March is one of those months that always gives me hope for an early Spring. Every once in a while March will surprise me with a glimpse of warmer weather. A day or two to savor until Spring really hits.
My card today features a sentiment I just love from Verve Stamps. It's perfect to give to someone that needs a little encouragement.
You may notice I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling card. I actually die cut it twice to make it a little longer. The doily was spritzed with some Glimmer Mist for a tad of sparkle.
The "enamel dots" are actually small pony beads that I melted in my oven. I have been having a difficult time finding enamel dots in stock lately. Plus I think they are a bit costly. You can find plastic pony beads at just about any craft store in the kid section. The smallest work best for cards. Just bake in preheated oven at 425 degrees on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Mine melted in nine minutes. You can find all the instructions and tips from this article by Betsy Veldman.
