A Sense of Time, Sincere Salutations
Finally, the actual Make & Take we did. Using the stamping off technique, several cogs were stamped on the card front in Close to Cocoa. The clock face was stamped in Bravo Burgundy and cut out. A partially stamped second image of the second hand dial punched out with a 1" circle punch had a brad attached through its dial and raised on dimensionals and overlaid with corresponding image on large clock face.
Using a stampamajig, the solid stripe mini background image from the new mini was stamped with versamark on to Bravo Burgundy card stock and adhered to card base as pictured above. With the paper snips, a 1/4" slot was cut on the fold flush with the top of the Bravo Burgundy strip in order to thread the grosgrain ribbon through. The ribbon wrapped around from back to front with the ends meeting and adhered behind the clock face.
A sentiment was stamped, and a V-shape cut on the right hand side was made then the paper "curled" and edges inked in Chocolate Chip then attached below the Clock Face to complete the card.
Using the same stamping off technique, the cogs were stamped in Close to Cocoa randomly on the inside of the card. "Best Wishes" was stamped on the inside also in Chocolate Chip.
