365 Cards Days #136 and #137

I think that posting my cards every other day is working best for me so I may continue to do it.

Yesterday's challenge #136 on 365 cards was to create a card using the colors black, white, and red. I made one card that was stretching the rules a bit. Then I decided that I didn't like it anyway and created another one.

Today's challenge #137 was to create a card by binding something. When I saw "Bind It" as the challenge title, I thought of my newest toy, the "Bind It All"! I bought the bulk discount wires from Bonnie's Best and, as the Zutter website states, they have less rings on them than the Zutter brand so you end up with three on the end. I used those "leftovers" on my card. I adhered my patterned paper onto some salvaged cardstock and adhered hot pink paper onto the inside. I used a snowflake shaped brad on the round tag and stickles on my snowmans little heart. I also used blue and white polka dot ribbon to finish off my binding.

Have a Scrappy Day!!

Great cards Alicia. Don't you just love your Bind It All?? I adore mine. I have the older dark pink one and I think I might have to get the light pink one now as I have just laybyed the carrybag and the light pink Round It All. I love to make journals and I teach it as well. Have fun with it Alicia.
