Welcome to Flashback Friday! Today’s project is brand new, but made with older, mostly retired CTMH products. If you have followed my blog for awhile, you might remember a baby boy card I made back in early June for a friend of mine that is having a baby next month. Well today’s project is a matching gift that goes with that card.
Both projects used patterned papers taken from a retired kit called, Snips and Snails. The cardstock colors used in this project were: Heavenly Blue (retired), Sunkiss Yellow (retired), Buttercup, Sweet Leaf, and White Daisy. The ink colors were: Heavenly Blue (retired), Sunkiss Yellow (retired), and Sweet Leaf.
When you look at the project a little closer, you can see where I have stamped on the cardstock, for a subtle background look.
Although the beautiful baby-boy themed papers really stand out, I added a few embellishments for further interest, including: buttons, waxy flax, gems, brads, and Washi tape.
Here is a picture of the framed project. I had a heck of a time trying to take a picture without the glare, but it proved impossible for a novice photographer like myself. Taking a picture on the side helped a bit, but if you look closely, you can see the reflection of my iPad taking the picture…LOL!
Just a reminder, I have 2 specials going on all this month… when you spend $25 or more on my shopping website, you will receive a free mini stamp, and when you spend $50 or more, you will also receive a free copy of the new CTMH Annual Inspirations 2014/15 Idea Book/Catalog! (Prices are before taxes and shipping). This book hasn’t even been released yet, but I have copies in stock NOW! Will you be getting one this month?
Have a great weekend everyone!
I’ll see you in the craft room,
