I've been making so many one-layer cards lately that it felt weird to make this two-layer card, as if I were doing something radically counter-cultural, which is weird, don't you think?
Anyway, I have a drawer full of scraps of white card stock that need to be used, and white-on-white cards make me almost as happy as one-layer white cards!
This card uses some of my new Papertrey stamps...Birthday Bash Sentiments and Beautiful Blooms II. I wanted a very minimalist flower (cutting it off like that is pretty minimalist) that was still interesting. The triangle of flower, sentiment, and rhinestones keeps your eye moving and creates a nice balance.
I colored red rhinestones with a dark red Bic marker to get more of a burgundy shade to match the burgundy VersaColor ink of the flower. Love that little trick.
And now I'm going to share a story from my 14-year-old son. As he was getting ready for bed tonight, he said, "Mom, remember how you used to tell me I had Jesus in my heart? Well, I didn't know you were speaking metaphorically, so I thought a little Jesus really was in my heart, pedaling a bike in my internal organs." I'm just pleased as punch the kid now knows how to use "metaphorically" correctly, and ohmygosh, Jesus riding a bike in our hearts!!!! Kids are awesome.
And on that happy note, I'll say goodnight.
