However - disclaimer here - I HATE gardening. The 'fun in the sun' part there isn't really true (Oh, I DO, do it, but I pull weeds with my teeth clenched!) . So if you can please imagine when you look at my card that I'm thinking about walking around a Botannical Garden for the 'fun' part - rather than pulling weeds in my own - I'd appreciate that - thank you :0)
I really wanted this card to be very, very soft. Like petals!
I opted for a clear card base to get a little extra shimmer into the design - also I thought about the "clear days" of summer (yes really :0)!
The floral embellishment backing is stamped with PTI's "Dot Spot" and then cut out with a scalloped circle from Spellbinders.
Here is one more shot of what the card looks like completely closed.
My family was so full of teasing jokes about this - I was asked why, if I was going to go to all this trouble over a card I was trying to make it invisible ...
It's my first shot at a clear card :0) Heeeee! So cute of them :0)!
Have a beautiful day Peeps! Thanks for stopping in!!
Blessings to you!
P.S. In case you wondered - those pins are regular dress making pins with beads threaded onto them. I would LOVE to be able to purchase hat pins - but my "LSS" (two hours away) doesn't carry them - so this IS about being creative - isn't it? :0)
