Today's technique comes from something I saw on Pinterest that caught my eye. I don't know who posted the original idea so cannot thank anybody in particular for this one.
"Pretty Paper Piercing Technique"
paper piercing tool OR hat pin OR stickpin etc.
printer that prints in mirror mode (backwards text) OR
some fun foam scrap and stamp of choice
1) You can either: print text of choice in mirror mode on printer onto card stock in light ink
you can stamp onto fun foam scrap or solid rubber stamp and then onto card stock so it will
stamp in reverse.
2) pierce the card stock along printed or stamped lines and turn paper over to use,
3) Trim and embellish as desired.
My sample card uses a stamp by Hero Arts (it actually said "happy anniversary")
a word die by Memory Box (birthday)
designer paper by DCWV
bakers twine by Doodlebug
button from my stash
corner rounder by Creative Memories
large hatpin for piercing
*if you print in a draft mode or stamp with light colors it will not show on the reverse side of paper that you use*
Below is my simple sample:
Thanks for stopping!
