Just To Cut Paper!!!!!
I was going to post this card days ago and never got around to it. I really fell in love with the size of this card. It's sized to fit in a regular mailing envelope and even though you can only get one card out of a piece of 81/2x11 inch card stock I think this will be the size I use most of the time. When folded this card is 31/2 x 61/2 inches. I just have so many ideas that go best on a thinner card.
I used some colors that I thought I would never use. I have never liked the thought of using very vanilla until I bought some that is and now, I never use Whisper White. The other colors are Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard and Really Rust. They Weren¢t my favorites either but, I love them now and they go so well with the new Basic Grey paper. I used my super cute brads I got from the Oriental Trader and the bestest Wally-World ribbon ever. I also used some Stampin' Up ribbon. Just to let you all know I do not have a Cuttle Bug so the embossing is done on Fiskars texture plates first with the Fiskars tool and then with a stylus. I have to say my hand did hurt by the time I was done but, I got the look I was going for. And last but not least is the stamp set; it is YOU MAKE ME HAPPY and yes, it does make me happy. I didn¢t like it at first but, now it sits at the top of my favorite pile.
So can any body tell the theme of this card ? I was trying to show some love to the items that I liked the least. Excluding the brads and ribbon (I always like brads and ribbon). I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this card yet but, I have it when I need it!!! Thanks for reading! :D
