Find Joy in the Simple Things


Here is a card I made this afternoon to send to a friend who has been going through some trials in her life. I started with a 4 1/4” X 5 1/2” white card stock base for my card. I added a pink mat cut to 4” X 5 1/4” and the added the patterned paper from a DCWV All About Girls mat stack cut to 3 3/4” X 5”. The mushroom is from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge. I cut the all the layers of the mushroom at 3 1/2”. I adhered everything flat to the card. For my sentiment mat I cut a piece of the pink paper at 1 1/2” and used an EK Success border punch to give it that open scalloped border. I then cut a piece of white card stock at 1 1/4”. Finally I stamped my sentiment with some Tea Dye distress ink and added the small buttons for a little more pop of color.

I think this will put a smile on my friends face, don’t you. I can’t help but smile when I look at the little mushroom. Thanks for visiting.
