Paper Craft Crew Challenge #253
Today’s party time birthday card color choices were inspired by the Paper Craft Crew Challenge blog. I chose to use the Stampin’ UP versions of these colors: Tempting Turquoise, Island Indigo, and Mint Macaron. To check out other cards on their blog for more inspiration, go to:
Fab Friday Challenge #117
The card sketch that I chose for the card comes from Fab Friday. To see more card sketches and see the cards from this challenge, visit:
It was fun creating a lot of texture with this card. I used the Pinewood Planks embossing folder for the backdrop in whisper white. After cutting my large circle with the Stitched Shapes Framelits, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Oh My Stars embossing folder for even more texture.
Washi Tape is often overlooked in the catalog. It is actually a versatile element in the crafting arsenal. I used the Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape to create the whimsical banner behind the “50” element. I lined up the washi tape on a scrap of paper, trimmed it down and punched the ends in a banner with the Banner Triple punch. I also used it inside the card to add a punch of color. So simple!
What do you think? What is your favorite use for washi tape?
Woohoo! Time to get some more discounts for next month and finish off that wishlist.
