Day Two of the Daisy Doodles Showcase


Ok, so the deal was to use the $1 bargain bin images at Daisy Doodles. Ok, so I goofed...I used one of the School Time images, so sorry. There it was sitting all by itself in my Picasa album and it just never dawned on me that it was in a $3 set. But I like this card so much I just had to show it off. It was an extremely simple card that took just minutes to make if you do not count the time it took the Glossy Accents to dry. Inserted the apple image in my Word program, copy and pasted four times, changed the sizes of the apples, then ran it through the Cuttlebug folder, used the border punch, colored and applied the glossy effects. ADD ribbon and voila!!!!
Now that does sound easy...right?
I could have left out the embossing folder part and made it all that more easy...just an idea.
The School Time set is $3 but there are six images in the set. If you do the math and divide the six images into the price...the apple image is ONLY 50 cents. Way less than the price of a $1 bargain bin!!!
I call it my shopping math....HeeHee
You may call it your crafting budget math...LOL
