and instead of getting ready for the week (eek!) i've been playing and having fun with some paper smooches stamps!
after all, the challenge this week at paper smooches sparks is anything goes - so there's no excuse not to play!
along those same lines, i'm also entering it in the simon says stamp wednesday challenge! and it's another anything goes!! bonus!
well, let's start by showing the card:
my good friend (a guy!!) LOVES cross stitching, like super loves it! and he loves nintendo! so i thought, why not make him THE PERFECT BIRTHDAY CARD EVER! lol!!
i used the little x character from the needle little love stamp set, and then used a guide that i stamped out on regular printer paper first, to stamp out onto that fabric like patterned paper!
it was hard! i had to do MATH!! lol! i am not a fan of any math...so feel for me here! lol!
the sentiment was stamped onto vellum from the alphadots stamp set! then i threw some thread underneath it, because hey, it's a nod to cross stitching! ha ha!
there are a few mistakes, and it was a little tricky, and, seriously, for the love of all things crafty i HATE stamping with white ink...but i also love it at the same time...CURSE YOU WHITE INK PADS!
but yes, i really LOVE how this card turned out! especially because it was so perfect for the recipient!! ha ha!!
thanks for stopping by!
