My card is for Just Us Girls: A flap Card
Stampin' Sisters in Christ: A card that uses a peaceful image or verse
Pixie Dust: Flowers & Buttons
I Started with a very pretty aqua blue and white striped paper from My Minds Eye. The paper is aged with yellows and browns. It was very light weight so I adhered it to the white cardstock on one side. The sentiment just wasnt working on the outside of my flap so I put it on the inside. I chose the sentiment based on the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge based on Psalm 29:11. I cut it out with the # 10 nestie. I had a very pretty piece of Make and Create paper with these pretty flowers that were just to pale to show up. I scanned and printed a couple of copies, that I watercolored and cut out. I used one flower and bud on the sentiment. I also cut a pocket and used the MS iron fence border punch for a decorative edge and added some little stickle dots to it. I created the pocket to put a note and a little treasure in. I have created this with one of the ladies in my Womens Ministry in mind. On the outside I also punched the edge with the iron works. I then punched two holes to run the ribbon thru. Next I sewed on the button to tie the ribbon around. Lastly I added some stickles all around the edges, centers and stamens of my flowers to give them some sparkle and the attached two layers one directly onto the card and the other foam dotted on top of it to create more dimension.
