Ah, Whipper Snapper, it’s been a while!

I love my Whipper Snapper stamps soooo much!  It’s just about time to place an order – it will be so hard to choose which stamps to add to my collection.

The stamp I used on today’s card is my favourite image for making a “friend” themed card.  I used some soft papers from MME – the two smaller flags are actually cut right out of one of the pages from this paper pad – I made the larger flag but cutting a strip and punching it with a square punch that I rotated.  The angle was a little more extreme than I wanted so I trimmed some of the paper with scissors. (I know some people have dies that cut these flags but I usually just chomp out a piece with a square punch).

Since my image is so large, it was no trouble to add a HUGE button to the card – I find them difficult to use up sometimes but this card can definitely pull off such a large button.  The “thread” in the button is a couple of thin strips of the background paper.

I machine stitched around the edges of the paper as the card was a little plain and then I decided I might as well stitch around the image too. 

I’ll be back tomorrow with a Halloween post.
