Friends for Heifer - Take 2!
As you can see I have created another card using the same stamps as the card I created on Tuesday. This time I just used a different layout, I have been wanting to create a card using this layout for a few months now and finally got around to actually doing it.
I ended up making this card at 1am Wednesday morning ..... I had just signed off chatting to a few friends I chat to on SCS saying it is now 1am so I am going to bed. I turned off the computer and had every intension of going to bed but then this idea jumped into my head and I just had to make this card .... I decided to keep to the exact color scheme as my previous card .... at 1am that is a safer option to do as it made it fairly quick to create ... change the color scheme and I could have been up all night. ;)
Once I had the panels on the card and everything cut out and colored .... I left it there for the night and came back to it in the morning to add the verse using my word window punch. The verse is actually too long to just punch out using this punch so I just stamped the verse on a long piece of card which is the same width as the word window punch and just fed in each end to get the rounded shape I needed.
I wanted to add brads to this card but at the time I didn't have the color I wanted ... fortunately my friend came over that day with some brads she had purchased for me .... I have been looking everywhere for chocolate and I think we have finally found them ... these brads aren't the chocolate ones .... they are actually a coated copper and will do for the time being but we know now we can get the chocolate so will be ordering some.
