Hi crafty friends! Jeanne here back with this fun handmade card that I created using the beautiful collection from Prima Marketing called “My Sweet”, which I absolutely love! Here is how I created this project for this week! Come see!
How I began with My Sweet Collection
This card measures 5x7, I began by cutting a piece of ivory colored card stock for the base. Then, chose which pattern paper from the My Sweet 12x12 paper pad I received from Fotobella to play with this month! I decided I wanted a spool to be the focal point of the card. I remembered that I have some laces/trims stored on some spool tags. So that made it easy but you can download something similar from Pinterest such as these.
I took the spool template and traced it onto the selected pattern paper. Once I cut it out after tracing it, I inked the edges using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Then using some foam tape, I adhered it to the base. Now the fun begins which is to build up the rest of the card . So to start I picked out one of the super cute 3x4 journaling cards and ephemera from the My Sweet collection and inked up all of the edges of those as well.
Once I adhered those, I added flowers, 2 pieces of the chipboard stickers “ I Bloom For You” sentiment and vintage woman. Also I added a couple of buttons which are a part of the My Sweet collection too, and I had a tiny wooden spool in my stash I put some white quilt thread on it and added it on top of the flowers. Lastly I added one of the Say It In Crystals. Onto the inside, I added a piece of white card stock to add your personal note and added the beautiful sentiment which is another ephemera.
Well I hope you all like what I created this week and got a little inspired by it. Thank you for reading my post and I hope you will come back and see the rest of the Fotobella design team share their crafty projects with you! See Ya in June!!
