Mother's Day special for me and I wanted to send them a card to show
my appreciation. When I saw this sentiment on Create with TLC Happy Tuesday
I knew it would be just perfect. It just goes to show you that you don't need
stamps to make your own cards. Free digi stamps are all over the web and
this wonderful site is one great example of that.
I took 1/2" strips of paper scraps and adhered them
diagonally to a piece of cardstock.
I ran double-stick tape horizontally on the cardstock,
about four pieces, rather than having to adhere each strip individually.
When I knew the piece was large enough, I cut it down to
5-1/2 x 2-1/4." By doing it this way, you are assured of
You have to look closely to see it, but I embossed the top and bottom of the
card base with a border embossing folder.
Then I adhered the colored piece in the middle.
I ran a piece of sheer lavender ribbon around the card twice for some
added interest, finishing in the front.
I printed the sentiment on my computer, then cut in out with a
Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three.
It seemed to have the same flourishes as on the embossing.
And there you have it!
