On Monday the Clean and Simple Challenge was to use punches. I don’t have much of my Urban Garden designer series paper left so a 1″ punch was all I needed to make this card. I actually made a set of 4 in under 15 minutes. I started with a Baja Breeze Base and then cut my Whisper White layer to 5 1/4 X 4 1/4. Using the Eyelet Border punch along the bottom edge made it the perfect size to mat on the card front. I then made my embossed frame with my fiskars cutter and bone folder. I started along the top edge 1/8″ in and ran the scoring blade from 1/8″ to 5 1/8″ and then followed up with the bone folder to deepen the impression. I then did the same thing placing the top of the paper at 2 5/8″. The sides were joined by scoring 1/8″ from the edges, but from 1/8″ to 2 5/8″ this time. I placed my circles and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure the placement was perfect. I added paper piercing and was satisfied with the results. I will show you the holder I am making for them later this week as it’s not quite done.
Today Evan has a pediatrician appointment as a follow up to the ENT. His adenoids are normal so I think that leaves us re-testing his immune system. Yesterday I didn’t get much stamping done since I spent the day talking to the school about a school yard bully down at the bus stop. This morning it happened again and I am just furious. I even confronted the parent and she did nothing. I guess I need to do some therapeutic stamping today to calm my nerves.
Have a great Wednesday!
