Bildmalarna Ahoy

If you're interested in purchasing some adorable Bildmalarna stamps, please visit Altheasmix. Mita has a great selection of stamps to choose, not to mention all kinds of tempting embellishments you'll want to buy, too! I fell in love with two of the nautical-looking images, so took time out today to step into the "studio" and make a card. Now you're probably wondering what kind of card is it, right? Well, it began as a tri-fold card, but since the image was too large for the measurements on SCS, I decided to "adapt." If you know me, "adapt" means eyeball the measurements and go with instinct...haha! I thought it turned out well for someone who hates measuring anything except for cooking ingredients :-D The ribbon is removed to open the card and to help keep it closed. Actually I wanted to use the Scor-Pal again; it's so much fun scoring cards! Hmmmm, think I'll venture back into the "studio" and try scoring a grid-looking card and see how the measurements turn out...wish me luck!

Hi Gigi!

I love the fresh look of the card and the nautical colors! You're so good at coloring the stamps Gigi! Is the bird a stamp too?

I would have liked to see the card opened too since I don't quite get the folding... hmmm... it looks complicated and I'm soo curious... as always ;)
