Happy Whip-it Wednesday! This is the day that I post a project that is fast to "whip" out. I'm posting this card as a special request from my customer and fellow passionate paper crafter Kathy G. I was chatting with her on the phone today and she told me she could not stop thinking about this card ever since I showed it to her on Saturday at Carol M.'s stamp party. She wanted the recipe so I thought I would post it for everyone.
I love, love, LOVE this Something Lacy background stamp from the Occasions Catalog! You can order yours here. So elegant! Here I have stamped it in Sahara Sand ink and the butterfly is cut from Crumb Cake card stock with the amazing Butterflies Thinlits Dies. I tried Sahara Sand ink with Sahara Sand card stock and it just did not work with the brown of the burlap.
I have seen a lot of burlap and lace combined for wedding decorations so I wanted to give it a try. I used the liquid glue to attach the burlap to the card and the lace to the burlap. The Vanilla seam binding is just tied on around the whole card – not glued.
A quick peek at the inside of the card. Again I used Sahara Sand ink – I wanted a light, soft look.
I created this card at the end of the December for a card swap with my Stampfield Stars team and some other demonstrator friends. A special Thank You to my Breakfast Club stampers who helped me decide which colors to go with at the December Breakfast Club.
Here is our Whip-it Wednesday mascot – Bella the Whippet. You can see why I like Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake – they match her beautiful fawn brindle coloring! Thanks for stopping by! Create something beautiful and give it away to someone special!
