Hey, let's see how many of you can guess what this is.
Give up? It's part of a milk jug. The part that is usually punched out where your fingers go through the handle. If you see any milk gallons that still have them attached, break them off and save them. They are great to use as bone folders! LOL! No kidding though, they're terrific for scoring and creasing your cardstock. I see a lot of them on the floor in the grocery store or in the parking lot.
Now, on to today's card. I really like how it turned out even though there are some parts of this card I wish I'd done differently.
The tree is from a Unity stamps set called Friendship Love Miracles. I stamped it in Close To Cocoa ink and cut it out with a nestabilitie circle. Then I used a little leaf punch I got at the Dollar Tree and punched out several leaves to glue on to the tree. I then cut out a scalloped circle and pierced holes in each scallop. I picked out some coordinating designer paper and cut out four 2" squares and mounted them on a piece of cardstock. Then I picked out some white rub on stitches by Martha Stewart. This is where my trouble started. The stupid rub ons rubbed on, but then some of them didn't stay on! So aggravating! I went back and rubbed more down to fill in the missing spots, but only succeeded in pulling more off. Grr! I finally gave up and just filled in with a white gel pen. Let's say I'm not too happy with the Martha Stewart line right now!
I punched out a scalloped border and mounted it on the bottom. I wish I had extended it out to the ends of the light green cardstock, but I only went to the ends of the two squares. You don't notice it as much with the ribbon tied around the bottom though.
I mounted the tree on pop dots. I really like it and want to do another in fall colors!
Okay, remember that tomorrow is card give away day, so be sure to come back and see what it is. Thanks for looking!
