Terrific challenge Julia - my first Ways to Use It Challenge actually. In fact, I liked it so much it inspired me to make five cards.
I have seen dozens of samples of really cute punch wreath cards in the galleries, so I tried two different styles, one using a scalloped circle punch and a smaller smooth circle punch and another assembling tiny punched slowers HERE. I can allocate these toward my June cards for the CCC09 challenge as well. I couldn't decide on a favorite, do you have one?
I have seen a lot of really cute shirt cards in the galleries too, so I made THESE TWO for Father's Day, one for my FIL, one for our new puppy to give his Daddy (LOL, yes, I do this and realize many of you think it is ridiculous). I got the idea of using the grosgrain ribbon for a tie from Jennifer Buck.
Thanks for such a great challenge Julia! And thank you to all who look at my cards and leave comments on them.
It's 9 hours later, but I'm back with a card that I can now post!! This was a great challenge--lots of fun ! My card may not be the greatest, but I feel incredibly good knowing that I, myself, made exactly what I needed to design and finish this card.
I've seen several flowers made using the small oval punch, and I wanted to give it a try.. I had the perfect stamp to use it with. I then combined it with another challenge TLC224, to use acetate for my image. Here is my card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=225161
I actually made THIS CARD last week but did not want to risk my hubby seeing it prematurely so I could not post until today. I had been stressing over the perfect anniversary card for my husband - you know how cards for those special someones never seem to be quite special enough? I've seen a lot of different punch bunnies in the SCS galleries and it gave me the idea for the card.
Thank you so much Julia for suggesting this challenge and helping me break through my 'crafter's block' and create this card for my hubby for our anniversary. And thank you to everyone who takes the time to look at and comment on my card.
