Hey everyone. I have a quick post for you today. I wanted to share a birthday card I made for my wonderful sister-in-law, using scraps I had lying on my table after the previous project. I had made a shadow box using Graphic 45's Secret Garden collection, so all of these bits and pieces were laying there waiting to be utilized.
I just had a bit of this paper left, just enough to fit across the top of the card, but not enough to fit vertically. So, I found some blue CS to be the card base, and fussy cut the top portion of the scrap I had. I glued it down across the top, I was beginning to feel like I was underneath some shade trees in a garden. Now I wanted the bottom portion to look like a fenced in area, so I cut the border from one piece and the gate from another section, and glued them down, leaving the top free of glue, forming a pocket to insert my tags, as shown in photo 2. I fussy cut a butterfly, "Secret", and "Garden", from another piece and glued them down on each side of the gate. The butterfly ended up in the flowers. I added some beautiful rumple ribbon from Love Bug Creations to the tags, and voila, simple but beautiful card. Not a scrap went to waste.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you will come back often. You never know what I will be up to next.
Have a wonderful, creative week!
