My card today features my NBUS Spellbinders Jeans Pocket die. I am ashamed to tell you just how long I have owned this die and had not even opened the package yet!
I have thrown caution to the wind and made quite a colourful card today. As much as I love colourful cards, choosing vivid shades does not come naturally to me. Once I get started, I am always happy with the colour though!
I cut the jeans pocket out of some lightly embossed (with a sort of striped pattern) denim coloured card. The card has a sort of sateen sheen and is quite pretty. Because it a bit delicate, I cut the die again from heavy weight black card and glued the sateen card to it.
I used some leafy cluster dies and layered a bunch of paper flowers with them. Luckily I had some blue brads, as well as some teensy, orange button brads, so I was able to alternate the colours of the layers. I need to make an awful lot of flower cards as I have so many paper flowers stockpiled from when they were in style, many, many years ago!
The DP is all from the My Minds Eye, My Girl 6x6 paper pad. I also used a second NBUS item, the ombre peach coloured, Recollections canvas die cut. (just behind the flowers). It was actually too tall for my card, so I cut it in half and then trimmed about 1/2 inch or so from each middle edge
Most of the flowers and the butterflies were from Michaels many years ago. I tore the diamond off the turquoise one and layered the white butterfly overtop.
The leaves were all cut from snippets. I cut up the entire green snippet and have two leafy branches leftover for another project. This was a fun card to make, no stress at all and very relaxing. I am looking forward to making a couple more for my card box.
