Open 040112
                                                 Happy April Fools Day!
ScrapbookPal recently selected five new members as part of their Design Team and I am so honored to be among this elite group.  Each of the new Designers are very talented and I know you will enjoy this blog immensely.

My name is Penny Ward and I am a lifelong crafter. I love making cards and hope you will visit me at to get new ideas for your own creations.

Make sure to check back often this month to meet the rest of the Design Team !!!

Though I know Easter is just around the corner, I wanted to share this card with you in hopes that you will challenge yourself to make one for someone very special.

Let’s Make a Card…..
1) Using Cricut, cut one oval at 6'” and two ovals at 5 1/2”, and three 1” circles. (For this card I used the Cricut Craft Room Basics …..I just love the Craft Room!!!) Cut largest oval in half, edge punch flat side. Spritz large and one small oval with Copic refill ink mixed with alcohol. Attach two halves of large oval with an eyelet.
2) Make stripes for outside of card using thin strips of card stock that have been inked and glued next to each other on a thin piece of paper, trim all edges. (this is also a great way to use scraps of card stock/patterned paper) Attach to card front. “Color” the circles with liquid pearls, let dry and attach to card front. Trim all edges as needed.

3) Attach smaller oval to backside of card front only on the lower edge (leave the center unglued). Stamp bunny on small scrap of white card stock, color, fussy cut and slide into opening of card or use a gift card.

4) With the last small oval, stamp image, color and add sentiment. Score a small section at top of this piece and attach to the card base.
5) Make flower from Poinsettia die, dry emboss the back of each petal, distress petal edges with ink, glue all petals together, poke the center with embossing tool and attach faux pearl to center. Attach small loops made from twine into flower. Attach to card front. Add Stickles and/or Liquid Pearls as desired.
