Shine Bright Card and Football Begins
Many of us (including me!) are really into pocket scrapbooking these days. I love it! Close To My Heart's Picture My Life (PML) line is so perfect. I have loved using PML cards to create beautiful scrapbook projects. The thing is, when I'm done, I always have a few cards left. Hmmm...what to do with them? How about make greeting cards? This standard (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") card was created using 2 left over PML cards, a tad bit of Cocoa Cardstock, a bit of Boardwalk Washi Tape, and a couple of Durables Triangle Studs. The "shine bright" piece was a 3" x 4" card that I just cut the edges off to make about a 2 1/2" x 4" piece. The background was a 4" x 6" card that I cut down to 4" x 5 1/4". I then mounted them on the front of a standard Colonial White card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). Get creative! Think outside the box and your left over PML cards have endless possibilities!
Check out the products used list at the end of my post, complete with photos and links for your convenience. Quick, easy, and a masculine masterpiece!
I am posting this card today in honor of the first day of Southern Utah Fall Football Camp for our son, Tannon. One month from today we play our first game at Utah State University. Go, T-Birds! Go, Tannon! Shine bright, Tannon...and kick some trash while you're at it!
