Oh my! I made something!

Well, truthfully, I've been busy making things, but I just haven't shared them. I'm selfish. LOL No, I've just been really busy! So anyway, I just wanted to share this card that I made tonight.

First, let me say that it isn't a card but rather a card front but that is only because I haven't got any card bases made and I'm feeling particularly lazy and I don't want to make any right now. Besides, when I go to use the card, I can just make one then. hehe!

Okay, so this card was made with paper that my friend Mary Dawn sent me. I love it! It is from Cosmo Cricket and she bought it from the TSV on QVC. I debated on whether I should get it and now it just proves to me that I should have purchased it. Oh well, I'm sure that I'll find some other paper somewhere to help me pass the time. HAAAAAAA!

I used a bee from Stampendous on GP white cardstock with Staz-On ink. I colored him (her?) in with Prisma pencils and OMS. I used my cuttlebug (LOOOOOOVE!) and Nestabilities (LOOOOOOOVE!) to make all of the rectangles and the circles. I distressed the edges a bit and used some Distress Ink to color the edges. Then I used some cheapo sheer ribbon that I purchased from Michael's to tie on to the corner of the smaller rectangle. I secured it in back with a piece of Scotch tape. :D I mounted the two rectangles onto my card front with pop-up dots and the circles were mounted with a pop-up dot and some runner tape. Then I covered two of those shimmery flowers from Michael's bridal section with some Martha Stewart glue and then rolled them around in some of her glitter. (Does anyone else just want to pour the glue on themselves and pour glitter on them because the glitter is THAT fantastic? LOL Okay, must just be me.) Anyway, I secured the flowers to the card front with 2 Heidi swapp Retro color brads.

I like how it turned out! I love this Cosmo Cricket paper. Anyway, hope you're having a great day!

Very cute! Also a great idea to make the card fronts and then mount later.
