I managed to get my Challenge card made yesterday, I hoped to sit and make loads
but I am just not a batch card maker, I like every card to be individual, which means it takes about an hour of decision making before any 'trials' begin!
Today's card was made with:
' Whole lot of lovely' designer series papers
' Lots of Labels' dies
Ribbon Border Punch
'Big on Birthdays' stamp set
'May Flower' Framelite (flowers)
Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon
White sheer Ribbon
Tranquil Tide card
I used Tranquil Tide card as my base colour, then added a layer of the 'whole lot of lovely ' paper as my background. I used a narrow piece of Pool Party card stamped with a the border stamp from 'Background Bits stamp set. I then edge that with a border made from two strips of Punched Ribbon Border which I glued with a small gap between, I layered the two ribbons on top of the border punches, I tied a bow with each piece of ribbon and layered them with a tiny flower. I then stamped my sentiment onto 'Pool Party ' card using 'Tranquil Tide ' ink, die cut it with the largest of the 'Lots of Labels ' dies, I also made a larger faux Matt for the large label die cut by cutting a piece of card slightly wider than the last die cut and left it long, I then used the largest of the dies to cut each end so I could make the shape as long as I needed.
I added some dimensional foam pads and mounted this piece onto the centre of my card. The final stage is to stamp and die cut a selection of flowers in colours that match the paper.
I hope you like the card, I can't wait to see yours.
I hope that all made sense, I have just finished crafting for the night so I can write my blog and it is 01:48am!!
