The Grass border and Cloud squeeze punches are the latest additions to my crafty stash and I confess that I LOVE them BOTH!!!
As soon as I cut open the packs, I knew exactly what I was going to make. One of our nephews was turning five, so I punched out a bundle of ants using my LE Gettin' Antsy squeeze punch then took some brave pills in preparating for some heat embossing. My wonderful husband shares his mega heat gun with me, so it wasn't long before that 1800W of power had those ants flying, leaving a sticky black trail over the sheet of card that I was using as a protective worksheet. I don't heat emboss very often and it was super lucky that I was using the card sheet as it had lots of singed spots on it by the time I was finished and I dread to think what would have happened to the table or my precious craft mat if it wasn't there!!!
Anyway, getting back on track, I got three sheets of green cardstock and punched out six grassy layers to make the birthday card. Little kids like big cards, so this card was 4 3/4" by 12", just fitting in the envelope. I used the Cloud squeeze punch to make the fluffy icing for the top of a cupcake (for the ants to gobble) and my crimper to give the base a traditional patty pan appearance.
Hope you enjoy my grassy card as much as Thomas did :)
