LIM No.3!!!!


Oh dear another entry for the LIM challenge which is the third today!! This watch has been sitting around on my desk for a couple of weeks waiting to be made into a card so I have finally completed it to fit today's Sketch challenge.
I have seen a few people make the new SU Soda Pop Tops into watches using the Dapper Dad stamp set for the watch face but, as I don't own this set, I had to improvise. I used the clock stamp from Forever Young stamped in Versamark and silver embossed before punching the clock face with a Circle Punch. This was matted onto a larger punched circle of Brushed Silver cardstock before covering with Crystal Effects. The Soda Pop Top was flattened in the Big Shot and, when the clock face was dry it was adhered to the Pop Top, again using Crystal Effects. The watchstrap was made with Brushed Silver cardstock embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. The watch was positioned onto a panel of Twitterpated DSP matted onto Basic Gray cardstock and then onto a DL card blank and the sentiment is computer generated. A Basic Rhinestone was added to the centre of the watch face and a couple on the sentiment banner to add a bit of bling!
No more entries for this challenge I promise :0)


  1. Lovely card Margaret, love how you've made the watch. It looks amazing. I'm impressed this is your third card for LIM. I love all three but I think the first one is probably my favourite.
