Social Stamping - Change

The theme is Change for Kelly Kent's final Social Stamping Covid Blog Hop. There is no doubt Covid 19 has certainly brought Change to many of our lives. It is also what allows us to grow as we learn new things, alter our mindsets, adapt to new processes etc. 

With that in mind, the card I have chosen to create today is a bit random as I told myself to make a card with a difference - something I hadn't done before, and with the limited tools I had taken to a crop day. Yes, we are lucky to be safely able to return to having our regular crafting sessions in NZ. Today's group was a monthly crop which I'm not always able to attend, but really enjoy catching up with the ladies when I get the chance. 

I have used a base of Smokey Slate. For the top layer, I've used a piece of Whisper White cardstock and the group of mini triangles from the Stitched Triangles dies, then just placed it in different positions to make the cut outs. This was adhered to a mat of Night of Navy and attached to the base card. I've used a scrap of gold from the centre of a wreath from the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper and diecut using the same dies, inserting the gold into a few of the blank spaces. 

I also broke out the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch I didn't think I needed but have since realised now versatile it is! (I don't think I'm alone lol). The greeting is from Under My Umbrella in Basic Gray ink on a 1/2" strip of Whisper White, with the background mat of Night of Navy being 3/4" wide. This card could definitely be stepped up, but it fit the brief - and is a bit of a change from my usual creations.

Although this is the final Covid blog hop, Kelly has decided to evolve towards a monthly social hop and will continue on the last Saturday of the month going forward.

Until then, please enjoy the rest of this hop by visiting Andrea:
