Shopping our Stash #99 - All About Numbers!


So a challenge is sometimes SUPPOSED to be challenging, right? Shopping my Stash for numbers that were actually 'stash' was kinda hard. I just don't use them very often. Grad season to the rescue!

Supplies: AC textured black cardstock; AC puffy vinyl Thickers (from Barb!); Martha Stewart score board


I find graduation cards kind of challenging as well, so double score. And it's even appropriate for a Dreaded Man Card (as Tammy would call it!) To keep it simple but not boring, I scored three lines at the top & bottom of the black panel, and then adhered it with Scor-Tape at the very top & bottom, and foam tape underneath the numbers. It gives the scoring more dimension in real life. I also folded along the score lines several times to help give them more definition. 

This Shopping our Stash challenge is open until next Monday, May 6th - hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!

xoxo,
Jessi
