Still the good thing about Friday is that it is Dare Launch day and I can waste/spend time seeing what everyone comes up with!
So this week it is all about Checks
All Checked Out. you can choose any theme for the card BUT it must incorporate 'Checks', whether it be gingham paper or ribbon or squares, any thing really as long as it incorporates some kind of shape with 4 equal sides.......And this is my offering. It was so hard this week because all of the cards were so fantastically brilliant that I felt a bit awed. So I decided to stick to what I do best - simple!
Its all from that new Self Addressed Kit I had - including the card stock. Just punched witht he green Woodware square and inked with Blue Jeans distress ink.
I made a couple of cards last night too...
This one had "on your dedication" printed on it. I tried to scallop the bottom. But the card stock isn't as good as Card Creations and wouldn't cut properly. So I had to cut it off. I then scalloped the side. That didn't go too well and then the "on your dedication" was not in the centre so I had to cover it up. So I wrote out some of Aaronic blessing and had a strop for a while. I hated it last night but it is not so bad now. It is a commission so I hope they like it. (I think the baby was a girl)
To help with the recovery of temper I made this one in about 15 minutes and I love it!
Both cards were made with the May SA kit. I bought the Bazzill card stock stickers ages ago but one of the SA kits had chipboard that they fit on. The little flowers were in a prize package and the bling is - yup that same packet of gems from Poundland!
