You may have noticed something a little different about my blog. I've added tabs along the top and I made a Stampin' Up! Specials & Announcements tab. I will post any SU news there and I will keep that updated so if you are looking for any SU news simply click on that tab above.
I made this card for my ABC blog challenge and since Earth Day is this week we've decided to go ahead and use something recycled on your card. There's still time to play along this week some come join us. The current challenge can be found here.
I was looking through my sewing basket because I had to sew a patch on my son's baseball uniform and I came across some denim patches and I was about to throw them out when it dawned on me that I should try to use one and I did. My lattice die cut was made from an old denim patch. I have to tell you I was very surprised at how nicely my big shot and the die cut through the patch. I never cut anything other than paper so this was a nice surprise.
My white and river rock backgrounds are dry embossed using the perfect polka dots embossing folder. My flowers were cut out using the blossom party die and the flower centers were punched using a 1/2" circle punch. I had a small strip of the denim patch left so I cut it and place that towards the bottom of my card. I have dimensionals under my river rock layer.
I used the ticket punch to punch out my sentiment. I'll have to create a video showing you how I did that, but basically I stamped my sentiment and then punched it out making sure the words were along the top part of the ticked and then I placed the punch out onto a scrap peice of card stock and I was able to punch it again along the bottom and that is how I was able to make the punched shape more narrow that it really is.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and thank you to my new followers. I promise I will begin posting more often now. Have a great day!
