Hope Chest Card

Hi dear friends!

The other day I
was playing around with the new Pink Paislee Hope Chest collection I bought when we were in Virginia, and created this card. It really isn't what I had intended to make... just kept thinking of some things to try and liked how it was looking.

 I started with a Recollections 
kraft cardstock base and put on two mats of Core'dinations Kraft-Core from the Nostalgic collection. Topped those with a Alterations Vintage Doily cut from ivory cardstock. I picked up a scrap of the Hope Chest paper left over from Sarah's birthday card I made a few days ago. Punched it and added regular size eyelets... then laced them with some thin turquoise organza ribbon. Next I made a pocket with the Alterations Pocket envelope, altering it slightly by cutting the top flap off in order to keep the pocket open. Punched it also, put on two eyelets and tied on a bow of the same ribbon. Glued on an old Girls Paperie glittered clock charm, and tucked in a piece from the Hope Chest Paper Goods pack. I gave this an eyelet and ribbon adornment too! Then I grabbed up two more of those Paper Goods die cuts, inked them with the same Vintage Photo Distress Ink I had been putting on everything else, and tucked them in behind that laced pieced that I popped up with 3-D foam adhesive.

Now to give it a
few flowers. I reached for the Prima box and the one containing the white I Am Roses blooms and green leaves. While I was at it, I thought I would add a couple Dear Lizzy metal rose brads... love those things!

To finish it off,
I glued on two Momenta metal corners.

As per my usual,
I left the tag blank until I decide where this card is going and what sentiment will be appropriate. I'll tell you... this is one heavy card!

We are off on another
trip this weekend. The Penmaker decided we needed to attend the Mid-Atlantic Penturner's Gathering near Richmond, Virginia. Since this isn't that far from Fredericksburg and the Scrapdoodles shop, I heartily agreed... if we could make a slight side trip. So there may be some scrappy shopping in my future.
Have a wonderful Sunday!

Thanks for stopping by!
