we're going a bit tutti frutti shopping our stash this week! we'd like to see cards and projects that have fruit or veggies on them; alternatively, you could make a teacher appreciation card or gift, so there are plenty of different ways to take this! here's what i made:
|patterned paper: basic grey; journal card: simple stories; cardstock stickers: doodlebug; strawberry, cherry, sun, cloud and mini butterfly brads: eyelet outlet; tape: love my tapes, doodlebug, scotch, little b, heidi swapp, martha stewart; glossy kromekote cardstock: the paper cut; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape|
this is my favorite sort of card, because i've mixed some brand new must-haves (those uber-cute tropical-themed cardstock stickers from doodlebug ) with some of last year's eyelet outlet brads and scraps of ancient basic grey paper. i love the way new supplies make me look at my older stuff with new eyes and find cool combinations i hadn't thought of before!
my favorite part of this is the sticker collage, which i've built on top of a trimmed-down 4x6" journal card whose letters are a pretty good match for the colors in the stickers. i added the typed sentiment strip to make this read, "aloha, birthday girl" which i think is a fun thing for a card to say!
i used the current sketch saturday layout (#431) to guide the placement of my elements, though clearly i've played around with the proportions quite a bit... i *think* you can still see the "bones" of the sketch though?
there's lots more fruity food for thought over at SOS, why not hop over and enjoy that right now, darlings?!
