Pinch Proof Card


Hello and Happy St. Patrick's Day a little early!!

I am Pinch Proof today over at She's A Sassy Lady!


I went to a crop and learned a few tricks with my CTMH Artiste cartridge.



This stamp set (Perfect Fit - Frames 2) coordinates with some cuts on the Artiste cartridge.  It tell you the exact measurement of each image to coordinate with the stamp.

I chose the square-ish shape and cut some out of white cardstock at 2.5 inches.

I actually cut out several of each shape and put them with my stamp set for future use!!  But for today's card, I used the square-ish one.


Next, I used a Stampin' Up stamp set (borrowed from my friend Jenny) for the circle image and the inside sentiment.

I stamped the Pinch Proof stamp on white cardstock and used my Fiskars 1" punch to punch it out.  I inked the edges with the same green.

I stamped my cut image with green ink.

I wrapped the image with some orange twine for a color contrast.

I pop-dotted the circle image to the center of the shape.

I used some green stickles on the shamrock and a couple of gold gems on two corners.

I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock, trimmed it and inked the edges.

I used a 3x6 kraft cardstock card base, folded in half.


Here is my Pinch Proof card - I hope it works as I don't like getting pinched!!!

I hope you have a wonderful March!!

I am also entering this over at Craftin Desert Diva's!!
