Wplus9 Feb./Mar. Release: Day 3

Saturday, February 22, 2014

Welcome back, friends!  I've got one more Wplus9 Design February/March Release creation to share, with you all, today.  However, this definitely won't be the last you see of these goodies from me ;).  LOVE all the basics, as well as the sweet specialties, Dawn has tied into this release!  Without further adieu, how about a little something for the upcoming Easter holiday?
I started this card by stamping a piece of aqua, gingham, patterned paper, along its bottom edge, in Jet Black ink, with the sweet, little lambs; trimming its right edge with a strip of floral, woodgrain, patterned paper; and framing it with a piece of our new Cashmere cardstock, as well as moss-threaded, zig-zag, machine stitches.
Before adhering the prepped piece, with foam tape, to the Steel Mill (another newbie), cardstock, card face, I wrapped it, between the two patterned papers, with a length of Baby Pink Berry, seam binding ribbon, which was tied, in a double bow, near the top edge of the card face and embellished with a pearl button, laced with a hemp twine bow.
The leafy frame was stamped, in Mellow Moss ink, on an ink distressed oval, cut from Oatmeal cardstock and adhered, with foam tape, in the center of a vintage frame, which, in turn, was adhered, with more foam tape, in the center of the card face, tucked below the embellished bow.  It was then topped with a die-cut, from Barely Banana cardstock, chick, which I grounded with a stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a bright pink, polka dot, patterned, paper, banner die cut, "Easter Blessings" sentiment, as well as a stamped, in London Fog ink, on an Oatmeal, cardstock die cut, bow, to complete the look.
Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of the web!  Have a wonderful Sunday and, for those of you who aren't regular followers of my blog, a blessed Easter season!  Oh, and don't forget to stop by the Wplus9 Design Blog to see what the rest of the team has been cooking up for this release, as well as to find out how you can still win a $100 Wplus9 gift certificate.  Hugs!
