Used Math to Make This Card

People, I had to use MATH to make this card!! And if you know me, you'd know that is problematic! It's a miracle I got through learning long division without a calculator. Actually, in my last job I had to use math. I pretty much just had to multiply, add, divide, etc. using a calculator, and would still get it wrong. Darn decimal points. Good thing there were smart people around me.

Trimmed out the XOX from the Reverse Confetti Big Notes set. Yes, I cut a stamp. Then I cut 5 strips of cardstock to exactly 3.75" x just a tiny bit more than 1". Using the seriously incredible MISTI, stamped XOX 5 times in Versamark and embossed in white. I'm about 3 years late to the ombre trend, but I still like it.

Adhered to a piece of 3.75" x 5" cardstock and then popped up the panel on an A2 card.

And then I said to myself, "now who is worthy of this card?"

MOOD WHEN DONE: I'm stamping like a crazy woman and ignoring the piles of crap accumulating in my stamp room and the dirt in the rest of the house. In other words, things are great.

Oh, gosh, math is so not my thing, but I have to use it for card making sometimes, too. It's one of the reasons I keep a ruler in my carousel. This turned out super! Very precise measuring. The way the blues intensify as it goes along seems to indicate love growing stronger. A good card for Mike. Maybe after he finishes decluttering and cleaning the house. Gee, that was my first order of business when I retired, too. Enjoy your stamping, Joan!
