Ways to Use It Challenge


I finally was able to sit down and make today's challenge card: Cutting Corners. I had my 20 month old sitting next to me the whole time I was trying to put this together. This is not how I invisioned my card at all, but I am happy with the way it turned out.
I punched the balloons three times in Not Quite Navy, Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery. I cut them out and adhered with dimensionals after I stamped them onto the WW layer. I then used my ticket corner punch on the NQN and WW layer. I used a Fiskers punch called Lace that has three different styles in one punch. I think this has been sitting in my drawer for about a year!! Thanks for making me get it out! I punched the corners of the Apricot layer. I then stamped Linen tone on tone on the same layer.
For the middle panel I used my new MS edge punch that embosses flowers which is hard to see in the photo. I tied CC ribbon around that and added a piece of AA and navy ribbon in that. The sentiment was stamped twice once in NQN and then in CC. I punched out just the wording part and adhered with a dimensional. To finish it off, I added dew drops.

Whew!! Well thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my creation today!!
