One of a Kind Card
Hello everyone! Today is my day on The Bug Bytes - I have a simple card to share with you today and for once I am not embarrassed by one of my cards. I made this for a dear friend and I can't wait for her to get it in the mail!
I have been dying for Preserves forever and I finally indulged myself in one of the last cricutmachine.com sales. I don't know why I wanted it so badly - this card must have been in my head wanting to get out! Then when I got the K and Company Citrus Bliss paper stack at Joann's I decided it was card destiny! That's a real thing right??
I cut out the grapes with all layers at 4 inches and used papers from my scrap paper stash. I wanted to add some more dimension to all the flat papers so I inked all of the layers before assembling. I was very pleased with how the leaves turned out. A closeup of the bunch:
For my "one of a kind" grape I cut a circle at 0.70 inches from George and Basic Shapes. I used the layers feature on my Gypsy to figure out what would be the right size. Then I stamped with a Peachy Keen face stamp, added a touch of glossy accents to the eyes and pop-dotted it on the front. The card base from DCWV while the purple background paper as well as the sentiment stickers are from the K & Company Citrus stack.
On the inside I think I am going to add "...is the kind of friend you are!" and pop it in the mail with a little treat. I haven't forgotten my promise to show you the recycled popcorn boxes - that will be next!
