Paper Pretties – Paper Piercing


Time for another Paper Pretties challenge. This week it is Paper Piercing. Not to be confused with paper piecing which is what I thought I read the first time I was given the challenge. lol

So when I started my card.. I still thought it was paper piecing so I paper pieced Scout Cooper’s (by Paper Pretties) entire outfit. Used copics to color his outfit first before cutting it out and piecing it back on. I kept the colors true in using blue/gold. I made the neck tie orange and blue instead of yellow/blue just to throw in a little different color.  I stamped the sentiment in versamark and then in night of navy so that I could emboss it in clear embossing powder.

But the challenge is paper piercing so I pierced around the oval and the corners of the card. Colored pearls blue to match. Did a square knot in the twine which is a knot the Boy Scouts learn and used the Fleur De Lis Borderabilities from Spellbinders as that is also the Boy Scout symbol.


I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot of Scout Cooper as my son is a Scout and hubby is one of the Scout leaders, hence the reason I had to get Scout Cooper! That being said, I made the card as a thank you card as the Scout Troop took a field trip to a college radio station. Here are a few of them checking out the station: (my son is the one turned around in full uniform)
