Susan's Saga

Bingo!


I made a card for the Sisterhood of Scrap challenge talked about on Pearl's blog. Find out how to download your own Bingo Cards at Pearl's blog. Now I have not played Bingo more than a handful of times in my life, but a Bingo card sure makes an interesting greeting card addition! I added a hidden message for the recipient on the orange tag behind the card. That's a recycled ring pull from a softdrink can on the tag with some ribbon and some recycled buttons from my stash on the Bingo card. I blinged up the 'Bingo' word with some Crystal Effects. All the lettering and doodling has been done by hand with various felt and gel pens. I used my Crop-a-dile to set the eyelets and a pair of deckle edged scissors to cut the top.
Cardstock is all from the Bold Bright range by Stampin' Up!

Wow Susan what a fab card, the fantasy film i have used on my butterfly is done by firstly cut out the colours you require, ink up the stamp you want to use with staz on, put the fantast film on the stamp put some grease proof paper over the top then run the iron over it on a medium heat just for a few seconds then just cut round the in my case butterfly and put on your card.

the hidden message is just a great idea i once made a bingo bday card for a friends 65th and she loved it as a bingo player it was very apt.
