Hey there - I'm back to redeem myself at Let's Squash It!! where I failed to read the fairly large print in the challenge post. I hastily read only the title and copied the banner that said to sand it. Well, you're to sand it alright, but must use an embossing folder with numbers or letters. OK - out with my previous card that contained neither and on to something new for Challenge 12!
Supplies: Paper - Echo Park Dots & Stripes;
Paper Studio red A2 card; Tim Holtz Jewel Kraft Metallic
Embossing Folder - Sizzix 3D Happy Birthday
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints 26 (retired)
Stamps - Hero Arts It's Your Day &
Birthday Sayings (both retired)
Most of my embossing folders aren't with me at present so I didn't think I had anything with a number around. Then Gail pointed out it could be letters too. LOL - just bought a new 3D folder last week when I was doing a paper search at Hobby Lobby. Also bought another embossing folder with the cut feature but it contains neither a # nor a letter...too bad. I also found a few glimmer plates on clearance, practically free!! Luckily I resisted buying one I already own....
For today's card, I die cut three MFT balloons and embossed them with the birthday folder, then sanded. Added to some striped paper on an A2 card, along with the strings and bow. It looked a bit bare so I stamped some party words on there - done!
Sorry again Gail, Jo & Alice for my error - hope this one works at Let's Squash It!! I'm also adding this to the current NBUS challenge since my embossing folder is new. I can also add to the current Watercooler Wednesday Challenge All About Occasions. Thanks to all for fun challenges - I'll try to read more carefully next time I enter one. Wish me luck!!
Thanks for stopping by & have a crafty day!!
