Thinking of You pennants card


Do you ever create a card that makes you happy to look at it?  Today's card would be an example of that for me!  I hope that it makes the recipient feel the same way!  :)

I pulled inspiration from Stampin' Celebration's challenge this week:

...and incorporated this week's Mojo Monday sketch into my card...

I loved the pennants in the Stampin' Celebration inspiration photo!  They were very easy to create using the Modern Label Punch!  I simply inserted my cardstock straight edge first, looking through the underside of the punch.  I only inserted the cardstock a little more than 1/3 of the way in, and punched.  I then folded a lip into the punch-out, about 1/8" in, and glued each one around the Linen Thread.  I wanted to add a little texture, so I ran the whole thing through my Square Lattice Textured Impressions folder.  I love how it turned out, and it's a great way to use up scraps!

After placing the butterfly with a mini glue dot, I thought it'd be really cute to create a path using some Linen Thread (which by the way, is one of those accessories I can't live without!).  Just a couple of tiny dots of Crystal Effects keeps the loop perfectly in place!

I do have some exciting news that I will share soon!  Thanks for stopping by!
