Embracing Life

Hello everyone! I am so sorry it has taken me so long to post! I had posted all my newest creations and I haven't had any time to get back to stamping more so I took a little rest. Last Monday we had a snow day! I could hardly believe it! We haven't had a snow day in 20 years!!! I almost didn't believe it. It had snowed Sunday evening but nothing more than usual. The reason they called school off was because the forecast was for six to eight more inches on Monday. Well, guess what?! They called school off and Monday morning the sun came out and melted most everything! All that to say that I used my unexpected day off to make some cards and do a little project. I even got to surf the internet for other cards and projects to copy. Something I haven't been able to do in a long time!

Today's card is one that I saw on a blog. she used the same colors and stamps. I did change it up a bit by adding a few brads and some sponging and speckling. The thing that makes this card a little unique is its closure. I took my slit punch and slid it in as far as it would go and punched. That's what keeps this card closed. I made my card base 4 1/4" x 11" and folded that in half. Then I cut 2 3/4" off one end (the part where the polka dotted paper is). My main image is glued half-way on the printed paper but the other end fits into the slit. I just thought that the layout was very clever! I may have to try this at stamp club on Monday!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
