Special Day

Hey there! Well, today's not a special day, but that's what this card says! It was a simple card put together with embossing templates and punches only! Yep, you read that right - only embossing templates and punches! It's Hump Day! I hope you all enjoy your day! We got more snow last evening and through the night. Winter is in full effect this season! So, here's how I made this card!

  1. Make an A2 card base.
  2. Emboss card front.
  3. Emboss orange cardstock.
  4. Cut out label on orange cardstock and adhere it to card front center with foam adhesive.
  5. Add ink to the orange label.
  6. Punch flower, distress and assemble with a circle punch, vintage button, and hand cut leaves.
  7. Round the corners.

Paper :: PTI - aqua mist, raspberry fizz, new leaf; Bazzill - orange
Ink :: Ranger - antique linen
Embellishments :: Making Memories - vintage button
Tools :: Sizzix - embossing folder; Provo Craft - cuttlebug; Marvy Uchida - flower punch; Creative Memories - circle punch; We R Memory Keepers - corner rounder

It's perfect and very beautiful, sometimes, you need to rest the stamps and play with other materials in your stash! Love that tiny flower center, looks like a crystal.
