I have a
It's a long post so be prepared.
First the Twofer
I had this old and well loved Stampin' Up! set out to do a card for my last class.
So When I saw the Twofer Challenge was
Often times I start with one direction for a card and end up scrapping that idea
and going another way. That was the case with this card.
It's an okay card for a guy, but I ended up with something a little different for the class.
After class the set was still out so I used the anchor for another card.
I stamped the anchors on some scraps of Neenah with blue ink and heat embossed
with clear embossing powder. I fussy cut them out and added them to a
Neenah panel that has Subtle embossing. A narrow strip of matching cardstock
divides the design from the sentiment.
As long as I had the set out, I went for a Threefer.
This anchor was stamped with Versamark and I used copper embossing powder on it.
My favorite is the blue anchor card. But I'll be using all of them.
Oh, and the class card...
They liked that I kept it simple.
