This is another card from that ancient Daisy D 12x12 card making pad They have a heavy weight card base, oval diecuts, strips of patterned paper in different widths and matching teensy treat boxes. The card bases themselves are already printed with a pattern. I must say they are handy to use.
As part of my commitment to use up my older stash, I decided to get them all made up. I had been avoiding that, as I have always thought they are a bit old lady looking. But...they were perfect to take to the lake as everything was there to make simple cards.
The lilac sentiment mat is a left over from the purple series of cards I made for my girlfriend. The butterfly was part of that series as well...good to use up those pesky little leftover bits of a package...now the packet can be thrown away and that is a good thing!
I managed to find a snippet of a pale pink pompom style ribbon that I tucked under the gingham strip.
A few pearl gems, and I was done!
Sorry the photo is so out of focus...here is a close up to show you it is my lack of photography skills... not my stamping.
****************This is card #31 of 50. I am on a consumables spending freeze until I have made 50 cards (Sook Wang tape and heavy weight card stock are exempt).***************
If you remember my post Card 29, where I waffled about some changes...well here they are...
I added 3 diamonds and pink circles behind the buttons as I found the view through the buttonholes too distracting.
