I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Four challenges in one card

I made this card this afternoon after seeing the great sketch on Clean and Simple Stamping. It gave me the idea to mask the circle and then stamp the border over. I've had border stamp for ages and not used (*hang head in shame*) As it was all stamped directly onto the card it was one layer. The edge of the card was punched with my 5in1 punch (which I have never used *another hangs head *) and I lined inside the card with black paper to make it "pop".

It fits the following challenges:-
  1. Oldie But Goodie #16 - Wedding or Anniversary
  2. Charisma Cardz #14 - Wedding or Anniversary
  3. Clean & Simple Stamping #135 - Sketch
  4. Less is More #10 - One Layer - Sentiment focus
SENTIMENT:
Clarity set from SECRET CRAFTER
BORDER:
My Paper world from SECRET CRAFTER
TOOLS:
5in1 punch
Cuttlebug
Circle nesties from SECRET CRAFTER
OTHERS:
Black paper and white card from stash
