Remember that time I said I could create just about anything with paper??? A friend of mine reached out to me asking to make a special card for her husband who has just about finalized everything to graduate with his Ph.D. in something with plants, soil, genetics…..something like that! 🙂 I had a few ideas in mind and some were better than others. Here is what we decided to go with!!!
I punched lots of circles in So Saffron with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. Then I punched out hearts from the Owl Builder Punch in Chocolate Chip. I cut the hearts in half and adhered them to the “soybeans” (aka So Saffron Circles) with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. Then I took the 1/16″ Handheld Punch and punched holes along the top of a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Using Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine, I sewed along the top to create the look of a bag of seed. I added a strip of Crushed Curry to the front of the seed bag as well. I added this to a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the greeting and dots from the Perfectly Wrapped Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink. I attached this to a Night of Navy card base!
For the inside, I used a greeting from the You’ve Got This Stamp Set and stamped it in Night of Navy Ink onto Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″). It was just perfect!!!
Here was one of my other samples……it is suppose to look like the edge of a field, looking down the row, with a soybean. I tried to make it look like a row by ripping the paper and brushing it with ink to darken it. I think the soybean is a bit to large. I created the grass with the Fringe Scissors. This one was a good idea but didn’t turn out like it was suppose to look in my head! 🙂
I love being able to create one-of-a-kind cards for those who mean so much to me! 🙂
