Aloha, I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. I've been busy crafting while it is still to hot for me outside - good excuse!
Yesterday I started this project and it was the first time I ever have used a template! I know, I know, a lot of you probably use them all the time, but me being the happy "card" maker had never ventured in that direction! Well, I decided I need to keep expanding my horizons with my paper crafting and bought a template pack from Oriental Traders. I receive their catalog and was really intrigued. So here is my FIRST attempt!
All of the flowers and flourishes were cut with SCAL, I added some punched leaves and also SCAL file ones, touches of Stickels and rhinestones for some pizzaz and topped it off with a bow. It's a little rough around the edges, and some practice will help a lot! It sure was fun and now I wonder why I waited so long to try this!!! I'm anxious to get started on the next one!
