Papertrey July Blog Hop!



It's Blog Hop time for fans of Papertrey Ink! This month's challenge was to use office supplies in making your project. I knew I wouldn't get my July release goodies in time to use them for this card, so I went with what I had: I used PTI's Woodgrain Impression Plate to impress the card front, and then used some ink to go over it and emphasize the impression. I wanted to go for a desk look. Next I made a little file folder and teeny pieces of paper to go in it. I used Library Ledger to make the little papers. Finally, I used some ruler ribbon from my stash and stapled it on with my tiny attacher, and anchored everything with a swirly paper clip. This is certainly outside my box and I loved making it! Happy Hopping everyone!
