This week, Nance Leedy is hosting a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge for The Paper Players – pick any three across, down or diagonally. So much fun! I needed to make a “thank you” card yesterday, so I chose the bottom three – Patterned Paper, Ribbon and Purple. Here’s my card for this week’s challenge:
- Lining it Up. The stamped image here is the combination of two stamps – both from Merry Everything. I used my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker to outline the “to/from” stamp and stamped it on Whisper White. I then stamped “Thankful for You” in Blackberry Bliss, using my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig to line it up perfectly inside the borders. It touches the edges a bit, but it looks good to me.
- Punching it Out. The sentiment is punched out with the Note Tag punch – just as it was meant to be. I then punched the end of a slightly-less-than-2″ strip of Blackberry Bliss with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. The Note Tag punch out fits nicely over the hole left from the tag topper. I then trimmed the bottom of the strip and rounded the corners with the Project Life Corner Rounder.
- Wrapping it Up and Backing it Up. The challenge calls for ribbon, but I chose to not create a bow for a very clean look. I wrapped the 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon three times around the Blackberry Bliss band, adding a nice graphic look to this design. Since I popped up the Designer Series Paper Stack panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I backed the DSP with a piece of card stock to add sturdiness.
