Nichole Heady posted a lovely inspiration photo for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop .
I don't have any extra time today, or this week in fact, because I'm babysitting every single day! School started for the teachers in our family last week, but the students only go back on Thursday. That means that nana has to step in and help take care of some of the littles. Two of my grandsons are starting kindergarten this week, eeeek, and for the first four days they only have school in the mornings, so they need to be picked up at lunch and cuddled and listened to (I'll probably get an earful from at least one of them) all afternoon. I'm looking forward to sharing the excitement of their first days of school, but I'm also dreading the possible over-excitement of it all. You have to know my Léo and Kristopher to know what I mean!
All of this to say, here is my blank notecard ...
Super simple. And not really my style. I really drew a blank for this challenge! I stamped two of the feathers and then debossed them with their matching dies. The third feather was stamped, die cut and popped up with dimensional adhesive.
And just like in the inspiration photo, I made a gold embossed polka dotted envelope liner. I used a one-inch circle punch to cut out some thin scrap paper that I had covered with Scor-Tape. I then peeled the liner off the circles and coated them with Zing embossing powder and applied my heat gun. Very simple to do. Then I just glued my circles to my envelope liner.
This one is for you, Pat!
