I thought this would be a good card for my husband's 15 y.o. who recently upped his grades in an effort to be eligible to get his drivers permit. It'll be fun when he's finally driving!
White cardstock, 5x5". Arrows from Graphically Speaking cart cut from black Bazzill Basics cardstock at 4x1.5". Scrap paper backing.
This week's theme for the LIM challenge was "Masculine." I find it so hard not to ink the edges of my creations, striving for a true CAS card. Sometimes the Spartan effect can be so powerful. So I decided to draw a border with my fine black Sharpie.
Well, wouldn't you know it. On the back side of my ruler was some leftover black StazOn ink! Aaarrgghhh! So now my "clean" card has a black smudge on it. I should have left it all alone. I'm gonna come up with some cover-up, but I'm gonna let it percolate for a while. Plus, I want my submission to follow the LIM challenge guidelines.
I popped the arrows up on foam tape.
I just scored the most fabulous deal. I bought a brand new Graphically Speaking cart for just $17! They may be retiring this one is my guess. One of my fave places for supplies is Oh My Crafts! I also scored the Stretch Your Imagination cart. Two carts for around $36 total, including shipping. Such a deal! http://www.ohmycrafts.com/
As you can see, I can't take credit for any originality on the card. This is pretty much the very same cut out of the booklet. I used my Gypsy for all cuts so the words would be embedded in the arrows.
I found that I had lots of ideas for "gender neutral" cards, and this cart will be great for any card, any occasion. I have some time to play so I'm gonna see what else I can come up with for this theme. Stay Tuned.
