Another Make-and-Take

The Computer Gods have been conspiring against me! I came away, all prepared with some updates stored on Blogger, but we've been unable to get our computer hooked up to the Internet. Apparently the laptop's modem has died. So here I am on the Resort's Reception computer! ($2.50 per 15 minutes, so I'm typing fast!!) Hopefully this will keep you going until I get back on Wednesday!

This was the second make-and-take at my Open House on the 1st January. I've used "Friendship Blooms" and "Lots of Thoughts". The colours are Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Ruby Red. I've stamped the flower on the top 2/3 of the card in Bashful Blue ink, and stamped the swirl on bottom 2/3 also in Bashful Blue ink. Then I've stamped a row of flowers in Certainly Celery ink on the Certainly Celery piece. I tore along the top edge of the Ruby Red cardstock, and attached it over the top of the Celery piece with SNAIL adhesive. I ran a piece of Wide Celery Grosgrain Ribbon over the top, and attached it behind with Sticky Strip. I tied a separate knot over the top. This gives you a knot that is easy to tie and can easily be positioned where you want it. It also uses less ribbon! The sentiment from “Lots of Thoughts” was inked in Bashful Blue ink, and then I inked the bottom sentiment only with my Ruby Red marker (the bashful blue is a light enough colour that you don't need to wipe any ink off). I stamped on Whisper White cardstock, and punched it out with the Tag Punch. I inked the row of 3 flowers in Celery ink, stamped off once onto scrap cardstock and then onto the tag. The tag has been attached with 2 Dimensionals.

  3. Love the card - boy, you sure are dedicated, stamping while on holiday! Even I draw the line there, usually!! LOL. Enjoy your holiday, and thanks for sharing the gorgeous card!
