Hello there! It’s been so long I can hardly believe it. I made a New Year’s resolution to get back into my crafting, so here I am. I’ve missed it immensely. It really felt good to sit down at the old crafting table and make something. But it’s been so long, I didn’t even know where to start.
After sifting through some of my stash, I decided to limit myself to one stamp set and ONLY paper scraps. No full sheets of paper – just bits and pieces. And let me tell you, I could probably make cards for a year or more without running out of paper scraps! That really helped to keep me on track. I decided to make two cards – one feminine and one masculine – and this is what I ended up with.The stamp set is the Close To My Heart January Stamp of the Month: Cross-stitch Wishes. It is embellished with a little skirt bottom, some polka dot washi tape, and a bit of ribbon. A little stitching around the edge ties in nicely with the whole theme.
I really love the stitched arrows that are stamped on the base of the card. A few wood and metal accents were added to help out with the masculine look, but I still managed to sneak in a gem (at least it’s navy blue!).
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peak. Hopefully I’ll be back soon with something new. Until then, happy crafting!
