Hello! How was your weekend? Josh and I made a little three day getaway to Niagara Falls, on the Canadian side. We almost cancelled because the weather was going to be bad, but decided we could use the relaxation as much as we would have enjoyed a busier weekend. It's just a little over a four hour drive, but such a beautiful place to be. And would you believe I forgot my camera? But I'm sure you've all seen pictures of Niagara Falls before anyway. We did manage to squeeze in the Cave of the Winds tour and a morning shopping in Niagara-on-the-Lake between rain drops...and snow flurries!
On to the card. This cutie is from Lizzie Anne's new Great Expectations sixlet set. (Just $11.99. How awesome is that?!) I cut the card 3.5 x 5.5 inches so I'd have room to hang the flower off the edge and still fit the card in a regular envelope. Besides, I think this is the cutest size card anyway. I embossed the card front with a Cuttlebug folder. I had to run in through twice to get a fully embossed front. Then I just used a stylus on a soft surface (my paper piercing foam mat) to finish off any circles that only got half embossed. That way there's no seam. Make sense? The flower is a Spellbinders blossom die, with a circle die cut in the center. I colored my bee with Copic markers and Stardust Stickles and added a bling swirl from Prima. And it's all ready for a new little someone! Papers are SU's barely banana, pixie pink, and cool caribbean.
