Woot woot! Two hops, one day!
Check out all the blogs for World Card Making Day here.
For the Fiskateers Orange Blog Hop, if you have come from http://inkblotsbytrd.blogspot.comyou are in the right place. This is a stop on the Orange Blog Hop where members of Fiskateers, a community sponsored by Fiskars, is sharing their passion for crafting.
Today I am sharing a fun little card I made for my niece's upcoming 2nd birthday using my Fiskars trimmer, Epiphany Crafts tools, and some Clearsnap goodies!
For this card I used some KaiserCraft papers that had blocks printed on them. The wire guide on the Fiskars trimmer I used to cut apart the blocks showed me exactly where the blade would cut me paper, allowing for precision cuts with no scissor-trimming needed. I love how much time to accuracy of the Fiskars trimmer saves me!
See how precise those cuts are!! No edges from neighboring papers on my pieces :) I used a ColorBox Chalk Petal Point Option Pad to ink the edges of each piece in a coordinating color.
I created a party hat from a scrap of paper and added Sparkle Fibers to the base of the hat with Clearsnap's Glue Gloss.
And here is my final card, ready to give!!
