I'm groaning very loudly while I write this post! I just got home from working a seven day (in a row) stretch at work. Some of the days were 12 hours long, on my feet! I'm exhausted. I, at least, have tomorrow off, but...I have a dentist appointment! What a way to spend my day off, yuck!
I finished this card yesterday, but didn't have time to post it before I left for work. It's a combination Labor Day Card and a 9/11 Commemorative Card. I cased it from this card I found blog surfing one night.
Instead of using an edge puncher, I used my Die-Namics Scallop Ribbon Border and cut one of the scallop edges off. Machine stitching was added on to the border strips before they were adhered to the card base. After I adhered the strips on, I machine stitched all around the the card base.
I cut a square of blue cardstock and machine stitched around the edges. Paper punched stars were added with matching ivory buttons glued to the centers.
I puffed up the scallop border a little, just to give it a little extra dimension.
