Thankfully I was able to spend some time with friends yesterday. Everyone gathered at my house and here is just one of the projects we created. It's simple, based on classic colors, and fun with pennants and butterflies.
Beginning with Very Vanilla card stock, print papers from the "ever overflowing scrap drawer" were added. I'm loving those polka dots! The Large Lace Border Punch made a beautiful cut pattern for the middle. I'll be featuring that punch in many a future project. (You can see a more detailed image about this punch via the link.) Basic Black is just one of the many gorgeous colors this 5/8 inch satin ribbon is available in. It ties wonderfully - here I added a white button with a Natural Linen Thread .
My sentiment is from a sweet new set ... Pennant Parade! The words fit perfectly on the Jewelry Tag Punch. The pennants are First Edition paper - a classic newspaper print. I simply punched them out with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch. There are two shapes in this punch but here I chose to keep my lines clean and simple. Butterflies are cut with Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die (which dry embosses the shape while it cuts). Finally, every butterfly needs a rhinestone, of course.
So happy you could stop by - I'll be back soon with more to share. I have so much to show you!
