Is that the sun in the sky today! That is 2 days of sunshine here on Long Island and the temperature is so warm too! With open arms, I am welcoming Sunday Sunshine! This quarantine, I think we are in week 7 has taken it’s toll on me as I am so not used to the quiet and the chaos of the daily routine. All 3 boys are home, all doing schooling on the computers and hate to say it, bored. Nope, they are not crafters but they are the best 3 sons a mom could ask for.
Bonanza Buddies for Card Club!
This month, I chose the retiring Bonanza Buddies Bundle for my card club. Even under quarantine, I am still creating (not as often as I would hope) and holding classes. How is the possible? I have been doing weekly Zoom classes and it has been terrific! I am working on my Zoom schedule for this month and everyone is welcome to participate. I have to plan ahead so supplies can be shipped. Today’s card was a big hit. I loved how it turned out featuring the toucan bird.
The biggest detail you may notice is the placement of the banners on the vertical card. Each card, when I design, I try to alter slightly. Rarely are they exactly the same. The banners, were not initially placed like that until I was creating and when I was messing around they fell onto the card in that position! I went will it and actually love how it turned out! The Basic Black Banner is 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ before your place in the punch. The pattern paper is 2″ x 5 1/2″ before you play in the punch. I would rather trim it slightly then make the banner too small. As for the horizontal card, to max out the paper I cut it 4″ x 2″ and did the banner punch on both sides. I then cut the banner in hals and placed each piece over the 1″ black banner. The Stitched Shapes Circle covered my opening. Yes, the dies have a circle for the balloons but I used the 3/4″ circle punch to save time. I truly love how the finished product turned out. Do you?
