Hello bloggie friends! We have had lots of family visiting for the past several days; they are all gone now and the house is so quiet. My mom was here yesterday and wanted me to help her make a few cards. She and I found a few inspiring cards on blogs, and we both CASEd today's card. This is my version; my mom made both "happy birthday" and "thank you."
This card is a CASE of a card I saw on Pinterest. I believe it was originally pinned from a "thinking of you" card by the lovely Christine Pyrch. I started with my new Fancy Pants "Country Boutique" 6x6 pad (so many neutral colors in quatrefoil, chevron, text, polka dots, and woodgrain patterns...a staple for any paper crafter!) I chose this quatrefoil pattern and cut a 2x2 square. I used a 12x12 sheet of Bazzill card stock for the layer and the branch. I stamped my sentiment and added a button and twine...a sweet and elegant card.
