20 Cards in a Tin -- Day NINE - Touches of Texture

Good Morning Everyone! Well...my weekend did not turn out how I planned it at all! Friday evening I came down with a HORRIBLE flu! I missed my sons baseball game on Saturday because I slept ALL DAY! I missed church on Sunday because I slept ALMOST all day. Today...I'm feeling a bit better, but my tummy is still gurgling and hurts, but worse than that is my daughter came down with in early this morning! I hate seeing...hearing my kids sick! I'm guessing it's going to go through the house, but praying that it won't! I sure hope none of you out there are battling with it in your families!

The good thing is, besides that I lost a few pounds, is that I still have more 20 Cards in a Tin creations to share with you. Today is Day NINE...hope you're enjoying my creations! 

I was inspired to create this card by a card my up-upline sent me that I shared with you back on May 3rd. This gorgeous card is made with the Touches of Texture stamp set and the Stitched Shaped framelits. To make the frame, you simply put one framelit inside of the other when cutting your cardstock. Once the frame is made I decided where I wanted it to lay on my card and put it in place (you can use a TINY bit of Snail Adhesive to hold it in place if you'd like). Next, I stamped onto my cardstock as well as the frame at the same time. I stamped in Blushing Bride ink two times going down the card. After stamping carefully lift your frame (if you have used adhesive to hold it in place) and add dimensionals to the back. Line it up with the stamped image on the cardstock and adhere it.  I used the Botanical Builder framelits for the small Blushing Bride flowers and the Bitty Butterfly punch for the butterfly. The Basic Pearls finish it off nicely. Last, I layered my Whisper White stamped image to a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock and then to my Whisper White card base.  This card was left blank inside for this class but it sure would be cute to add some flowers and a sentiment inside for a special occasion! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I LOVE sharing what I LOVE to do with you! It's generally how I start my day...unless I'm behind! Come back tomorrow for Day TEN! Leave a comment if you love this card...it's so encouraging to hear from you! I don't want to bombard you this morning so I'll be back this afternoon with a "Make-It Monday"!

Have a MARVELOUS MONDAY!!!
