Blogger Challenge, Week #4


This week we were to create a card using the sketch from p. 97 of the new Idea Book & Catalog. I found this week to really be a challenge as I don't have the key tag punch so I improvised with my 1 1/4" circle punch and some straight line cutting.


The outside says "I just heard" and the inside I stamped "Congrats on your big news". My cousin just found out they are pregnant and they are wanting a girl so I thought this would be cute.


Stamps Used: Absolutely Fabulous, Priceless

Cardstock: Whisper White, Cutie Pie Designer Paper, Not Quite Navy, Bordering Blue, Rose Red

Inks: Craft White, Rose Red, Not Quite Navy, Mellow Moss

Accessories: Rhinestone Brads, Oval punches, circle punches, slot punch, Bashful Blue taffeta ribbon


Make sure to check out the other participants cards, listed on the right under Blogger Challenge.

Next week I will not be participating in the challenge as I will be travelling.


Enjoy!

Super cute Kim! I love all the primary colors you used. They often go neglected in my stamp room. Plus, great improvising on the key tag punch!
