I can't believe how quickly the weeks are speeding by. Before I know where I am it's Wednesday again & time for another challenge over at Crafty Creations.
This week the theme is
and has been set by my fellow DT Claire.
I decided to go for our very first mode of transport 'the pram' & inked up my Sugar Nellie Daisy with pram stamp for the first time . . . . shame on me. The stamp was a pressie from my lovely & crazy friend Nicola with a few other SN stamps. Thanks Nic!.
I came across this card while blog hopping & landed on Frances's blog. She has a link to the blog she first found the zigzag card & has converted the measurements, you can find the post here. This is a complete case of Frances's card but I liked everything about it so hope she doesn't mind.
My first attempt at his style of card ended up in the bin after I attempted to cut the slits using my craft knife & plastic ruler. I ended up with a very wavy slit & big chunks cut out of the ruler!! very messy. I thought to myself . . . . . I must treat myself to one of those cutters that can cut slits as apposed to the guillotine I already have. Now I admit I probably have one of the messiest craft rooms but in all the clutter my very first cutter caught my eye!! it's been in the corner of my craft room waiting to either give it away or sell it as I haven't used it for years & guess what!!!!???? it's exactly what I needed to cut the neatest slits for my zigzag card . . yah!! It was so easy to make & I'll definitely be making more of this style.
