Paper Maniac Thursday - Thank You!!!

Thursday, August 5, 2010

Hi everybody!  Today is Paper Maniac Thursday on my blog.  This week on the Paper Manaic Blog the Design Team has been expressing their gratitude to all of you that read the blog and shop in the store.  We are all so grateful for you all.

For my card today, I started with a kraft base.  The finished card size is 4.25" x 4.25".  The patterned paper is from the Indian Summer collection by Basic Grey.  I trimmed it to a 3.75" x 3.75" square and then used a large label die (2nd to the largest) to cut out the center of the square.  Then I cut a square of light brown card stock to 4" x 4" and used a smaller label die (3rd to the largest) to cut out the center of that square.  I adhered the patterned paper to the light brown paper, making sure everything is in line.  I roughed up the edges with a paper distresser and then faux stitched along the inside edge of the patterned paper (this is hard to see in the photo).  Then I applied that finished layer to the card base with foam dimensionals, adhered the rub-on to the card base, stamped my sentiment and applied the pink rhinestones.  When you are stamping on top of a rub-on the ink will take longer to dry.  Be careful not to smear the ink.
Here's a close-up so you can see the dimension.  Paper Maniac has all of their Spellbinders, Tim Holtz and Cuttlebug Embossing Folders on sale this week.  Check out the deep discounts!

Thank you so much for visiting today.  We are so thankful for you!
