Live in the Moment

I am teaching a card workshop this week and I love preparing for it. Here's a card with the You Rock paper and the special stamp set that only comes with the Gatherings on the Go kit. Cut your paper as follows:

8 1/2 by 5 1/2 white daisy paper folded in half
5 1/2 by 4 1/4 goldrush cardstock
3 1/4 by 5 1/2 outdoor denim cardstock
3 by 5 1/4 pattern paper
1 1/4 by 4 1/4 white daisy cardstock
1 by 4 1/4 outdoor denim cardstock
1 1/2 white daisy cardstock circle
Distress everything with outdoor denim ink.

Use your dry embossing tool and the groove in your trimmer to draw down some dry embossed lines on the left hand side of your goldrush cardstock, sand to reveal the white core.

Glue the pattern paper to the outdoor denim cardstock. Attach both to card about a 1/4 inch from the right side of the card.

Add white strip one inch from the bottom of the card as shown.

Glue outdoor denim strip across white strip.

Stamp "spirograph" stamp in goldrush in the middle of the circle.

Stamp Live in the Moment sentiment right in the center of the circle in outdoor denim.

Add the circle to the left hand side of the paper strips and put in two goldrush brads on the right hand side of the strips and you're finished. See how easy card making can be!
