Minty Ferns

Good morning, Friends! It's Friday! This is going to be my mantra once again - lol! I have a meeting at school today. It's a short one so that is ok and then I can come back home. I know I will have time to work in my room next week. It just seems so crazy early to be going back to school! There is a biking camp that Nick wanted to go to next week. Instead, the biking team is going up for the weekend for a special clinic. He is excited about that! Time to get all the clothes washed and ready for school!

Today's card was one that I did for a recent swap I was in. I am in love with the Mint Macaron color and love to try out many different color combinations! This one is pretty simple!

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • On a slightly smaller piece of Crumb Cake, stamp the Hardwood background stamp using Crumb Cake (I inked the background stamp with Crumb Cake using a sponge and then lightly tapped random areas with my finger tips)
  • Adhere panel to card base
  • Cut the label shape from Very Vanilla using the Lots of Labels framelits and then cut one end off to create the flat edge (the top)
  • Stamp the greeting from Butterfly Basics onto the shape using Momento ink
  • Stamp the fern image using Mint Macaron being sure to stamp several times without re-inking
  • Tie a piece of linen thread around the panel and then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Punch a butterfly from vellum using the Bitty Butterfly punch and adhere to card with a glue dot
  • Add a pearl to butterfly and two smaller pearls to vanilla panel
Love the way this one turned out! The Create with Connie and Mary mini edition is almost over! Did you get to see all the wonderful ideas that were shared? Be sure to visit the site to get more details and to sign up! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
