Well, I guess I didn't get back to stamping quite like I was hoping. The kids went back to school and in many other ways it was just a crazy week. But I do have my card for my second week of hosting at Our Creative Corner. This week I'm challenging everyone to do something fun with folds - make a card with an unusual fold or include something folded on your project.
I have to admit that I feel like a real dork when I struggle with a challenge that I came up with in the first place! I had trouble deciding what to do with my card, and then once I figured that out, I still struggled with the stamping. I like how it turned out, though - it just ended up a bit simple because I ran out of time!
The stamps I used come from the hostess set Cute by the Inch. I was able to make a nice medallion in the center by using my Stamp-a-ma-Jig and one of the stamps - even though I have these in clear-mount, I couldn't be quite precise enough for my taste without it. The "friends" stamp then went on top with dimensionals. I didn't have a lot more room on my card so I just finished off with a scallop border made from the Tasteful Trim die - after I got my die-cut strip, I cut it in half to make two narrow border strips. At the bottom I added three (retired) Old Olive buttons threaded with tiny strips of white card stock.
I hope you'll find a fun way to use folding this week and play along with our challenge - and be sure you check out what the rest of the OCC gals have done this time around. They never disappoint! Thanks for stopping by today!
