I can’t believe the challenge is 10 years old. I’ve only been making cards for 4 years now and just recently started doing challenges. This was actually my first design team gig.
For this week’s fun challenge, I decided to shop my stash. I have a bin full of backgrounds and card fronts that I haven’t used or didn’t like but kept “just in case” so that’s where I started. I found a couple alcohol inked panels that weren’t my favorite when I made them, but were perfect for the card I had in mind. I wanted a mostly white card with a pop of color.
Starting out with a 4″ x 5.5″ piece of Neenah Solar White 110 lb. card stock I used the largest of the Stitched Circles die by Simon Says Stamp to cut out the center of my card front. I cut down my alcohol inked piece just large enough to cover the opening.
Then I used a piece of Silver Glitter Card Stock and die cut the Happy Birthday Script die. This is one of my very favorite glitter card stocks. It’s so pretty and sparkly and goes with pretty much anything. It die cuts like a breeze too. I cut the sentiment out 3 more times using more Neenah 110 lb. card stock and glued them all together using Elmer’s Spray Adhesive. You definitely want to use a glue box or go outside when using any spray adhesive. I just use an old SSS card kit box and I have a sheet of copy paper inside that I replace when it gets too sticky. I also have a pair of designated tweezers that stay in my glue box.
I glued my card front to a piece of A2 sized Peacock Teal colored card stock.
I adhered my panel to a top folding card base. To finish off my design, I added a few Shimmering Pool jewels. This card was so quick and easy to make that I decided to make a 2nd similar card.
For my second card, I used the Hero Arts Rounded Rectangles Infinity die which I’m totally in love in. I love how many different sizes are included in this die. I thought it would fun to do a different shape for this one.
A big, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Simon Says Stamp‘s Wednesday Challenge. I love Simon Says Stamp and the people behind it. I personally don’t know where my crafty supply would be without them. SSS was one of the first companies I ever bought crafty supplies from and they quickly became my One Stop Shop. And my first DT!!
So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
