Get Well Soon

Hey Bleeps! How was your Monday? Mine was very exhausting. I was so tired. So, I did what I thought best, napped! :) I feel a lot better now, but will make sure tomorrow morning when I arrive to work that I do not miss my morning green tea. Obviously, that one cup of tea mattered more to me than I knew.

Today, I created a card featuring some fun Graphic 45 embellishments. In honor of my tea mishap, I decided to use the envelope as a tea bag holder, perfect for friends or loved ones who are a bit under the weather.

I'll try to be back tomorrow with another video. Any suggestions on projects, techniques or products you'd like to see? I haven't decided just yet, so I thought I'd ask you all if you are interested in seeing something in particular. If I can't do it for tomorrow's video, then I'll make sure to add it to the list for next week!

  1. Stamp polka dotted background on kraft A2 card base with black ink.
  2. Adhere envelope at an angle on rust cardstock block.
  3. Tie twine around block, then adhere to card front.
  4. Add button treatments.
  5. Stamp sentiment on cream cardstock strip, then adhere to card front.

Stamps :: DeNami Design - polka dot background; Papertrey Ink - tea for two
Ink :: Tsukineko - memento tuxedo black
Cardstock :: Papertrey Ink - kraft, vintage cream, terracotta tile
Embellishments :: Graphic 45 - envelope tags, chipboard buttons; Papertrey Ink - terracotta tile, true black buttons; Craft Supply - twill tape

Have a good day! Thanks for stopping by!

Morning, Miss Ashley - - I love this card with that plain piece of Terracotta Tile giving it some pop...and that envelope is so fancy! I need to get crackin' on more Halloween stuff...been jonesin' to work with the Graphic 45 set....but got caught up in Christmas cards....and skipped a holiday - LOL That twill tape has some great wide ridges in it too.

Wow, that card is beautiful Ashley! I would really like to see you make a card using the papertrey impressions. I have some, but I'm scared to use them, LOL!
