I know right. Paper crafting? What's that? I haven't even touched my paper cutter since I made thank you notes for baby shower gifts in October. My baby girl decided she would come a couple weeks early (THANK YOU, JESUS!), so I missed out on making Christmas cards.
Even so, when someone has a need for paper crafting, I like to help. You pretty much have to show up at my house to make that work though. That's what Laura did last night.
Laura (cake-decorating and paper-crafting Laura) needed to make favors for her brother-in-law's couples shower. The bride-to-be is an equestrian (is that the right term?), so the theme for the shower was "western." Laura made a freakin' kick-ass cake (which hopefully she will let me post a pic here). It has like, red bandana patterned fondant. And a belt buckle. It's awesomeness. Oh right. Paper.
So, I pretty much went through all of my baskets of Stampin' Up supplies, and realized that we were lucky enough to have all of the necessary ingredients for an awesome favor.
Here's what we came up with:
We used the Stampin' Up Top Notes die in the Big Kick for the main piece and stamped a paisley pattern with white pigment ink. A couple of punches and a handwriting font later, we were done. It's time's like these when I'm truly thankful for my craft shopoholism.
