The Love of a Lifetime


Ok, have you ever gotten a little punch happy? That happened to me tonight. And I have to be honest... it's all Taylor's fault. Remember how I said those lilypads on my Oh, Hoppy Day!!! card reminded me of Pacman? Well, that's where it alllll started. My mind has been working overtime since then and this is what I came up with.

I used my 1 1/2" circle punch on PacMan and Ms. PacMan. I used the ID tag punch for the ghosts, and trimmed each one about 3/4 of the way down, then used my scissors to cut notches for the bottoms. The eyes and dots are smaller circle punches too.

The sentiment is from the Feeling Groovy set over at Verve Stamps. I stamped it with my Craft White pad, and then tried to heat emboss it with clear EP to get it dry quick and the embossing process kind of disolved my ink. Very strange, but that's why the last word looks lighter. Live and learn!

Anyhow, I think it's cute! What do you think?

Details:
Stamps: Feeling Groovy (Verve Stamps)
Ink: Craft White
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Summer Sun, Pink Pirouette, Almost Amethyst, Bliss Blue, Whisper White, Basic Black
Other: Red Ribbon, Black marker (eyes on Ms./Pacman), Stampin' Pastels (her cheek), Clear Embossing Powder, 1 1/2" Circle Punch, 1/4" Circle Punch, ID Tag Punch, 1/8" Circle Punch
