I am so excited to be blogging today and on top of that, I get to share a card I made recently!
Today’s card uses some of the brand new products in the Pretty Pink Posh Shop. I was able to sneak in some crafty time recently and boy, did I have fun! With the busyness of running the day-to-day things in the shop, I don’t often get to craft, but when I do, I remember why I started doing what I do. Give me a few days, Netflix, coffee and stamp supplies and I’m one happy girl!
When I haven’t crafted in a while (ahem, months), it usually takes a few hours to get the creativity going, but the first card I make usually is my favorite from the bunch. This card was the first card I made in the most recent craft session and I just love how it turned out.
I started off by using the Scallop Circles as my focal point and paired it with the birdie trio from the Birdie Friends set. This set is my current go-to because you can use it for so many occasions and I really put a lot of thought into the elements and sentiments. I went the route of creating a mini scene and added the mini pink flowers from the Spring Flowers Mix.
To “frame” the mini scene, I paired the larger Scallop Square and made a shaker using my favorite Sparkling Clear Mix and added some of the Sparkling Clear Seed Beads. That little addition really adds to the shaker element, since those beads are really small and delicate.
For the last finishing touch, I added two bows from the Twine and Bows die set using some silver glitter cardstock. It’s amazing how just this little addition really made the card feel and look complete. Plus, die cutting it from the glitter cardstock made the card even more special.
