1. Find something you've had for more than a year.
Once you have all three items, make your card!
My something old: Except for the Graphic45 paper and the lace, everything on this card is OLD. The Cosmo Cricket and 7 Gypsies papers have been in my stash for years, and the dictionary pages used for the flower are "way old." I got that dictionary in 1978, which is what it says inside the front cover. My something that was a gift: The Melody Ross glass brads. My friend Jamie gave them to me for my birthday. Plus the lace was in a scrapbooking kit. The something I forgot I had: The Cosmo Paper and the foam stamp for the greeting (see below.) The Cosmo paper is one of those things that I run across from time to time in my stash and every time I say, "Hey, I forgot I had this!"
I did some distressing and inked things up a bit. I chose the image from a sheet of Graphic45 Domestic Goddess paper. This gardening lady reminds me of my mom. So this will be mom's Mother's Day card.Here is a shot of the glass brad.
Have fun shopping your stash!
