So, I made a card today...
Actually, I didn't make THIS card today, but I did make a card today! This card is from an SCS challenge. You were to cut the side off a sealed envelope, then run the larger part through a crimper so it would slide into the smaller part. Then you make a little flat card for inside.
I used Wildflower Silhouettes. It's one of Anna Wight's newer sets from Whipper Snapper. I could color and stamp these flowers all day. They are not only beautiful, but forgiving. No perfection required here. Which makes them perfect for me.
The interesting thing I want to point out here is a punch technique I came up with all by myself!! I'm not saying someone else hasn't already done this. I'm saying I didn't learn it from someone else, I discovered it on my own. I'm referring to the scalloped edge. I made a scalloped edge with the slit punch as usual. Then I turned the scalloped edge into the punch, and punched out every other scallop. I thought it turned out pretty well! Maybe I'll do a tutorial on it some time!!
