Ways to Use It- Corners

Todays challenge was to decorate your corners using things like brads, paper piercing, etc but not using standard corner punches. I saw this corner decorating tip in the current CTMH book and have been wanting to try it but kept putting it off so today was perfect for it. Take a 2" sq piece and found in half twice creating quarters. Fold two corners in to the middle fold to create the corners shown. I used eyelets and 1/4" ribbon from Ribbons and Bows Oh My on mine.

Okay for the rest of the card now...I just got this ice cream set from CTMH I think its retired now its called I Scream. Just imagine the ice cream is closer to the glass! LOL! I just couldnt get it right! I colored the ice cream and glass w/prisma pencils and blended w/gamsol. I applied Crystal Stickles on the ice cream. The cs is textured cs I got from Walmart. The DP was my inspiration and starting point for this card. It was in a slab from Paper Studio. It reminds me of Dippin Dots. You know the ice cream! So thats how my card was born. The hardest thing was finding cs to match the colors in the DP!

Paper: Bashful Blue, textured cs-Non SU, WW, DP-Paper Studio from HL

This is a terrific card! I love the crystal stickles on the ice cream. And I knew it was Dots when I saw it! :D

I really like the idea of the corner too.

By the way, the card you sent Asela is wonderful! I absolutely love the colors and your work with the prismacolors.
