I created a birthday card with a Green theme ":) So I guess it would be perfect for a boy, but girls love green too so that worked out great! I wanted to share something with you today. I had an email from a company that asked me a few questions about my Crafting/creative process, among a few other questions. Honestly, I think every time I enter my craft room I have a different intention....Quick, simple, fun, fussy, artistic, necessity, and the list goes on. So just for fun I thought I'd share my process on this card.
Next I got out a paper pad from Basic Grey that had a few shades of green and just picked three of my favorites. Next I cut the scallop and circle and stamped the sentiment and then matted them on the lime polka dot paper. But something didn't look right. I originally had a lime green color instead of the white I ultimately chose. But this is why some cards usually take a little longer that 15 minutes :)
With the white card stock I could color in the image and get a much more clean look. Lastly, I added a black and white striped ribbon. Not sure where that inspiration came from but I liked it. The white circle card stock still needed something. Adhered the scallop to the ribbon and adhered the lime polka dot paper to white card stock. So at about the 18 min mark (HAHA) I punched three small black circles and glued them to the bottom of the circle and added some glossy accents. I think I finished it under 20 minutes. It's hard for me because I always change my mind :) Thanks for visiting and sticking around to the end. I really appreciate it!
