Office Time

måndag 20 augusti 2012

Hi there! Hope you are all had a terrific weekend!
Today I made a card inspired by the Our Creative Corner Challenge, where they want us to use office supplies and the color red.
I looked around and found staples, the hole puncher, paper clips, brads, lace, stamps, a small envelope, tape, and some old hole strengthener (I don´t know if they have another name),white correction tape and the coding stamp that I use to register.
And what became of it? Well, along with papers from 7gypsies and some Tom Holtz stamps it became like this ...

I heat embossed the car with white embossing pouder. Then I used a bit of correction tape under the car and then wrote the text by hand with a black pen.
I wanted this card to be for a man, and my husband's favorite color is red so this is perfect.
I got to show the inside too.

think there's a clock at any office, therefore, there is also on my card. Though it looks a little worn out of course :)

Thanks so much for popping in today! Have a nice school start week!
Hugs, Birgit
