WTC229 - Office Supplies & My 1 Year Anniversary on Etsy

Today's challenge over on SCS was to create a card using office supplies. How fun! The supplies I used on my card are the brass fastener (technically a brad but they were in my office supplies, not my craft supplies), the staple for the ribbon on the tag, and the little pocket that the tag fits inside is actually a normal old envelope that I sealed and then cut to make a pocket. I haven't been making many of the 5.5 x 5.5 cards lately because I'm out of envelopes, but I needed a bit more room to work on this card so I went big. Maybe I'll get brave later and make an envelope. Or maybe I'll just order more! LOL.

Card recipe:
Stamps: Stampin' Up!
Paper: All K&Co.
Ink: Colorbox black & ZIG Markers
Accessories: SU photo corner punch, MS lace border punch, SU flower punch, brass fastener, ribbon, staple, white envelope, ripple scissors

Oh, and before I forget - I've got some news about my shop on Etsy! In August, I will be celebrating my 1 year anniversary with Etsy! How exciting is that? When I started up the shop it was kind of an experiment - a "let's see what I can do with this" sort of thing, but it's really taken off and exceeded my expectations. Sooooooo I am going to celebrate my success with a sale the week of August 23-29 (my official anniversary is that week) and weekly drawings for free cards. The free cards will be advertised here on my blog so stop by weekly to see what's up for grabs!

Sue :o)
