Since it's Friday, I will show you my CropStop embossing project. I wanted to try another card using NO printed paper. I don't do this very often, as you know I am a printed paper hog...but I love the clean look of just cardstock sometimes. I made a 4.5 x 4.5 card out of black cardstock. Then I embossed white cardstock with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and red cardstock with the Cuttlebug Ornaments folder.
I think this color combo is so pretty. I really wanted to add a bunch of flowers and junk to it. I even had some stamped images all colored and ready, but they just did not look right. So I left the card plain.I found this wide gingham ribbon at my LSS on Tuesday and purchased 3 yards of it. I really wish I would find a huge roll of this...for cheap! I tied the ribbon into a bow and snipped the ends. Didn't I tie a yummy bow? I see a lot of discussions and even tutorials about bows...and am not really sure what the fuss is about. I learned to tie my shoes when I was just a little girl...it's the same deal-e-o. Right?
I also found a huge bag of buttons at the LSS. They are by Buttons Galore and are almost as fab as the Papertrey Ink ones! I tied on a nice big one with twine. I have several large rolls of twine that I got at the craft store. Love that stuff. I stamped the greeting on a scrap of white paper. It's a Papertrey Ink stamp from the 2009 Holiday Tags set.
That's it for today. Have a great weekend!
