September Diva Dare ~ Day 8

Hi everyone! Jen here with Day of the September Diva Dare!!

So what we're daring you to create this month is a card or project using inspiration from a tic-tac-toe board. For example: x’s and o’s, hugs & kisses, squares, circles, grids, you get the idea.    

Well, I took the tic-tac-toe idea VERY literally, lol and used a bit of washi tape to create a tic-tac-toe board that I filled with stamps. :)



I knew I wanted to make a card that was clean and simple so I started with a kraft card base and then spotted my black polka dot washi tape and the card just sort of fell together. I love black, red and kraft together! I used Love Notes for all the stamping alternating between the hearts and XOXO's to fill in the board. I finished the board by tying twine around the winning row and adding a tag made from one of the Banner Bundle Die Set dies stamped with I <3 You. I then distressed the edges and popped the main layer up on foam tape. It was so quick and easy and I love how it turned out!


Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, September 25th.  Entries must be new (posted 9/6 or later), include at least one Verve product, include inspiration from a tic-tac-toe board, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 9/25/13.
