Let’s chat….I really like this card – I mean I REALLY like this card! I am excited for you to “take it all in” and see that it is basically the same as yesterday but a change of the stamp set…the DSP and PRESTO a new card with a totally different look!
It is my hopes that you can see that you do not need to reinvent the wheel each time you sit down to make a card! Literally, the longest part for me in making this card was to pick the stamp set and paper.
I have blogged before using this stamp set….to me, a great sentiment stamp set and great paper – BAM…you are good to go! Did you notice the little dapper denim heart? It is from the Owl Builder Punch – a quick and effective “add on” that adds the perfect touch!
Do you remember the blog post I did about my favorite paper? Well…this one honestly was not my 1st pick BUT once I saw it in person – LOVE IT….the colors are so yummy. I have a confession, I am not crazy about the stamp sets that coordinate with this paper but I LOVE the paper and I hope that you can see that even though certain parts of a “suite” might not be your style….go deeper and see if you can make them work in other ways like I did today.
On Saturday when Jeanie and I went to that “Shoe Box Swap” – we were amazed at how many people used Delightful Dijon…and I thought, I must give it a try. I do not know about you…but – I think it takes a while to get comfy with the in colors…and I am super happy with the end result – one classic card.
As I said yesterday – the envelope punch board is the BEST tool to make you look amazing! Having the ability to make a CA-ZILLION different sizes of envelopes and also like Sonny said yesterday, you can make bows as well!
One more look at this handsome…classic card – isn’t this sentiment wonderful. This card is going to a special someone that MADE MY DAY when I received a super cute, super sweet – card from her. You all know that I adore my animals and I admit, my heart is still heavy with Eddie. He truly was the best…I know we did the right thing but I do miss him – I am sooooooo used to him being by my side – ALL OF THE TIME.
When you go back and look at yesterdays card…you can clearly see the similarities. The only changes I made was I “tweaked” the width of the DSP Strips to make it work with the pattern of the paper. Little tweaks is all that you need!
I just had to share this picture with you… Milo is filling my heart. He adores me and I adore him. While we were gone, I did miss him – and our “jack of all trades” kept texting me telling me that he was great – all of the animals were great!
When we arrived home and when I walked in the door, he melted. He was sooooo excited to see me and it was like he needed to know that we were ok. The below picture is him CRASHING while I took a shower, he never left my side.
You can see his leg that he was shot. It bows out a bit but it does not seem to affect him – he has the heart and appreciation of the BIGGEST MOUNTAIN one could ever climb – truly a special boy~ I do still take him over to see Earlene…and she love it! This is truly a story of fate….I adore him and the JOY that he brings Earlene is amazing. She will often call me and say “How is our perfect dog today”?
Please pop back tomorrow as I will share with you ANOTHER version of this “formula” in a regular A-2 card…I know that you will love it but the main point that I want you to see and embrace is….find a “formula/layout” that makes you happy and just ROLL WITH IT!
