Today felt like the longest day at work EVER! There was absolutely nothing to do. I work at one of the Army schools, so normally we have tons of students and cadre to manage, but since we don't have any classes right now... I was SO BORED! By the time I got home, sat on the couch, took off my boots, and turned on Oprah, I had fallen asleep. The toughest days are the days when I don't do a thing. Why is that!? Anyhow, here's a simple card for today. I feel like a baby card is appropriate for my newly born blog. I absolutely love love love Basic Grey paper! If you don't then you're totally weird! This card is only three sheets of paper, a bit of ribbon, and a rub-on. Couldn't be any easier! Here's what I did: Since this is a standard A2 card, I scored a sheet of 8.5" x 5.5" yellow Bazzill card stock in half. I then trimmed a piece of the rocket patterned paper to 4" x 5.25" and rounded the corners with my Stampin' Up! corner rounder. The polka dot patterned paper was then trimmed to 1.5" x 5.25". After trimming these two pieces I used my Color Box chalk ink in Blue Lagoon to distress all of the edges of the patterned paper. After adhering the polka dot paper to the rocket paper, I secured the knotted green and white striped ribbon (found in my ribbon stockpile) and secured the loose ends behind the patterned paper before I glued the entire thing to the card front. Finally I added the "Baby" rub-on from Scenic Route Paper Co. And...that's it!
