Make it Monday: Motif Building

hello! I have a card for this week's Make it Monday challenge today! I'm kind of loving how this one turned out :)



here's my video, I edited and edited and cut parts out and sped other parts up, and it's still almost 15 minutes long. sorry. :)



For as long as the video took and as much talking about it as I did in the video, this is actually a pretty simple card. I started with a piece of soft stone cardstock cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and stamped the sentiment in the center. Then I used my MISTI to build the scene around the sentiment. I cut my gray panel down a little bit to 4 1/4" x 5 1/4", die cut the heart out of it, mounted it on a red card base, and finished it off with some baker's twine. (that's the super simplified version, if you want to hear me babble on about it for close to 15 minutes, watch the video lol) This card is very similar to this one I did last month :)

 So, something magical happened yesterday. Bree helped me put dishes away. She picked up the silverware and measuring cups out of the basket in the dishwasher and put them in the drawers (although she did try to lick a few of the spoons...) and she handed me plates to put away in the cabinets. It was amazing! Here's hoping this the start of a happy new trend :)

I'll be back tomorrow with another post featuring the Petite Places: Holiday Lane stamp set! Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous day!
