All Wrapped Up

 

 

I’m still trying to find a spot in my new house to take my card photos. I like the wicker background from my barstool but I’m not sure I’m “in love” with it. You know? Chime in and let me know your thoughts!

 

This card is inspired by the ¬†Merry Monday sketch challenge. I love sketch challenges! And, I decided to use an old idea, infuse it with something new and I’m quite happy with the result.

 

The base for this card is Poppy Parade and it’s layered with a piece of Chocolate Chip and then some retired holiday designer paper. This is the vertical layer in the sketch. Yes, I took some creative license here with the layering but ultimately the layers are all there!

 

Remember a while back I made that kleenex box card? Well, I used the same idea but changed the size slightly. I stamped the Wild Wasabi card stock with a stamp from Artistic Etchings and sponged it. I then added strips of Poppy Parade to look like ribbons and then I made my paper bow.

 

This super cute bow is made using 3/8″ strips of card stock and my Medium Jewelry tag punch! I will do a wee tutorial to show you how. It is SO easy!

 

I finished it off with some bling and a little tag. Voila! I think this would be super fun as a birthday card using fun bright colours.

 

Oh, on a personal note. THANK YOU so much everyone for your very kind welcome back! I am very touched at every word you’ve sent my way. Really. Thank you.
