For the month of December I am guest DTing over at the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog. Big Thanks to Leslie for inviting me to spend some time with them over the next few weeks.
Love to Scrap! is a bi-weekly challenge and the challenge for December 2nd to 15th is "Let's Get In Shape" - so you must created a shaped card - no squares or rectangles please!
The sponsor for the challenge is Lacy Sunshine Stamps
The winner of the challenge gets to choose three images as their prize! I highly recommend that you get into your crafty space and make a shaped card for this challenge. Heather has lots of absolutely adorable images in the store - and you can get your images in either digi OR clear stamps. How's that for awesome?
I knew right away what I wanted to do for this challenge - I wanted to make a card that looked like a Christmas ornament! Unfortunately, my laser printer has been acting up and I wasn't able to print an image in time for the challenge but I am hoping to remedy that in the next couple of days! I did, however, wind up creating these two cards.
Making them just involved some careful placement of my Scalloped Circles Spellbinders so that I had an edge on the top. Then I used my Stampin' Up tab punch to make a hanger to cover the fold at the top of the card. I even got out my Crop-A-Dile to add an eyelet through which I tied a bit of ric-rac in case the recipient wants to hang the card on their Christmas tree!
Here's a couple of individual shots of each of the cards:
- finished size: approximately 4.25 inch circle, kraft card stock
- patterned paper: Fancy Pants "Saint Nick"
- sentiment: Verve "Holiday Greetings"
- white eyelets and ric-rac ribbon from my stash
- Spellbinders Petite Circles, Scalloped Circles
- Stampin' Up Tab Punch
- layout: Mojo Monday 317
