February's Card of the Month swap theme was Seafoam with String. I had all kind of ideas about the ocean and water and the usual, but I have to admit that my final idea came from a card that I saw in Archiver's last month. The link to the card and instructions for their card is HERE.
As you know I have been trying to use supplies I have on hand, so I didn't spend the $$$ to make Archiver's card as they showed it. Instead I used the Bird on Stems Cuttlebug folder I have had for a long time. I inked the folder on the raised side with Versa Magic Chalk Ink using the colors: Spring Pansy, Sea Breeze, Aquatic Splash & Aloe Vera. Then I ran it through the Cuttlebug using two pieces of white cardstock. I think using the two sheets of cardstock inked the page better. I used string & eyelets that I've had forever to finish off the card. The finished card is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".
