I will be seeing this friend of mine at the Expo and I thought it would be the perfect occasion to make a card for her. I started by taking a piece of Kraft paper from my stash and using it as the base of the card. Then I took four different patterned papers from the Cosmo Cricket Upcycle Mini Deck and inked them with Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Then I machine sewed my squares of patterned paper in a wonky, zig zag fashion. I let all the imperfections be as it is generally my motto that imperfection is interesting and beautiful.
I took some seam binding and scrunched it up and adhered it with some glue dots. Then I took a brad from the My Mind's Eye Lost and Found line and put it in the center of my scrunched "flower." I used another glue dot to adhere the butterfly to the side of the "flower," and added a paper doily cut in half from my stash. I used the Martha Stewart Large Double Arches Punch to punch a border strip in another piece of patterned paper from the Upcycle Mini Deck.
Lastly, I took a label sticker from my stash and used My Little Shoebox's Mini Alphas to make the sentiment (love those alphas!).
I really hope you'll be inspired to join us for this Wings challenge. If you do decide to participate, please have your creations linked up before 11:59 EST tonight (April 30th). Thanks for looking!
