Today I broke out. I have been a stamper for 14 years plus and today I am stamping my first non-standard size card. Can you believe it? When I finished the card, I was finished!
Today I'm bringing back the pleats for the Handstamped Sentiments Challenge #123. The challenge is to add pleats to a card. Here is what I came up with:
This reminds me so much of a bathing suit I wore when I was about 3 or 4 years old. It's the first bathing suit I ever remember wearing and I absolutely loved it because it had a ruffled skirt. But I'm off subject. I told you I broke out- this card measures 3 1/4 x 3 1/2". I had originally planned on putting it on the front of a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card but I just couldn't do it- this is where I wanted it to be so I made it a card. The bee is in the new Bug Me stamp set- so cute! The words are from the new Made for you stamp set. I think you will see a lot of the words from Made for You- it has just 3 stamps but they are the most useful of words at a great price point. Check it out here.
To make the pleats I pulled out the Simply scored tool and scored at 1/2", 1", 1 1/2", 2 1/2", 3", etc until I had the pleats I needed. The strip was 1 1/2" wide. I used Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black cardstock and Basic Black ink.
