It's another challenge across at FestiveFriday this week - the home of the INSPO challenge. Our challenge is a paper crafting and card making challenge designed around international days of celebration. Our theme for this week's challenge is INTERNATIONAL CARD MAKING DAY. As a card making challenge, we couldn't resist celebrating that :-) For my card I brought out two of my favorite sets - a die set from Stampin' Up! called Paper Florist and a stamp and die set from The Greetery called Pretty Postmarks. Oh... and it's a profusion in pink :-)
Here's a sneak peek:
And here is our INSPO list. All you need to do is choose at least 3 of the words from this list and incorporate them on your card.
The minute I saw envelope and postage stamp on the INSPO list I knew what set I was going to use:-) I began by stamping and die-cutting all the elements from the Pretty Postmarks set and the envelope from Signed and Sealed (also from The Greetery). Once I had those ready, I embossed a piece of white card stock with the Timeworn Type embossing folder from SU. I die-cut the flowers from Paper Florist and all that was left was to build my card.
Here's thre finished product in all its pinkness :-)
Heat embossing, layers, envelope, postage stamp
I hope you will join us and play along with our challenge. As always the design team have some fabulous inspiration for you:
I'll be back tomorrow with another card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a lift tonight.
