Time to Celebrate by Donna Sledzik


Hello everyone! Today's card features new products from the 2021 Memory Box release.

I love that Dave included more slimline dies in this release. It took me a while to warm up to the slimline card design, but now I like it!

To make this card, I started by die cutting one of the Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles from a piece of watercolor paper.  I used used Distress Oxide Inks to ink the background. Next I spritzed the background with plain water and dried the paper. Once the paper was dry I spattered it with white ink.


I knew I wanted to use Wildflower and Daisy Stem dies for my card, so I die cut several from white cardstock.  Once I picked the die cuts I was using, I glued them to my background. 


I know my paper looks very wavy in this picture, but it was still wet. Once it was dry it flattered right out. 

At this point, I felt it needed a little contrast so I die cut a few gray stems from the new solid color cardstock. 

Next, I die cut the Sylvan Butterfly, the background is blue cardstock and the outline is dark gray. I glued only the center of the outline of the butterfly to the background butterfly. I glued black wire to the back of the butterfly for antennas and used foam tape to adhere it to my card.


To finish the card, I stamped and white heat embossed my sentiment and added some gray rhinestones. 

That's it for today! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!







Very beautiful and I love how your inks blended. The butterfly is a nice finishing touch and the wire antenna is genius.

Beautiful design and the ink blending is so pretty!

Pretty colors and such lovely design!
