Pretty Little Studio: Hello, Lovely 2018

Monday, January 1, 2018

Happy New Year, y'all!  I'm sharing a celebratory number on the Pretty Little Studio blog again on this first day of 2018 and wanted to pop in here with it as well.  Enjoy!
I started this card by trimming the left edge of a narrow Magical Lights, patterned, paper piece with a strip of the Starry Sky print and anchoring them both, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching, to the white, cardstock, card face.  I then wrapped their vertical connection, three times, with a length of white string and tied it, in a bow, near the top edge of the card face.
The "HAPPY memories" Dream Big 3x4 Pocket Card was backed with a snippet of cheesecloth for texture; popped off the center of the card face with foam tape...
and topped with "2018" Gold Metallic Number Die Cuts which were, in turn, topped with a "hello lovely" A Great Day Flag Sticker, backed with white cardstock, hand-cut out, and popped up with more foam tape.  A butterfly Beautiful Bookmark Die Cut and sprinkling of Flower Crown Stickers complete the look.
AND while I've got you, check out the sweet January Foldable Vintage Valentines + Faux Stamps Freebie with any $24 or more purchase from the shop.  LOVE!
Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit!  Hope your 2018 is perfectly lovely, friends!
