Back to Basics Hop


Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with a fun hop with some friends from Handmade Happiness Facebook Group. Most have video's however I went for a Blog post this time. 

For this project I went back to the beginning of cardmaking for me, cardstock, ephemera and stickers. I used materials from the September Echo Park kit of the month. 

So back when I first started card making I did not have stamps, I had cardstock, stickers and vinyl. I made cards this way for about 4 or 5 months. So for my card I really went back to basics. 

My cardbase is 4.25" x 5.5" and I went top folding landscape style. I cut a black layering panel slightly smaller at 4" x 5.25", and then cut 2 pieces of cardstock I wanted as my top panel at 2"x 5". this allowed me to have a slight overlap. 

The Sentiment panel was in the Ephemara packet, which I adhered with foam tape. I affixed my little puffy sticker squirrel with his acorn above the word Favorite, and then 3 puffy sticker acorns in the upper left corner and my project was complete. 

I hope you enjoyed this project.
