I challenge you to USE IT!

Yep, you guessed it, this is a Ways to Use it Challenge. And today I am challenging you to use your crimper! You can use it in so many ways, see what you can come up with! Here is a link to all the cards in my gallery that I've used the crimper on.... and a link to all cards on SCS using the crimper in some way. If you want to think outside the box, make your card before you look at these other ideas! If you don't have a crimper or got rid of it thinking it had seen better days then play along by imitating the crimped look in some way. Have fun with it!

Can't wait to see what you come up with. I'll be playing along as well!

ETA: Sorry, I forgot to mention a few important details. Anyone can play along- you do not have to have a blog or be a member of GSG! Also, please put GSGC08 in the keywords if you post on Splitcoast. Wherever you post your creation please leave a comment here along with a link so we can see what you've done and show you some love! :)

What fun! Sadly, I don't own a crimper but I am anxious to see some crimped out cards! I might have to put one in my cart on my next order!

Great idea to use our crimpers!
It worked perfectly for a quick Father's Day card:
