Hey there! Sorry for the blog delay. After breaking his arm AGAIN on Thursday, Ian is feeling better (and went to school today, Yea!) but I am gearing up for ONE HECK of a busy week, so there was a WHOLE LOT of errands and chores to do this weekend.
I haven't done a Moxie Fab challenge in WAY too long! So I was glad I managed to get to this one! This is for the Square Sketch Challenge. I actually submitted some cards for this publication with the sketches, but I hadn't used this one yet. Here's the sketch:
1: Cut two identical squares of cardstock to 5".
2: Lay one square on top of the other, fully overlapping each other on a self-healing mat.
3: Using a metal ruler and an xacto knife to cut diagonal lines through BOTH pieces of paper.
4: Arrange and tape together on a scrap piece of paper (also 5" square). Pieces should fit together well if they were cut together.
5: Trim edges as needed.
For the sun, I cut an orange patterned paper into a circle, and matted it with a piece of textured Tangerine Tango cardstock. Then I used my heart punch to make the suns rays, by taping the hearts to the back of the circle. I did the same thing to make sun rays back on this card and on this page. The last thing was my stamping, which I did right onto the card in two places. I LOOOOOVE these stamps from Verve. :) They make me happy. :)
Well, that is all for me today, hope to see you here tomorrow when I unveil a fabulous NEW color challenge for colourQ! I am LOVING these colors for tomorrow! Hope you'll take a peek ;)
