Eleanor's Birthday

Today is my grandmother-in-law's birthday. She loves getting mail, especially hand made cards. She has a thing for crafts, so of course I made her a card. I used Inspired by Nature and the Spotlighting Technique. I stamped the flowers in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White. I then inked up a section of the flowers with my Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, and Old Olive markers and punched it out with my 1 1/4" Circle punch. I then punched a Rose Red circle in 1 3/8" and layered them. I lined my circle image up over the solid image and glued it down. I then took a piece of Rose Red cardstock and punched the edge with my Scalloped Edge punch. I used my piercing tool to pierce each scallop. I adhered some Old Olive 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon around it and adhered it behind the bottom section of my flower layer. I then took a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock to layer behind the top before adhering it to my Old Olive card. I made my husband write out the inside of the card and he was upset that I didn't stamp anything in the inside, but silly me didn't bring any sentiment stamps with me. Hopefully in February you'll start seeing some projects with new stuff!!! The new catalog comes out on Jan. 19th, but I can't order anything until at least Feb. 1st as we won't be able to receive mail until then. Thanks for bearing with me during this difficult time without my stamps!!
