Pretty Little Studio: Celebrate U

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Morning, y'all!  I'm back, as promised in yesterday's late, For the Love of Books post, with my brother-in-law's birthday card.  It's up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today and inspired by our Wish You Were Here Collection.
 
I started this card by securing a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Roam patterned print, to the white, cardstock, card face, with black-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  A Beautiful Bookmark Journaling Card was wrapped, three times, with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow, and popped up, with foam tape, just south of horizontal center.
The Bucket List Pocket Card was stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the partial, "celebrate" sentiment; backed with a snippet of cheesecloth for additional texture; popped up, with foam tape, over all previous adherences; and embellished with a happy mix of Falling Leaves Sequins and Destination Star Die Cuts, some of which were popped up with more foam tape.
A "U" Polka ABC Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, completes the "celebrate U" sentiment and the look.
 
Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit!  Have a wonderful Wednesday, friends!
