Hello friends, welcome to Card 5 – Stay Cool ! Why a fan you might ask?
Because we’ve just survived the craziest heat wave ever (but just barely). This past week, your friendly neighbourhood scrapbooker and the entire Northwestern part of North America, suffered through record breaking heat, the likes of which we’ve never seen.
But not to fear, I’ve made this cute little fan to blow the fragrant scent of summer blooms your way 💛
I’m using Hey Hello by Pebbles as my starting point but also stash busting through my craft room. Do you have a lot of cute scrappy stuff you’re squirreling away, while buying the latest and greatest? Guilty as charged. I love it all, want it all and to some degree, (plug your ears Jim) buy a lot more than I need 😁.
I love to incorporate stitching onto my projects and this week wasn’t an exception. For the pieces of the cut file I hand stitched, I cut one from the patterned paper and one from white cardstock then taped them together. After piercing holes with a pin on a rubber mat, I chain stitched with 6 strands of DMC thread in a coordinating colour.
‘What heat wave’, says this cool snail. 😁
Here’s a short video tutorial for all the tricks on how-to put it together.
Since it’s the tallest card I’ve designed so far, I’ve tucked it in as the last card in my Memorydex Box. Who knows what comes next? Well I do of course, but you’ll have to come back next Sunday 😘
I love seeing all the shapes, patterns and colours mingling together in the box.
