I hope everyone had a blessed Easter. We actually had family over for Easter, which is a real blessing for us since we live far away from all of our family. After we moved to Orlando a few years back, my cousin and her then boyfriend moved as well. He is a doctorate student at FCU. Her family is in town visiting them. We all decided that since we are only about 45 minutes away from each other, it was worth getting together to spend Easter. Like I said, it was really special for us because we usually spend all holidays except Christmas and occasionally Thanksgiving on our own.
Needless to say, I kind of forgot how stressful it can be to have people over, though. We spent days doing a major clean, and trying to clear out a few boxes. We don't have many left, but the ones that were still there just needed a reason to be moved. Of course, extra space for the stuff still in the boxes would have been helpful, too. Oh, well, overall, I think everything went off pretty well.
Now to the card...
Today's card is finished to be square, and it gate folds to the center. Again, I am slacking because I don't know anything about the supplies I used for it. The things I do know are I used my Bic Mark It Markers, ribbon and Stickles. I have had the ribbon forever! I fixed the ribbon to look like it is what is tied to hold the card closed, but it really is not.
You can see better here. The matted, colored image fits under the bow; thus, keeping the card closed. I learned from a very smart crafter that I don't necessarily have to stamp my sentiment ahead of time. So, I think I will add this card to my stash and place a sentiment on the bottom left corner when I am ready.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
