Page 36 Case

Well, today I squeezed in some time to stamp. I needed a little push to get started. I checked out the challenges for today and they just did not appeal to me. So I randomly opened the catalog and took a color combo and a layout. My catalog opened to page 36. I did very few changes. I swapped out the stamp set for one that I had. It made it easier to actually make the card ;). Since my image was a bit smaller I did some piercing along the top. I moved the brads to the bottom and made it 3 since that matched the piercing pattern at the top. I use the piercing template to make sure my brads are straight. I did brush around the edges with Chocolate chip. The flower image is clear embossed over Chocolate chip craft ink. The butterfly is on a pop up glue dot. I wanted to use the poly-twill ribbon from the mini. I could not decide which color to use. Since they both fit, I used them both. :) I do not know why I do not just grab the catalog more often for inspiration...

  1. Love the card! I'm so tempted by this set, but I'm afraid it won't make the catty. Great use of the ribbon!

  2. Love the layout on your card!! :)

  3. What a great idea to open up the catalog for that little bit of inspiration! This is one very pretty card. Love the punched notch with the button accent.

  4. I want this set!!! I hope it makes it to the big fall book....


Thanks for stopping and taking time to leave a comment!!
