WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!!

Hello and Happy Sat.  It is raining cats and dogs here today so it's a great day to stay in and create! Exactly what I am doing....
This is a card I made to go along with the Suit Case Mini Album I am working on.
All items in the card (minus the sentiment) and most of the Album are from Heartfelt Creations.



The card is 5 1/2 x 7 1/2.  I started with one of the card fronts from the 250 Birds and Blooms Paper Collection.  Then I stamped 3545 Open Leaf and colored with Spectrum Noir markers LG4 & 5.  Cut those out with 736 Classic Leaf Die, shaped and adhered to card. Then I stamped the 3651 Botanical Rose flowers 3 times using Versa Mark and Fall Splendor embossing powder.  Cut those out using 758 Botanical Wings Die, colored the center with Stampin Up Rose Romance Ink, shaped using the Flower Shaping Kit and adhered to card.  Added glue to the center of each flower and yellow glitter.

You can get instructions on how to make the Mini Album at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLIY7hwM1cI   It's by Designs by Shellie
I did a few things different and the front is by no means finished...the top handle is real leather and I attached those using brads.  The straps for the buckles (Tim Holtz) are a vinyl I picked up at the local fabric shop and cut to the correct length and with I needed.  Those also are attached using brads.
Okay, yall have a wonderful weekend and I hope the weather is great where you are, cause here it is WET!!!!!
