Blast From the Past - My Craft Spot Challenge


This week's challenge at My Craft Spot is "Blast From the Past". Usually, projects for our weekly My Craft Spot challenges need to be new - but we're breaking the rules this time! Re-post any previously made project that you've created using My Craft Spot products and link up your new post for a chance to win a gift certificate to the My Craft Spot Shop! So fun!

I decided to share a card I made in August 2013 for our Get Well/Sympathy challenge. I created the card based on a sketch that I had found on Pinterest. I always like the way my cards come out when I use a sketch. I really do need to remember to use them more often! 


When creating my card, for the most part, I simply cut papers in various sizes, embossing one of the panels and inking everything.  I used the My Craft Spot 4" Doily metal die to cut a dictionary page and layered it underneath a Wild Orchid Crafts rose, some My Craft Spot Vintage Vanilla crinkle ribbon tied in a double bow and my sentiment panel.  


The beautiful sentiment is from My Craft Spot's With Deepest Sympathy stamp set.  I used a Spellbinders die to cut it out - and it looked as though the die was made for the sentiment!  I was so excited with how they worked together so perfectly!

Thanks so much for visiting! Have a fabulous week!
