Day 137 - I'm in a Bind!

We have over 365 followers at 365 Cards - woo-hoo!!! As it happens, the DT and I have been planning a fabulous Reader Appreciation Week beginning July 26th and I have decided to celebrate this momentous occasion in conjunction with RAW. You can expect more details next week.

Today, the challenge is to bind two pieces of something (card stock, plastic, etc.) to create a card. For example, use a hole punch and then attach using metal rings or yarn.

Paper clips, binder clips, staples, brads, etc. are all possibilities so don't be afraid to try something new!

Here is what Kristie came up with:


Excellent example, Kristie, and so pretty, too!

I think Mr. Linky went on vacation and forgot to tell us. Let's hope he returns soon, but for now, just share your link with us in the comments of this post and I'll add your link when Mr. Linky is back up and running.

Great card, Kristie - I love the green/pink combo! Awesome challenge, but it prevented me from sleeping until I got it done! (Yes, I'm obsessive) Here's the link: http://cardsandothermadness.blogspot.com/2009/07/365-cards-challenge-137.html
Cheers! C

You challenged me to play with a tool I BOUGHT for cardmaking but then never used! Come visit my blog for a picture of my staple-less stapler and the card I made with it.

I added a new card to share as I had this challange in mind when I created the card for the Okie Challange. I love how designers layer textures and embelishments and I gave it a shot. I hope you don't mind that I posted it, I draw a lot of inspiration from the designers on 365 cards.

Cute card! This was a tough challenge IMO. (but that would be why it's called a challenge!) :-)
