1 + 1 = 1 Card

Last Monday Kazan's Sketch 19 was posted over at 2 Sketches 4 You. A lovely new sketch, and of course I wanted to play along again. Yesterday a new challenge was posted on the Card-A-Licious blog. The challenge was to create a card using 3 patterned papers and orange letter stickers. I combined both challenges and created this card for my mom's sister who will be celebrating her birthday tomorrow. Using 3 different patterned papers is not a problem for me (not at all...*wink*), but I didn't have any orange letter stickers in my stash. Fortunately I have a die-cutting machine, many alphabets dies and self-adhesive cardstock so I made the letter stickers myself.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, DCWV Patterned paper: Scenic Route Tools: Sizzix Big Shot, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Sizzix Flower Die, Martha Stewart Scalloped Dot Edge Punch, QuicKutz Alphabet Studio Skinni Mini, sewing machine Button: Rusty Pickle Other: ribbon, twine

That's all for today. I am off to run errands before I have to pick up the girls from school.

Have a wonderful day!

I don't think I have any orange stickers either. Oh, maybe some orange chipboard letters-- they're HS and old!
