I was up at 6am this morning, even though we had quite a hectic day yesterday visiting the new twins in the hospital and having dinner with the old twins at their home. My husband was still sleeping and I wondered if I could actually make a card before he woke up... just A card. I saw this beautiful blue paper staring at me from across the room and decided I'd see if I could make something using it.
Step #1, See if I have any paper in my stash that matches it... I found the brightly colored flowers. The bright flower paper reminded me of OWH's Sketch #218 which is perfect for paper that needs to be showcased. Step #2, Find two other patterned papers to match the colors in the flower paper. Hence the light blue and sunny yellow.
Step #3, Cut all the pieces following the measurements.
Step #4, Assemble all the pieces.
Step #5, Pick a sentiment. The whole color scheme seemed so happy. I looked at the sentiments I have in a printers tray on the wall and there staring back at me was
"You make me happy". How perfect!
Step #6, Add brads.
Wow! I looked at the clock and it was only 9am... and seven cards were done! I was amazed at how quickly something comes together when you use a sketch, find some papers
and "Just do it..."
