I am on a roll!!!

As long as I don't roll down a hill I will be okay!! *okie thinks to self...I have a few rolls but I don't think I want to talk about that*. Oh yes.....anyway I got another card made today. Well actually I did the cut file last night but cut the card today.

This one is a BUCKLE CARD, and yeah I cheated again, I got the idea from Splitcoast Stampers *okies begins to wonder if she even has an original idea in her head*. I liked the look of it and when I got to looking I thought "OMG SOMEONE SENT ME A CARD LIKE THIS!" and I even remember who!! It was Renee in Virginia *okie still hopes Renee is wartless....okie cracks up laughin at the old joke that some might even remember*.

Oh yeah bet ya'll want to see it huh!! HA HA HA

Okay these are the cuts.
And this is the band. I stamped on the inner band, but ya can do what ya want of course. I won't be bossy and say ya have to stamp it. Although it does look nice stamped.....

Next you will want to line up the belt to where the end will slide into the hole. I used a little of removable adhesive on the inner part to keep it steady while I lined it up.

Check sure that the belt will fit in there correctly, there should be a little bit of room at the top and bottom.

I ran a line of adhesive on the side of the inside mat opposite of where the belt is attached. I did this because it made it easy for me to keep it in place while I positioned the belt.

Then I just attached the belt in place with some adhesive and then taped the rest of the inside mat and pressed down.

And this is what you end up with!!
