Screen Card using Hello Honey & Hopeful Thoughts

Tuesday 19 August 2014

One of the projects I have for you this week is a screen card I made a few weeks ago. I had a lovely 3 days visiting my grandma and aunties in Utrecht (Holland) and I wanted to say Thank You for their hospitality. 

I CASED this card (copy and share everything) from a fellow Pinkie called Linda Parker - click here to see some of her designs on her youtube channel.

I chose Hello Honey for this card as its such a warm colour and I wanted my card to brighten her day. I used the Hopeful Thoughts Stamp Set as one of the stamps is perfect for the background. I combined this with punched out butterflies adorned beautiful with rhinestone jewels for a bit of glamour. 

I also distresssed the edges with the Stampin' Distress Tool. (In the next few weeks I am going to be doing a feature on all of my favourite Stampin' Up Tools )

When I arrived at my Grandma's house in July I was really touched to see that the card in a box I had sent to her for her Birthday in April was still on display (if you haven't seen a card in a box before, make sure you subscribe to my blog as I am planning on making an extra special version for a birthday in October).

This card doesn't fit in a standard envelope so I made one using cordinating designer series paper and the envelope punch board. The envelope punch board is perfect for those occasions where you spent ages making a card only to find you don't have an envelope that fits!

I would love it if you could leave a comment to let me know what you think about this card and also any ideas you have for any other colour combinations.

Here is a list of the other supplies I have used to create projects - if you click on the pictures, it will take you to my online shop!
