hello...



Happy Saturday!

It's Amy T with a scrappy card!


I actually had a totally different card scheduled but it wasn't hitting me so I went back to the 'ole craft table and designed this.

The animal print tab on top of the flag is part of the narrow strip of contrasting paper that Crate uses on their 6x6 pads.

One thing I like to do is to upcycle packaging....that floral piece?  It is actually the button/brad packaging that came in the kit this month, I just fussy cut it.  It had some holes in it so I covered them with bling {from last month's kit}.  


The black cardstock {and sentiment die} is from my stash...I don't tend to design cards with black bases but I love the impact of it.  I'll be honest, I don't tend to use black bases because then you have to insert a panel on the interior...it's the laziness in me. 

I decided to make the interior fun on this one:


Oh boy, animal print.  I love it.  I'll have to confess though, I don't own anything animal print in my closet...can you believe that I tend to be a solid color girl....you wouldn't know it in my crafting.

Really loving this fun filled How's The Weather kit:


Get yours today!

  5. I use a white base & black front (most of my bases are cheaper white cardstock because i'm cheaper that way & lazy about decorating the inside) ... love how you used the bling to cover the packaging holes ... awesome card.
