BOYS BEST FRIEND

Hi, this is my card for the Challenge at Gingersnap Creations GS118 - Supply Challenge - Crimpers.


When was the last time you used your crimpers, since embossing folders came along?
Well I dug mine out and chose the wavy Marvy one.  Then I went searching for something creative to do with it.  I found this great tutorial on SCS here for this crimped diamond card.  It's pretty cool looking, and easy to do.

Card Recipe:

Paper - White card stock for the crimping
Striped from my stash
Stamp - Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers (old)
Dog paw print on button and Woof stamp is Cloud Nine
Sentiment is computer generated.
Ticket is Tim Holtz sponged with orange dye ink
Green Paper clips from the $ store.
Bakers twine - Pizzazz Aplenty

The Box of dog bones is a left over crimped box I saved from
last Christmas and dressed up to match the card, and the crimping sorta matches too!
Added a bag of dog bones for a gift for a little friend who just got a new puppy.

Here's a close up of the sentiment.  Took it off a dog calendar page, I love
what it says.........

Thanks for stopping by today.  Now get on over to the Gingersnap Creations blog and have a look at the design team creations for this challenge.

Until later.........

Your card is wonderful and your crimping is excellent. I had a hard time crimping as it always appeared crooked, so have not used mine for a long, long time.

Your blog is stunning today with those gorgeous trees throwing their shadow on the two sides of the screen. Marvellous!

You are so spot on about the crimpers-yet they look stunning on a card. Just like this one you created. How absolutely fabulous. Love it.
