Remember awhile back when I made I think it was 4 of these base cards, well I finally used the last one. To recap I took 4 papers layered them on top of one another and then took my Rotary cutter, like this one , and I cut the different rays with all the layers together using a metal ruler to keep the cuts straight. I had already cut cardstock the size of my card base, after inking the pieces I added them in the order I liked with glue stick onto the cardstock base, this gives you a little time before it sticks to make sure they are lined up. Hope that all makes sense.
Kaisercraft -- cardboard die cuts (flower and big tag)
Martha Stewart -- Tag punch
Our Daily Bread -- mini tags sentiment stamp
American Crafts -- twine
Queen & co. --Yellow sunshine pearls
I took many pictures at Mount Rushmore and it was hard trying to figure out which ones to share so there is a lot here.
Getting a close up of them
Now we didn't know before coming that you can take a walk around to the base of the statues and the following pictures are from right under them.
This next one is showing the trail that they had for you to follow around.
Can you imagine carving on this steep mountain
I think I have pictures of every angle of these guys through trees around every bend, LOL!
Coming back there were quite a few stairs to climb and thankfully every so often there was a part where I could rest up before tackling the next set of stairs, if you ever get a chance it is a pretty walk around and very interesting reading on how this all came together. I believe it took us a little over 3 hours in this park and it could have been longer but like I said we were cramming a lot into this vacation and we were off to our next thing we wanted to see, which I will share next time.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend,
