Left over Masculine Card


Well our nice hot weather was short-lived! Saturday was cool, cloudy with rain off and on with a chance of a thunderstorm…which never happened….so we stayed home. Sunday started out rainy; then cloudy and threatening rain for the rest of the day but we headed out to Rondeau for a walk through the bush anyway. Today is a beautiful sunny day – of course, the weekend is over so why not have sun. I was at the church making comfort quilts that go to those in our community facing life-threatening illnesses or for kids diagnosed with cancer. I feel its important to give back to the community. All the material is donated so all we pay for is the thread we use. We do fund raisers to buy the batting as no one donates that.

Today’s card was made from the left over parts from the card I posted on Friday. I like this one even better. 


I combined the green and the brown to make another masculine card but used only one swirl (Memory Box die). I had this card base with the nice swirl background and decided not to cover it up with more paper and instead just glued the die cut swirl on top. Then I placed it in my Tim H. card positioner and stamped the sentiment. The only trick using this die is to keep track of those small pieces that have to fit in to the negative spots. It needed something else but I wasn’t sure what I wanted and then I spied this die cut ‘thing’ and decided it looked like a dandelion gone to seed and used it. I think this is also a Memory Box die but I borrowed it from a friend and die cut a couple extras so I’m not sure of the manufacturer.  

That’s all for a lovely sunny Monday, June 11, 2018.

Cheers
