Gracias!

Hola!! Ok, so my Spanish speaking skills are rusty, but that doesn't mean my Spanish speaking family and/or friends wouldn't enjoy a homemade card in Spanish! :)


I absolutely love this new paper that I got from DCWV. It's the Citrus Mat pack and it's so colorful. It really makes me long for Spring!! It also kind of reminds me of some decorative pottery you sometimes see on people's porches.

This was the first time I've ever used brads. I really love working with them. They add so much to a project!

Project details: This is an A2 sized card. I used white paper and a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch set and put the decorative paper I mentioned above, on top of it. I cut out this flower at 2" from the Cindy Loo cartridge. The sentiment tag was a happy accident. I used my rounded corner punch and it ended up overlapping on each side. I liked the way it looked, so I kept it! You can't tell, but I used my Spica glitter pens on the flower. The closest I could get to showing it glisten was with a flash.



The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's newly released set Spanish Sayings. I really do have Spanish speakers in my family. My cousins actually speak both Spanish and English. I always wanted to be bilingual, but even 5 years of Spanish in high school and college didn't help me with that, LOL!


I hope you're all having a great Monday!! :)
