Dare to be Darling: Kazan's Sketch 3
Schwooo! I barely made it back in time today with a card featuring a retiring stamp set! I don't know where this day went! Well, I know some of it went on the sofa, but a lot of it went on cleaning and organizing my stamp room, because I could NOT stand it one minute longer! lol! And wait! Some of it went to me cooking dinner! Yes! I surprised dh and cooked my first meal since I've been on summer break: spaghetti, yummy! (Well, I've cooked frozen pizzas and made a few salads, does that count?!) Don't feel too bad for him, he has had cookies, brownies, banana nut bread, etc.
But I digress! This card is made with the retiring set Dare to be Darling. This poor set never got a lot of love from the stamping community, but I've always loved it. It was set up for failure in this current catalog, I just went through twice looking for it and couldn't find it. (I confess, I could not remember the name!)
For the card layout, I used Kazan's Sketch 3. Have you been over to the 2 Sketches 4 You blog? Great stuff and sketches! They have sponsors and give away prizes, so go check it out and give it a try!
In case you're wondering about the 4 circle openings on the card...I punched out 4 circles from computer paper with the 1 1/4" punch. Then I stuck the circles down on top of my patterned paper with temporary Mono adhesive. Once I had them arranged and placed evenly, I punched right on top of them again with the 1 1/4" punch. Easy peasy! Let me know if you have any other questions!
