Continued...

I've been working on a Christmas card order for the last two days and desparately needed to make something "new".

I decided I should finish the altered band aid box and had some idea of what I wanted to do next. I pulled out my boxes of stamps that have friendship verses and bible verses in them and went to work.

I cut several small cards to fit in the box and rounded the corners then I stamped a friendship verse on one side in Basic Brown and a bible verse that fit the sentiment on the other side. That was easier to do than I thought it might be.

Next I used the swirl from Season Of Joy and stamped it on each card using Brilliance Pearlescent Jade ink, then again with Creamy Carmel and the flower from Seeing Spots in Cranberry Crisp.

I was going for an aged look so I pulled out my Stampin' Up! Linen background stamp and inked it up with Sahara Sand and stamped each of the cards front and back. I next took a sponge and Creamy Carmel ink pad and sponged around the edges of each card front and back. Ah, now we're gettin' there!

Next I scored a couple scraps of Confetti Tan, Jade, and Nut Brown card stock and punched them with the Stampin' Up! Round Tab punch and attached them randomly to the tops of my finished cards. I really like the way this project turned out and I can't wait to give it to my friend!

Happy stampin'!
