This is my second post for today. I always have 2 posts on the first of the month announcing the 2 challenges that I am involved with. If you are looking for my Sparkle N Sprinkle Challenge post, just click here.
This month the challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ is ANYTHING GOES WITH A HANDMADE BOW. That's my favorite theme, it leaves it wide open for anyone who wants to enter the challenge.
Sunday, was the birthday of a wonderful friend of mine. So I made her birthday card and decided to share it with you and all the visitors over on the Craft-Dee BowZ blog.
I decided to make Linda a step card. I used designer paper on the left panel and then I cut a transparency into an oval shape.
Next I stamped Silhouette Grasses on that transparency with Olive Green Staz-On. I overlayed it onto the DP and then applied a 1/8" tape around the front edge and covered the tape with gold leafing to make a very thin frame.
Next I cut another oval in blue cs for the back step. I cut a Catalina Wreath using white cs. I added a little color and some glitter and kind of pulled it into an oval shape and attached it to the blue oval. Linda loves dragonflies so I cut one from vellum, colored it and attached it in that oval. I attached the blue oval to the back step. The front step holds the sentiment and I stamped it in Faded Jeans Distress Ink and I attached that as well. Next I added a small blue panel on the face of the card in front of that sentiment. I embossed it just to add dimension and added glitter for the added visual effect.
My bow was made using the Craft-Dee BowZ tool, and to finish it off I made a pearl stick pin.
Well I am taking this card and a gift to Linda this evening.
Tomorrow is the 1st Tuesday for the month and that's my regular monthly post date for Craft-Dee BowZ, so please stop back. I have a interesting project to show you. The theme on our posts at CDB this month is a beach theme, so that's a hint of what you will be seeing.
