I see inspiration for cards all over the place--- clothing patterns, table linens, and even Kleenex boxes. When I bought this box of Kleenex, I thought I could recreate the images using my stamps. I hadn't actually thought of turning it into a card when its primary purpose was over. But, why not? The Big Shot has no trouble cutting paperboard, so I ran it through with the Top Note Die twice to make this fun little shape. Then, I ran the background through with the Elegant Lines folder for an extra little touch. I was super pleased to find the Birthday Greetings stamp from Occasional Quotes fit in my Word Window Punch perfectly. That let me use the Modern Label Punch to add just an accent of Early Espresso. On came a few of my Basic Pearls & I had a great little card that wasn't just inspired by a tissue box...it was the tissue box!
Oh my! I just saw the post for Color Throwdown #133 and I'm pretty sure the tissue box Kristin used for the colors is the same as mine! I've never used an "old" card for a challenge before, but I just couldn't resist submitting this one. Too funny.
