A Stash Buster Card



Another beautiful day here in Ontario….so glad the humidity is down to a near normal level. Yesterday was another 26.5km bike ride so today is taking it easy day. I did a bit of quilting but it was too hot in my sewing room so I went down to the lower studio and did some scrapbooking. I talked Joe into turning the A/C off and opening the windows after lunch even though it’s still in the mid 80’s outside. There is a lovely breeze blowing and I really wanted to get some fresh air in the house. Right now it is starting to cloud up and we could be in for another thunderstorm.

Today’s card is another one that used up some of the stash and yet it doesn’t look like a stash buster card.


The bottom striped piece is all one piece and I ran it through an embossing folder to give it even more dimension. The top piece is just a left over piece that matched the thin stripes in the bottom piece. I stamped and embossed the circle with some shiny light blue embossing powder. This is a reverse stamp so the butterfly and flowers show up after the background is stamped. A second white circle was then die cut and the blue one glued on top. A blue ribbon was glued to the seam of the two papers and a bow of the same ribbon was added to the circles. The sentiment and silver strip are peel-offs.

That’s all for a lovely Friday. Tomorrow is supposed to be another nice day and we may take in the Art in the Park at Erieau. Have a great weekend everyone.

Cheers
Violet
