This card is for an order, I'm not overly keen on making cards for children, but I quite liked how this one turned out. I visited Mo Manning's store and her images always seem to hit the mark for children's cards. I started with the background which is a technique I spotted in the latest Craft Stamper magazine. I used Post It notes cut into strips as masks and then sponged Stormy Sky DI over them. I've coloured the image with Pro Markers and cut it out using the Rectangle Nestabilities. The letters are all cut using the Tim Holtz Vintage Market Sizzlet die, they've been covered with Stormy Sky DI and then Glossy Accents.
The rosette is made using the Tim Holtz Rosette die and I stamped letters randomly over the card before I cut it out. I've gathered a piece of ribbon and mounted the centre, including the no.1, on the top. The border is made using a Martha Stewart punch and I've blended Stormy Sky and Faded Denim DI over it. A few buttons from my stash and that's it !
I'm entering this card into the following challenge:
- Papertake Challenge - Bingo - (I've used ribbon, buttons and a free space)
