I recently purchased a big beautiful stamp from the Colorado Craft Company, and I had been playing around with it, just testing it out, and the image was so pretty and stamped so nicely, I couldn't bear to toss it. It was being pushed around on my desk and when I saw the challenge had "red" as a square, I went to work to figure out how I could used that stamped image! SO....I have the middle row going across of Red, Fun or Fancy Fold and Ribbon or Twine:
So obviously, the stamp is big...and round...and I stamped it on a regular quarter sheet of cardstock, so I didn't get the complete design on it. But I hated to waste it! I used a huge stitched circle die to cut out what I could, did a little crease at the top and mounted it on a piece of Real Red cardstock embossed with some snowflakes, and then that all went on a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock to give it some weight. You can see how it folds out from this side view:
I added a shorted diecut tag with a sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas, and some Real Red ribbons:
When you flip it up, you have the sentiment in another circle and you can see all the embossed snowflakes:
I thought it was a good save, and I am looking forward to making a full-sized circle card with the whole design in the near future!
SO.....now what will tempt you from our Tic-Tac-Toe board? If you need to make a few more holiday cards, perhaps you'll find a "recipe" that will give you inspiration! Please check out what the DT did over at the Paper Players blog for some more inspiration and play with us as well! Thanks for popping in today! Enjoy it and be blessed!
