Just a Note

This week on Cute Card Thursday our theme is to create with pink and green and our sponsor is Heather from Heather's Hobbie Haven!

I've been fiddling and have created a post it note holder, more by accident than design!  I started with the thick back piece of card from an A5 paper pad, covered the front with old K&Co paper from my stash hiding the join (as it was a 6" paper pack) with the length of cotton lace.  I've run a green Copic around the edge of the card base then diecut around the text and to create somewhere to keep the post-it pad - it's between the two scallop squares with a length of ribbon acting as a hinge so you can lift off the top layer to get to write a note.

And here it is, sorry for the wonky picture.  I used the piece of green paper that's behind to cover the back of the pad just to keep things tidy.  I've embellished with gold corners I found in my stash, lengths of ribbon, Marianne diecut leaves, spray and butterflies, little roses and rosebuds, and snips of gold string.  I used different shapes of sticky back pearls to create the bodies of the butterflies and pink Waco pearl pen for the blobs on the flourish.

Creative Inspirations have an anything goes theme this week, and the Crafty Creations challenge is for pastels, pearls and lace - so I can enter both of them.

  3. Fabulous project Annie, what a great idea to 'hide' the post-it pad behind the scalloped layers. Pretty corners too. Green and pink is one of my fav colour combos.


  4. How funny - I've just been using that very same sentiment stamp! This looks super with the gold corners & those colours - I particularly like those gold bead strings & the way you added pearl embellishing to the leaf sprays & your butterflies. Very pretty.
