Twist & Shout over Spring!

Well, my genius SIL has done it again. See here. This was an INCREDIBLE idea, so I've naturally stolen it. Something about imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Anyway...

My OB is fantastic and I love her. She's been awesome the past nine months, and I know I'll want to thank her properly after Hennessey is born, so I made the thank you card today.

I used the Wishblade to cut the flower pattern on both of the papers. Thanks to my dad for doing math for me because I'm too pregnant to figure out five into 360. Anyway, now that the difficult cutting was out of the way, I just had to put it together using a variation of the Spinner Card Penny Technique.

I think all in all this came out quite well. I'm not using my camera, so I didn't get all of the angles I wanted for the photos, but you get the idea, eh? Oh, and the supplies list is extensive!! But it was so worth it! :)

Supplies Used:
Mark Richards Metals
StazOn Ink - Jet Black
Distress Ink - Walnut Stain
DCWV - Pocket Full of Posies
Zips Clear Adhesive Strips
Offray - Sheerly Yours White Ribbon

By far, one of my most favorite cards recently! Thanks for stopping! :)
