This afternoon I had the opportunity to make a card for this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Inspiration photo: A Burst of Blooms
I was inspired by a couple of things in this photo. First of all the size - I like the brown chair with the afghan draped over it and decided to use a 3" x 11" scrap of Kraft card stock for my card base (scored at 5 1/2"). Then, I was drawn to the shape of the flowers in the afghan and thought of this PTI doily die mimicked the shape quite well. Lastly, the afghan itself had a 'polka dot' feel to me, so I pulled out some October Afternoon polka dot scrap paper to use on the card front.
Card Details (3 1/4" x 5 1/2" card size)
Stamps: Make Mine a Double (MFT)
Ink: Versafine black; Distress tumbled glass & broken china (inside)
Card stock: Copic Xpress it; MFT solid; October Afternoon patterned
Other: Sewing machine; MFT scallop die; PTI doily die; May Arts silk ribbon; Copic markers; detail clear embossing powder; dauber; Spica glitter pens; Spellbinder long rectangle die
and the inside view...
It was quite enjoyable using up several scrap patterned papers to make this card - love to mix and match patterned papers from a variety of October Afternoon lines. It just makes me happy that all their collections work so well together!
Thanks for checking in on me today!
