Just A Scrapping "Animals" design team 1 Challenge
Well, the camping gear is put away and we're trying to get back into some kind of a routine. Three days on the American River (Sacramento, CA) and an 8 hour drive home can really be draining. If you have an opportunity to go white water rafting you should go. It's so much fun.
So, here's my project for the Just A Scrappin "Animals" Design Team 1 project. Enjoy!
This card was created by using a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 cream colored card stock. The first layer is a scrap I had cut at 5 1/4 x 4. I then cut a 2 1/4 x 4 piece of cream colored card stock, embossed it with a Sizzix dotted swiss foler and inked the dots and edges with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" embossing ink. The dark brown rick rack was also a scrap (love to use up my scraps) cut at 4 inches. I used score tape to adhere it down. I popped up a 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 piece of dark brown (yep, scrap again. I stamped a kitty with a Recollections stamp set I bought at Michaels and used Copic markers to color him. Oh, forgot to mention I inked the edges. Now, look carefully at the buttons...these are actually not buttons. They are from punches I bought through Oriental Trading. They are the best invention I've discovered in my scrapping days. I can make buttons from any type of paper I have! Here's a close up. Fun, right?
Here's what the punches look like.
Thanks all for stopping by and I hope you have a sun shiny day!
