FM29 That's A Wrap

Time for another edition of the Friday Mashup. I tell ya, I've got fences on the mind. There was a flower and picket fence card a few weeks back, and now, today's challenge with a belly band. Luckily, I've been wanting to combine the Out on the Limb stamp with a fence, so that worked perfectly.


So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project featuring "A Belly Band".
  2. Or Make a project using "Twine".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project "Using Twine with a Belly Band".
*Belly Band: A strip of card stock (or you can use ribbon) wrapped around the middle of a card like a belt. It is made slightly loose around the card so it can be slid off to read the text beneath or inside.

I've been using every opportunity to test drive the new Simply Scored tool. Love it!! Here I scored the backside of the fence, between every scallop. From there I lightly folded at the score line so I could sponge it for more definition.

Here's the card sans belly band.

Super fun challenge! Thanks Kim!
