We're moved! We still haven't found a house so are staying with my mum temporarily. Last week was INSANE with all the final tasks involved with selling a home and moving. I don't think I've ever been so tired in my life!! Somehow, we managed to get everything done AND I was able to get caught up on grading papers for my students. I hope to visit some blogs by the end of the week. I'm in desperate need of some creative inspiration!!
We're having a sketch challenge at My Craft Spot this week. I was able to make my project a few weeks ago. It's the last thing I put together before packing up my craft room. It wasn't very hard to put together and I LOVE the way it turned out - all thanks to Kimberly's products at My Craft Spot!!
Here's the sketch:
I started with a standard card base (the card does open up) and then cut mats for the front - in white and patterned paper. I made a pocket using coordinating paper and used the NEW My Craft Spot Snowflake Border metal die to create the lovely snowflake border. I added some silver glitter dots to the middle of each snowflake.
The banner was cut from silver cardstock using a NEW Ribbon Banners - Arched metal die and stamped with a sentiment from Friends and Neighbors - Inside and Out (one of the original My Craft Spot stamp sets!. The little gift card holder in the pocket was hand cut (with a paper cutter) from turquoise and white cardstock. I used the NEW Ornate Labels - Christmas stamp set to stamp little snowflakes over the white portion. Corners were rounded with a punch. The little tab was created with the NEW Ribbon Banners - Straight metal dies and tucked between the two layers. I then finished everything off with some Caribbean crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot. The gift card is held in place with a little tab at the bottom created with a Stampin' Up half circle punch.
