Wasabi Wings

Good morning, Friends! I am finally back to posting again. We had some technical difficulties to deal with but I think that they are taken care of now. At least I hope so! I am truly done with my Christmas shopping - yea!! Now to wrap and enjoy the last few days remaining until Christmas! Nick has finished up his last quarter requirements and is waiting for break to start. I still can't believe how fast time has gone!!

Today's card was one that I did with my stamp club/mystery hostess workshop on Monday. I tried to stay away from Christmas cards at this workshop. I hadn't planned on going in a 'spring' direction either but I still liked how this one turned out! I took a piece of Confetti White card stock that was cut down and stamped the greeting from Just Believe in Wild Wasabi, then glued it to a piece of Wild Wasabi and the popped it up on a card base of Confetti White. Then I punched a circle from Confetti White with the 2 1/2" circle punch and stamps the leafy branch image from the same set in Wild Wasabi several times (and some without re-inking). I attached this to a piece of Wild Wasabi that I had cut with the Perfect Pennants die and then popped it up on the card. The final touch was to add a butterfly that I had die cut from Blushing Bride with the Beautiful Wings sizzlet. I put a mini brad in the middle and used a glue dot to attach it to the card. Very soft and simple! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
