Handmade "Every Day" Greeting Card and Altered Can / Pen Stand



Hello everyone. Welcome to my blog. Hope you all had a great weekend. I have an altered can and a card to share with you all.
 
First for Altered Can, I used a coconut milk can. I wrapped and glued the pattern paper onto the can. secondly, added daisy border using Recollection Border Punch. For the center,  I cut out two circle, one with black card stock and another with pattern paper.  I added some pearl border on the black circle and then layered with dotted black card stock and designer circleThen, I added some hand cut butterflies to give the finishing touch.

Next, for the card: I started it by using a white card stock as my base. Then layered it with red and black card stock. Added pattern paper on the center. Pattern paper is Fresh floral stack papers from DCWV. I used border punch, pearls and butterfly to embellish the card. Sentiment is hand written. The finished size of the card is 4.5" X 5.5".
