Fun Fables


Today is my first challenge at Friday Mashup! I’m super excited to be their guest designer for the month of June.

This week the challenge is to make a kid’s themed card using the following colours:

This week for the Mashup Challenge, you are welcome to:
       1. Create a Kid Themed project. 
       2. Create a project using just the Color Combo.
       3. Or “Mash it Up!” and create a Kid project that uses the Color Combo!

For my card, I wanted to use the challenge colours in a really fun way. I have had this idea brewing for a while now and just needed a push to make it.

The card is 5″ x 5″ square and I made the “stage” using Chocolate Chip cardstock and the challenge colours. The top layer is adhered using a double pile of dimensionals. Now, by doing this, it allows the card to be used a fun stage for a child to make believe and make up their very own stories.

I used the stamp set, Fox and Friends to make the little characters and adhered them to popsicle sticks using some Tombow Multi Adhesive.

Wouldn’t this be a great card to give to a child with a big imagination?

I’d love to see what you come up with at Friday Mashup! Head on over and play along!

Cardstock: Pacific Point, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Whisper White.
