365 Cards Day 107 - So Girly & Our Creative Corner - Border Punches
I've not been terribly creative today. I wanted to use a Sizzix embossing folder which had the same text as I have used with my Cuttlebug Typewriter alphabet, but I couldn't work out a sketch for it. So I'm back to an old favourite layout that I have used many times. It's simple but it works.
The feet are a stamp by Anita's and the embossing my favourite Swiss Dots!
The border is from a Martha Stewart punch.
365 Cards wanted the word 'Girl' somewhere on the card and Our Creative Corner's Challenge was to use a border punch.
As the letters from this alphabet are so tiny I stick some double sided tape onto the back of the card BEFORE I run it through my Cuttlebug machine, so that I don't have to try to glue teeny individual pieces. The dot on the 'i' is particularly titchy. Even so, trying to get the backing off the small bits is a bit like playing tiddlywinks!
