WOW.....can't believe it's been SO long since I have been in here! But with the holidays and cookie baking business, I have had virtually NO time to make cards or's good to be back!
I wanted to try a technique that is becoming popular. It requires cutting a circle in a CB or Sizzix embossing folder. Then when you emboss the cardstock, it leaves a blank circle to stamp in. I don't think I want to try this again. It's difficult to cut thru the plastic!
I used SU Taken with Teal and Black cardstocks. The corners are cut with the new Paper Shapers Photo corner punch. The verse came from the new SU stamp set, "Whimsical that set! The circle around the saying....well, I used a Circle nestie and drew 2 lines around the edges of it with a Sharpie marker. Then I filled the border with a layer of Tombow glue and sprinkled Doodlebug Sugar coating on the glue. The dazzle doesn't show up well in the photo. Hopefully, next week I will back to a daily schedule in here. Til then.....
