Well, this is my last entry for the challenge over at the Paper Variety. This card was pretty fast to make, but I am super happy with how it turned out. The embellishment was in a variety pack of Jolee's establishments that I found on a recent trip to Micheal's.
For this card I picked out three embossing folders and three solid papers with white cores. I embossed each one with a different folder, and then I trimmed it to fit my card base (which is 5.25" x 5.25"). To make it easier to adhere, since I wanted the add the piece with foam dots, I mounted the embossed pieces on cardstock square that was approximately 4.75" x 4.75". The finished embossed piece is 5.0" x 5.0".
I added the Offray Ombre Ribbon. I then mounted the finished piece on my card with foam dots. I added the Jolee's embellishment and the Thickers Alphabet Stickers - Jewelry Box in Cocoa.
This was the kind of easy card that I needed to complete tonight. I just got home from the funeral of a very dear family friend and teacher of mine. It was an emotional day. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to have loved and lost this wonderful person rather than to never have known him. RIP~ Jimmy. You will be missed.
I am a wife, daughter, step-mom, grandma, granddaughter, niece, auntie, daughter-in-law, cousin, sister-in-law, friend, co-worker, and much more to many people. But if I can only live up to being the kind of person my dogs think that I am. They love me unconditionally. They laugh at all of my jokes, and they are always happy to see me no matter how bad my hair, makeup or clothes look. They love everything I cook, and the don't mind when I snuggle my cold feet against them on a winter's night. My husband and family love me just as much, but my dogs never see the bad in me. I guess that is why people love animals so much. When I am not being everything to my family or working my 12 - 14 hour shifts at work, I enjoy scrapbooking and crafting. I spend way too much time on my scrapbook lists online! Wanna know more? You'll have to ask!
