The Ants Go Marching
I was messing about with my Cuddlebug and discovered I could emboss paper with a piece of plastic canvas (sandwich A plate, B plate, plastic canvas, paper, Spellbinder’s rubber mat, B plate), so then I designed a card for this week’s Stampin’ Sisters in Christ challenge using an ant (Rubber Stampede) and watermelon (Posh) for summer birthdays or as an invitation to a barbeque. I cut several pieces of plastic canvas to fit an A2 card and made this one slightly smaller for the inside, so I could showcase the ants marching around the outside of my card, then colored the embossed image with a fingertip sponge. Engage your imagination, pretend it’s a picnic tablecloth. Of course, then I had to add a few flyspecks (Stampin’ Up) to the background as well! *smile* The scallop lace and border around the sentiment (Hero Arts) are by Stampin’ Up. And I pleated my paper with my Score-it Mini!
