WE INTERRUPT THIS CRAFT BLOG

to bring you a card!...as most know...i've never claimed to be a cardmaker...but it seems that the past couple of times i tried to work on projects...i ended up with cards...weird...i know...but just had to go with the creative flow!...since i was pretty darn proud of how this one turned out...i thought i'd force you to look at share...

 
for my card base...i started with a 4" inch by 8" piece of cardstock and scored it in half...cut my pattered paper at 3 3/4" inches by 3 3/4" inches...then took a 3 1/2" inch by 3 1/2" inch piece of cardstock and used my papertrey ink butterfly die for the cut out...just randomly placed...outlined with my signo white gel pen...rounded the edges of the patterend paper and kraft cardstock...then pop dotted each layer...got my doodle dot on...and yeppers...inked up the edges!...added a sentiment and tulle bow to finish it off!...

hope you like!...and now back to your regularly crafty blog that is already in progress....

Carrie,
I love this card! I saw it on the Circle MB but didn't comment! You might not think you're a cardmaker, but you definitely are! TFS

Oh, I love the detail! Those little dots in the corners and the "stitching" around the butterfly. Yummy!
I just made my first two cards EVER, and it it kind of addicting. Just watch yourself there, lass! :)

Yea... I have been hearing the ol "I'm not a card maker" gig for far too long now. You obviously ARE a card maker and a darn good one...so just admit it!!!

Gorgeous card! And it's funny, I just finished a chalkboard necklace with chalkholder and eraser without a piece of cardstock or rubberstamping or cricut anywhere lol.

For not being a card maker...It looks amazing. I love how you made it & I am a card maker.
