I've been 'playing' catch up over the last couple of days experimenting and trying as many of the techniques and ideas that the Stretch Your Stamps 2 online card class have been sharing and inspiring us with over the past 12 days! I'm still behind on some of the days, but when I saw Julie Ebersole's wreath hello card on Day 9, I just had to give it a go...
I used Uniko Studio Natures Treasures I and Background Builders: Vines for this card, along with my Avery Elle inks & the Mama Elephant 'hello' die.
It was a little tricky to cut the inside of the wreath out, but once I'd made a start it didn't take too long! I decided to mount my panel onto a card base with foam adhesive and the 'hello' is secures either end on the reverse of the panel and left hanging free! I'm super pleased with how it turned out and I can see myself making more of this type of card & replacing the die cut with a stamped sentiment.
Ahhhh, weekends how I love thee! Today is going to be spent relaxing & maybe a spot of creating, only 15 days until 'Bean Day', I need to make the most of it!! I'll be back tomorrow with the WINNERS and Top 3 from the Uniko Studio Challenge #12 'Anything Goes'. Until then, thank you for stopping by today :)
