At first this was going to be a normal sized card so I cut my BG paper to size (A2) and then cut out my stamped image and started matting it and by the 3rd mat I realized oops ... It was too big to do any justice to the BG paper ... so I decided to make it a square card ... and that is where the trouble began hehehe ... you see it took me 3 times and 4 sheets of black CS to get this square card and well I still messed up ... I cut the card stock the wrong size the 1st mess up and then the 2nd mess up I cut two pieces of CS at the same time so I ended up with two black squares of paper that not a square card would make ... or so I thought ... I sat there thinking what in the heck would I do ... cut ANOTHER piece of CS and score it right .... or come up with some way to bind these wto pieces of CS together ... and I came up with the idea of using my double rectangle punch to go along the outside edge of the card and I started by tying just green ribbon in knots and that just was lacking so I added the salmon and blue ribbon and that was just right and then I put the card together and I LOVE THE FINAL product ... it's even cuter IRL! So anyways ... thanks for looking and reading : ) Have a GREAT day!
