The good news: I can use this card for all four Dare to Get Challenges posted yesterday. Bad news: it took me all afternoon to make it! Good news: I enjoyed every minute of it!! Sometimes you just gotta pull out all the stops and cut up some fancy paper.
I had some Martha ribbon that matched, so I used that over a strip of paper border punched from DCWV Luxury Stack. I really like how the Kiwi Kiss makes the whole thing pop; I just happened to have a scrap on my desk and decided to try it. I also used PTI Text Styles in Old Olive at the top and bottom. After cutting out and adhering the letters, I poked a hole and threaded some PTI twine through. I cut it to a point and it gets a little fuzzy build-up when I started pulling it, but I just kept pulling and the fuzzies came through, so I didn't have to do too much haircutting (my orderly math side: cannot handle too much fuzziness on my twine or any extra-long fuzzies!). I colored a rhinestone with a pink copic and added it to the bottom of the "S." The card is 5 1/2 by 5, there was just too much yumminess to be restricted to 4 1/4 (but not enough for 5 1/2 square).
I'm so glad I found some fellow Mad Men fans! Did y'all see Jon (we're on a first name basis) on 30 Rock? I'd bring him a Diet Raspberry Fanta any time! Thanks for all the warm-fuzzy* comments!
*these are the type of fuzzies you want to have, not like those evil twine fuzzies.
