Flap Overlap Card

For this card I used the "Flap Overlap" design from Jeanette Lynton's cardmaking book, Originals, page 21.

When I look for creative ideas, I turn to Jeanette's cardmaking and scrapbooking books. You can find them here. They make paper crafting so fun & easy! These books make wonderful gifts for any scrapbooking/cardmaking friends.

This card will be for a special couple's silver anniversary -- I may use Versamark ink and silver glitter to make the flourishes pop.

Colonial White CS (base)
Kraft CS
Bliss paper packet Level 2
Stamps from "You and Me" kit--flourish and celebrate
Inks: Grey Wool, Desert Sand
Designer Brads Shimmer
Itty Bitty pewter brads
Foam squares (under the Shimmer brad)
Scoring tool
(Sheer ribbon from The Ribbon Boutique)

We've had a flurry of a new four-year-old's activities including a dance recital AND a swim party birthday celebration this weekend. A child's JOY in simple things such as a Polly Pocket or a pool "noodle" is so refreshing! After church today, I'm heading back to the pool for more fun. Today is our Strawberry Shortcake's actual birth day -- that just means more cake & ice cream!

Here's a peek at the cake complete with its "crumb coat", recycled candles, & four little mini friends:


Have a super Sunday -- happy Pentecost! God's force--the Holy Spirit--is with us as our Friend, Comforter, and Motivator!
