Shoebox Club Card 0713

Good morning, Friends! Are you all ready for a great weekend? I hope ours is quiet and relaxing. There is nothing planned so that is looking good! It is supposed to rain today and that would be great as it is really humid around here! Ugh! Our air conditioner just doesn't work at all with the humidity. I got a lot of laundry done yesterday so I can focus on stamping today - I hope!! Yesterday I finally got my molds for the Simply Pressed Clay that Stampin' Up! sells! I was so excited to give it a try and spent most of the afternoon making buttons and blossoms! It was so much fun! Now I have them ready for a project whenever I might want to use one! Can't wait to show you all!

Today's card was a total copy of Connie Babbert. She did her card for this week's Create with Connie and Mary challenge and I just loved everything about it! So I decided to use it for the monthly shoebox club that I am in. And I think those ladies loved it, too! I did have to substitute a few things but it is pretty much a copy! Here are the card details:

  • Cut two pieces of Pear Pizzazz card stock using the Oval Accent die
  • Run one of those pieces through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots TIEF and score the other towards the top
  • Put Sticky Strip above the scored line and adhere to embossed piece then use paper trimmer to trim a little off the bottom so that the card will stand
  • Us Oval framelits to cut an oval from Whisper White
  • Stamp greeting from Four You in Melon Mambo onto oval and adhere to card
  • Stamp flower image from Flower Shop in Daffodil Delight two times onto Whisper White and punch out with Pansy punch
  • Pop one flower up onto card
  • Punch flower from Melon Mambo using Blossom punch and pop up onto card
  • Pop other yellow flower onto the blossom punch
  • Punch two flower centers from Gingham Garden designer paper using itty bitty punch pack, adhere to flower centers and add rhinestones
  • Cut two strips of Gingham Garden designer paper and flag the ends
  • Tuck these behind the flowers
There you have it! Pretty simple and oh so cute! Thanks, Connie! And thank you for stopping by! Have a fantastic day!
