cards.....but the truth is..we are having so much fun with this swap...each white on white I've shared with you on my blog was a 6 card swap..so I've made 6 of each...and enjoyed making all 42 cards enormously!
As always..a big thank you to Ruth..her swap has been s much fun!
