I created my first card last week and have been thinking that I wanted to have another go with a different card to case.
So, first I figured out that I wanted to use the 2011 Holiday Ornaments because I had this vision that I could turn the ornament into a "tulip" like flower. After I stamped the ornament and clear embossed it, I cut it out sort of along the center to create the two outer petals of the tulip. The with some glossy accents I stuck the petals on and then trimmed it down to my liking. Not a perfect tulip, but I like the way it looks.
With that done, I decided I would CASE (Copy and Share Everything) Debbie Olson, you can find her card here. I loved looking through her blog! Here's a picture of her card.
She did some sewing and coloring with Copic Markers, but I stuck with straight stamping and using a white colored pencil to do my sewing...I'm not good with needles or thread of any kind.
Here's the card I created and you could maybe use it even for Christmas...yikes it has even warmed up and I'm saying that word. Although I think I'm going to use it for Mothers day.
