Published Card - January 2011 Cards Magazine

My Very First Publication!
I thought I might start updating my blog with some of the publications I have had over the last year. 

Here is very first card that was published back in the Cards January 2011 edition,the Card is on Page 45.

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH:  Cardstockm, butttons, stamps:  Papertrey Ink; Patterned Paper:  Die Cuts with a View; Stickpins: Fancy Pants Designs; Ribbon:  Celebrate it from Micheals; Fabric:  Craft Supply; Jewels:  Dollarama; Ink:  Memento, Papertrey ink; Markers: Copic; Punches;  Stampin' Up (Split punch & Slot punch); Die cut machine: Cuttlebug, Dies:Cuttlebug flowers, Spellbinders Label 1

Create a card of white cardstock and cover the front with green patterned paper.  Punch a scalloped border and attach it to the right side of the card.  Die cut three fabric flowers in different sizes (2 in pink fabric and one in brown fabric using the flower cuttle bug die, then die cut the label and ink the edges.  Colour in the flowers leaves with a marker.  cut out a 2" circle of the brown fabri and stitch a basting stitch around the edge.  Pull the tread so the ircle gathers and makes a yo-yo flower.  Adhere it to the label and add a fabric flower.  Layer both with flowers, buttons and jewels.  Adhere the label to the right side of the card with foam adhesive.  Thread a ribbon through the hole punch and place stick pins through the bow.
