Joan's Gardens - New Card


This card was created using Martha Stewart's new Lattice Lace Heart Edger. I punch out the hearts and pasted them on a cream card stock and then cut around the hearts to make them stand out against the green paper. The photo doesn't capture the gold foil very well, but it is quite stunning.

JustRites new Square Border highlights the Just Because sentiment from the new Just A Note Stamp set. The borders were cut out using two sizes of Spellbinders Label one. I used the gold foil again to carry out the color theme.

The back ground paper (green) is from the Graphic45 Renaissance Faire Paper Pad. Don't you just love it? It is so easy to achieve a vintage look with their paper. The patterns and colors in these paper pads are just gorgeous.
And of course May Arts silk ribbon finishes the look I was trying to achieve. I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed doing it. I love this time of year, because there is more time to craft (must work on those taxes though). There is no gardening, canning, yard work or Christmas preparations. Do you all have more time now too????

Joan -

WOW! What an absolutely beautiful card. You have done such a lovely job with it. I wish I did have more time to craft, but unfortunately, this is busy time at work for me - so I often have to put in longer hours.
