Everything ABC’s ~ Letter H

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!!!

ABC's Blog BadgeThis week we will be featuring the letter “H”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “H” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from LINDA NORMAN’S Blog then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultants at the bottom of this post.

For my “H” project I decided to make a graduation HAT card (okay it is really a cap but it is still a form of a hat 😉 ).  I saw a tutorial on how to make one on a Stampin Up score board so I decided to design one using our Close to My Heart Scoreboard.  Start with a 4 1/4″ by 9 3/4″ piece of Black Cardstock.

Step 1 ~  Step 1 ~ Graduation Hat Card ~ CatScrapbooking.comBy making this score mark the area to the right is now what I will be referring to as the “short” side.
