Top Note Patchwork
Good afternoon (almost)! I hope that you are all doing great! It's a tough day here in fifth grade. We have spent most of the morning taking tests. I have felt three days behind since yesterday! I am starting to get caught up but it has been rough for me too!! And then because it's spring, school is the last thing on our minds! But we must focus and continue to plod along.
Today's card was inspired by others that I had seen on Splitcoast stampers. I have this top note die from Stampin' Up! and hadn't had a chance to use it. So, when I needed a project for shoebox club a few weeks ago I thought it was the perfect time to put it to good use! So, here is what I came up with! I just love this paper!! And it is a really fun card to make! Not hard at all!! I took the advice of others - Cut a 5" x 3 3/4" piece of cardstock. Then punch 12 squares of designer paper with the 1 1/4" square punch. Then glue all the squares onto the piece of cardstock. Then run the cardstock with the designer paper face down through the big shot with the top note die. There you have it! Thanks for stopping by!
Card Recipe: Stamps- Simple Friendship; Paper- Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Urban Oasis designer paper; Ink- Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze; Accessories- Valet ribbon originals, gold brad, dimensionals, big shot, top note die, 1 1/4" square punch
