Put a little ink in your day


Cheryl participated in a 3×3 card swap at Convention.  I’ve always liked that gift card size (and yes, we DO have envelopes – $7.50 for 40 Whisper White envelopes, #107309) but the quality of her swaps was mind boggling!  How could you get so much bang for the buck in such a tiny format?  I decided to put a little effort into finding out:

BFF It's Your Day 3x3

  • BFF and It’s Your Day stamp sets
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Riding Hood Red and Pear Pizazz Classic Ink Pads
  • Heart to Heart punch
  • Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon
  • Rhinestone Jewels
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots

The heart in the BFF set isn’t the exact shape of the hearts in the punch, but the middle-sized punch shape fits in the stamped image.  Everyone knows punching is preferable to hand cutting!!  And that little bit of ribbon is just folded in half with a mini glue dot sandwiched in the middle, and then stuck onto the card with another MGD (ha, and no, I was NOT drinking beer!)  The Stampin’ Dimensional does double duty; it gives the heart a little lift, and it creates a little space for the ribbon.

Making this card gave my heart a little lift too.  How about putting a little ink in your day today?
