Do you know what today is? It's JerzDay!! (lol) I don't think any of you sweet and meek crafters are into dramatic reality shows like Jersey Shore, are you? I know I am, but that's because I still have a little ghetto left in me from my upbringing in NY. Funny thing though, I didn't live in the ghetto. I lived in a nice area in downtown Manhattan. LOL!! Anyway, so tonight is episode 2 of the cast being in Italy and I can't wait. But this blog is not about them, it's about crafting, so let's talk PAPER!!!
Two days ago I posted a blog & video showing an altered baby picture frame that I made for someone at church, and I wanted to create a matching card.
My favorite part about the card is the double ruffle trim that I created using a single ruffle trim. It doesn't take a genius to figure out how to fold things and make them double, but when I had the bright idea to do this I felt so cool!! LOL. I had never seen that done before and I thought I'd share it with you. I didn't color my pregnant Greeting Farm stamp with copics this time though, I used Stampin' Up watercolor pencils and mineral spirits. I still have to work on my copic coloring, and I want to wait until my 2nd shipment arrives (they're taking forever!!). And by the way, I don't own this stamp set. It was stamped for me and sent in a RAK from my dear friend Sharon, earlier this year.
I hope you like this simple card and I challenge you to make something today using the color purple.
Thanks for stopping by.
