Today is World Card Making Day! Today is also my first time to Hostess the challenge and I will be your Hostess all month at the blog for Crazy4Challenges
So this week’s challenge is to make a card! It can be any shape or theme that you would like to make. I’m hoping to see a lot of you this week because you know there’s something coming up in your life that calls for a greeting card.
I took this opportunity to do some coloring. I like to color when I’m experiencing stress! I find coloring to be very calming and takes you out of your “head” for a while.
I used to have a little Yorkie named “Radar”. He was the love of my life! When I saw this adorable digital stamp from The Paper Shelter I just had to have it. The stamp is called “Teacup Yorkie”.
Step 1: Download the image (click the “paper shelter” link above to purchase). Then size and print the stamp on cardstock made for the coloring medium you use. I used Copic Markers, so I printed the stamp on X-Press It Blending Card that is available at Amazon.
Step 2: Using Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1120 – Stitched Rectangles Cut out the colored image:
Step 3: Cut a mat for the die cut image with a coordinating color cardstock using the largest die from this set: 1174 – Dotted Scallop Rectangles Adhere the “colored image” layer to this mat.
Step 4: Using Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1072 – Small Butterfly
Cut the Silhouette pc and overlay pc. from cardstock that matches the way you colored the butterfly in the digital stamp. Assemble the butterfly.
Step 5: From this set I’ve had for yrs. and don’t know who is the manufacture, I cut the sentiment “Hello” 3 times. Once in light peach, one in coral and one in a medium teal. I offset the stack with coral, then teal and last light peach.:
Step 6: Score a pc. of cardstock that is 8.5″ x 11″ or larger at the half way mark on the long side and fold for a side fold. Trim for a base card that measures 5.25″ x 6.5″.
Step 7: Assemble the card as shown:
Thanks so much for dropping by and I can’t wait to see what you make since there are no rules this week!
