Hello! Today I'm so happy to be sharing a card I made for the Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #3. This was a really fun board use. I chose to do the diagonal: love, paperclip, sketch.
The light bulb is a shaped paperclip that my sweet friend Jeanne included in this kit last year. I'm so glad I finally got a chance to use it! :) I had so much fun making this card. I really wanted the sentiment to stand out, so I kept the card white and just embossed dots on the diagonal strip of paper to create the layer needed for the sketch. This view shows it a little better.
I built the sentiment with Winnie & Walter's "The Big, the Bold, and the Happy" and Lawn Fawn's "Milo's ABC's". To create the rectangular color blocks, I simply put one of the alphabet stamps backwards on my acrylic block and stamped using the back of the image. Thanks so much for stopping by today! I look forwarding to seeing what you create with Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #3!
Lindsey, I love your clean and simple card and the way you highlighted the text - I HAVE to get that stamp set.ReplyDelete
Hypnotized by that colorful sentiment and the clever way you attached the clip - through the tag hole.. brilliant!ReplyDelete
Lindsey, this card is a brilliant design! My favorite thing about this card is the paperclip and and how you highlighted the text by stamping the back of the image (just how cool is that)! You totally inspired me to try something like this! :)ReplyDelete
