Comment Candy



I have comment candy.
Isn't this image sweet? It is called CATERPILLAR SWING and it is a new digital image from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS that will be available April 15th. He was so fun to color and create with.
MY COMMENT CANDY
You can win this digital image free by playing.
1. Leave a comment on this post telling me the brand of your favorite Paper Trimmer by the end of the day on April 14th
2.I will draw a random winner from the comments on April 15th and post the winner.
3. That person will have 3 days to get back to me before I draw a new winner.
What I did: I used Microsoft Publisher 2007.
I worked with a blank A4 portrait template.
I clicked on insert, clicked on text box from pull down menu. I made the text box 4 1/2 x 11 on the left side.
I clicked on insert, clicked on picture from pull down menu, clicked on from file from next pop up menu. I found the file I saved and clicked on the sentiment I wanted from the caterpillar swing file and clicked on insert. I then moved it and sized it from the sides and corners to the bottom left corner. I clicked on print preview to make sure it was what I wanted.
So not to waste paper I repeated the last step by to retrieve the caterpillar image and placed it on the unused top right corner. Then printed. I cut the card to 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half so the sentiment was on the front in the right bottom corner.
I used my coud template to sponge clouds all over the front of card. Then I cut another piece from the same paper to 1 3/4 x 2 3/4. I sponged it with clouds as well and adhered to paper with dimensionals. I colored my caterpillar and cut out then adhered with dimensionals to the piece I just put on the card. Pretty simple.

Oh my goodness, you make simple look soooooo good! It's fabulous the way you used the cloud template, I've seen it done a few times but this is definitely the best application I've seen so far - your ideas are genius!

Thanks for sharing your creativity :D
