A card by Amy!

Marelle Taylor Stampin' Up! AustraliaI thought it was about time you all had a card by Amy. Amy made this a while ago for her Grandad's birthday. Here she is to tell you how she made it:

I chose these colours myself, by just picking out some that I thought would look good together. I got the Pumpkin Pie paper and stamped Big Pieces with the Pumpkin Pie ink pad. Then I stamped Little Pieces on to the blue paper with the Blue Bayou ink pad and stuck that to the Old Olive paper. I used a plastic template and a pencil to mark 4 circles for my eyelets, and then made 4 holes with the Cropadile. I even set the eyelets myself! Then I and stuck that to the Pumpkin Pie paper. Then I got Whisper White and Real Red paper and stuck them together. Then I stamped 'to my' and 'wonderful' on it, and got a big and little piece and stamped them on it too and stuck that to my card. I stamped the alphabet in all the colours, and punched out squares to spell 'Grandad'. I punched a Photo Corner to go in the corner, and popped it up using Dimensionals. I hope you like my card!

Colours: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Blue Bayou, Real Red
Stamps: Big Pieces, Little Pieces, Wonderful Favourites, Alphabits
Other: 1/4" Circle Punch, Photo Corner Punch, Crop-a-dile, Red eyelets, Mat Pack

Isn't she clever? I hardly helped her at all with this one. She'll be taking classes in no time!
