Love you more than coupons....CTS#24

Hello everyone! I have another card to share today! This is based (loosely) on CAS(E) this Sketch #24:


Here's the inside:

and the sketch:


As soon as I saw this sketch, the only thing that came to mind was the vertical lines reminded me of a UPC code and the zig zag could be where a coupon started to get ripped out. LOL! Good thing Kim Hughes @ Paper Smooches can read my future mind! HA! I had the stamp set that was perfect for my vision! Instead of ripping the coupon, I stamped, colored and fussy cut the scissors. I used an X-Acto knife and cut the corner and adhered the scissors to look as if they started to cut out the coupon. (I curled the corner a bit too!) This is another sketch that I'm sure to be using again. I already have a few more ideas and will make those into cards soon!

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment! I love hearing from you!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
