Wanna make the easiest card ever? Well I got a pack of Cotton Scraps Crafty Secrets from Hanna Stamps! They looked so cool on-line and I thought what the heck, I’m game. So tonight Jeff and I watched a movie, one of his favorites “Independance Day” OMG! to have a President like that eh? Actually risking his life for the world. I know its just a movie, but still. So as the movie ended, I thought..well crapola, I did not stamp at all today, I did laundry and cleaned, and even made meatloaf for supper, so I thought tonight was the night to try out my Cotton Scraps, and by cracky this was easy peasy.
Neat eh? It looks almost canvas-y!
So I used my oval nestabilities to cut out the image (I was not sure if it would work, and it did), and then I peeled off the paper backing and glued it down to the scalloped basic black cardstock, for some reason I was thinking it was going to be sticky on the back and it was not…ummm…now that I READ the packaging I see that it does say to add adhesive after you peel off the paper. (I wonder if I could just leave it on the paper and make the card…hmmm….I have 5 more images, and 3 greeting images to practice on) I have a sewing machine on my wish list so I can sew Jeff’s ripped jeans…NOT! so I can sew on my cards! YES!!! I love seeing all the real sewing online. Jeanne Streiff is amazing at it. I would definitley need to practice, can you imagine getting a card all the way done and then messing it up by sewing it wrong….yikes!
Anyway after some quick paper cutting, some faux stitching and a little rub-on punched out, voila!
