Hope you are all doing well and staying healthy! There is nothing new here to report other than the gym has opened back up and I went there four times since last week. I wonder everyday I set foot in there if I am doing the right thing by going. I don’t want to catch any of this virus stuff! They are running at I think less than 1/2 capacity. We have to make a reservation for any class we want to attend and can only make it up to 48 hours in advance. We are also only allowed 1 hour per visit per day.
My husband and I went out to eat for the first time since February last Friday. We went to a restaurant where we could eat outside on purpose. There was definitely MORE than 6 feet of space between the tables, so I felt very safe. Each time the waitress came to the table we wore our masks. Trying to be safe and still enjoy life a little.
I’ve been a stamping fool lately. There isn’t much else to do other than clean and if you put cleaning and stamping in front of me, stamping will win every time. 🙂
As I mention in the video, I started out wanting to make a shadow box card. My initial thought was to use the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set and Many Layered Blossoms dies, but I ended up creating a shadow box card out of one of my monthly club cards. For the card I am featuring today, I used the Sweet Silhouettes Dies, Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and Dandelions 3D Embossing Folder along with a sentiment and image from Dandelion Wishes stamp set. I love dandelions and I think the embossing folder and stamp set go very well together. I will give you the dimensions of the card stock pieces and colors used for the two initial cards I was going to make. The video will give you all the information you will need for the Dandelion Shadow Box card. The first supply list at the end of the post contains all the things you will need to create the Dandelion card. The second supply list will be preceded by the card stock dimensions for the other two cards.
If you watch the video, you will notice I didn’t decorate the inside front cover of the card. This is a photo of how I decided to quickly cover up that seam the card base creates.
