Memorial Day…reflect…be thankful…
I don’t know about you but it’s rare I sit and look back. So many memories and yes I’m thankful! Yesterday we went to a Civil War Reenactment that our grandson participated in. History brought to life. So many things going through my mind now.
On the fun side though, they started the afternoon with a fashion show. They showed and talked about the ‘ins and outs’ of dressing in that era. The hoop skirts…what a contrast to the skin tight jeans of today. eek! Glad I can be in the middle and be comfortable!
oh cards… yes, I have two to share today! lol Both are from the May Release at Taylored Expressions.
I die cut the new Starry Night Cutting plate in kraft card-stock and layered it to a navy, top folded A-2 size card base.
I embossed the new Brick embossing folder in red card-stock and then ran it through the Big Shot to die cut it with the new Build a Tag 4 die set. Stitched edges… love! It smashed the brick a little but I had inked one side of the folder with fired brick distress ink so I kinda like how it turned out!
I die cut the bell in gray from the new Patriotic treat toppers die set. Layered it on navy card-stock and mounted it to the tag with thin 3L mounting squares.
I stamped along the bottom of the tag with the word celebrate stamp from a TE Christmas set, A Winter View.
I glued on Studio Calico wood stars for embellishing and Lawn Fawn twine and hemp to finish off the tag.
Doodlebug Washi tape for the rainbow tea party and birthday party CAS cards I made… so fun… I know, it’s looks like I spent 10 minutes but actually I messed around for a few hours to get to these two cards! lol
Here I used the new Block Party die and Eventful Birthday Party die. I put washi on a piece of white card and die cut it for the background behind the gifts. I love how it turned out!
This one I used just a part of the new Eventful Tea Party Border die. Glad I don’t have to pick a favorite! love them all!
