Thinking of You

A friend's birthday is coming up next week and she gave me strict orders not to buy her a birthday gift.  The ONLY things she wants is some of my homemade cards.  So I've been working to fulfill her wishes this past week-end. 
If you follow me on Pinterest you've notice my Paper Crafts folder is filling up!  I got to thinking -- "What is the use of a whole pile of pretty cards in my folder if I don't use them for inspiration?" 
So I printed off a few of them that I especially liked (and thought I had a chance at duplicating!) and set to work.  I'll be sharing the cards I made my friend along with the card that inspired it over the next few days.
Here's the inspiration for this first card -- more specifically those three tags in the background.
As I've mentioned in previous posts -- I've been experimenting with some digital items.  The tags on this card are part of those experiments.
First I printed some ledger paper from Mel Stampz
then I went back and printed some Script (also from Mel Stampz but I can't seem to find it on her blog) over top the ledger paper.
Other supplies include:
  • Tree Stamp (Owl Garden - Hampton Art)
  • Sentiment (Creative Stamping)
  • Lace
  • Ribbon
  • Circle die cut
  • Scallop die cut (on music paper) - from Abby
  • Bird die cut (on music paper) -also from Abby
  • Rolled Rose
  • Leaf Punch (Martha Stewart)
  • Brown and Green ink (to ink edges of tags/punched items)
