What a Pear!

The base of this card is 5"x6 3/4." I cut the card from "Just Because" Cards at 6 1/4." I used a white cardstock and sponged two colors of green alcohol inks on the top half. I adhered the card to the base I made. I cut the inside of the card from some light green cardstock and edged it with lime green Stickles. I embossed a piece of glittery green cardstock, cut at 4 3/8"x3 1/2," with one of the Preserves Companion folders. I adhered it to the bottom half of the card and wrapped a ribbon around the middle. I cut two pears out and pop-dotted one of them. I added three green gems to the bottom right of the card. I stamped my sentiment, which is from My Pink Stamper, and layered it and mounted it to the card. I thought this would make a great, non-traditional Valentine's Day card.

I made this for the following challenges:
  • 365 Cards: "Half & Half" - on one half use a sponging technique and on the other half use some embossing
  • CPS: sketch #203
  • Jitterbuggin': "Non-traditional Valentine's" - make a Valentine's Day card, using any sketch, but no red or pink
  • My Creative Time: "Throwback Thursday" - use either "Just Because" Cards or Wild Card and include a stamped sentiment
