Priceless

I love this card-I got a chance to try lots of fun little techniques! I made this card for a friend, using my July Counterfeit Kit and one of {ippity}'s newest stamp sets, Flowers + Friends + Priceless. I also made another one of Vicky's adorable little envelopes-I adjusted the scale to make it smaller to fit on the front of my card. I also included a little "something special" inside the envelope-a tiny tag with a cute little message.
This was also my first time embellishing crepe paper for a project. I trimmed the bottom edge with pinking shears, then used {ippity}'s Dots for Sure stamp to stamp teal polka dots. I then machine-stitched it to the front of my card. So easy, and I love the result! I will definitely use this technique on other projects.


I am entering this card in the current All Things Unity challenge-Wrap it Up. I used three kinds of twine and also used them three different ways. First, I tied on some buttons. Second, I used it as a clasp for my mini envie. Finally, I tried a new technique: I swirled it around on a round glue dot to create the center for my large yellow flower. I then surrounded the twine with a row of tiny gems.

Thanks for stopping by today-hope to have some more fun projects for you later this week!
