The Best Thing Since Grated Cheese

NOTE: This is my second blog post of the day. If you're here to see my Crafters of Faith post, it is the one immediately following this one so you can keep scrolling... or you can go HERE.

Sometimes I have good ideas, but when I try to implement them they do not meet my expectations. I assume I'm not the only one this happens to, especially when it comes to making cards. This card is one of those times.

Immediately the first time I saw The Project Bin's The Gratest stamp set, my eyes were drawn to the grater - we call them cheese graters - and I knew I wanted to make a swiss cheese card using that image and coordinating sentiment. I tried. I really did. I made - and remade this card - THREE times. And this is as good as it gets. 

I even left the unfinished card in progress on my crafting desk two days - thinking maybe "aged cheese" is better than freshly made cheese. Nope. Didn't help.

(I sure hope Denise doesn't kick me off the DT after this card.)

I do think the idea is a good one. I don't know. Maybe I'll make cheese again another day... but for today, this will have to do.

I used a little SU punch 
to make shredded cheese 
and scattered it down 
off of the cheese grater:

I added some more cheese inside the card:

So far, these are the cards I've made with this stamp set:

Pizza - February 7th

Thumbs Up - February 14th

Turner - February 21th

Bee - February 28th

Grater - today

I guess next week I'll be using the fire extinguisher.
