Live Once

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a fabulous start to your week. Mine could have been better but there is always tomorrow! We have another baseball game tonight and it looks like it could storm. Hopefully it will hold off until later.

Today's card is a sketch that I found. I wish I could remember where. My notes are at home and I am still at work. If I find it I will let you know. I loved how it turned out! Very simple!! I seem to be into these very simple cards lately. I had a question about setting the grommets. Here's what I do: I use my 'squishy' mat from my Crafter's Tool Kit and lay my paper on top of that. Then I take the grommet (large or small) and push it through the paper into the mat. Then I turn my paper over and use my bone folder to push the prongs toward the center of the grommet being careful not to push them too far in (so they don't poke back through to the other side). I hope that made sense. I am very tired right now. Anyway, let me know if you have any other questions. I think these grommets are one of my new favorite embellishments! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a nice card, Deb! I've not seen anything like it before using this set. I really like the small grommet in the flower! TFS!

  2. Lovely card! Perhaps you saw the weekend sketch challenge on Jenn Balcer's blog? You could win a Splitcoast mug if you leave a link to your blog post!
