I'm still working through the cool gifts I received last fall and Christmas, and today's card features the SU tag punch sent to me by Audrie, aka girlgeek. I wanted to make a white-on-white card, and ended up making a white-on-white-on-white-on-white card instead. That's a lot of white, and a little bit of cherry cobbler thrown in, you know, just for fun.
The letters are from PTI's mini alphabet called Simple Alphabet. This alphabet is a pain in the butt to use because the letters are SO SMALL and lining them up perfectly is almost impossible. Since it's such a clean alphabet, each little spacing bobble shows up like a neon sign, at least to my AR/OC eyes. (Whimsical alphas are so much easier to work with as spacing is more forgiving.)
For this card, I stamped each letter on white card stock with plenty of space around it for punching, then centered each letter in the punch (turning the punch upside down to see where the letter was!), and punched. The l is still a little high, but it's nowhere near as noticeable as it would be if I'd stamped all four letters together.
If you're AR/OC enough, you can ALWAYS find a work-around to a problem.
And yes, if you are AR/OC enough, you start making Christmas cards in February. Just for fun!
