Happy Monday! If you're looking for the Haunted Design House 100th Challenge Celebration, please scroll down. Trust me, the blog candy at HDH is worth checking out!
With school just around the corner for many, our BBTB2 DT sister Lori, has come up with a school themed challenge using any of the school supplies from Locker Talk (or any other appropriate cartridge). I was inspired by a cute project my friend Margie made for the Stampotique challenge HERE (she was a designer's fave, WooHoo!) and borrowed her sentiment for my card. I was going for a primary school feel so I used Micky Font in all caps. I thought the sentiment captured the excitement a child feels when they rush home with something they've made at school. Obviously my "school supply" was scissors and I made a heart chain, welding the hearts from George.
It's a shaped front card, using Design Studio. The colors were chosen from the Cosmo Cricket background paper that I thought was perfect for this challenge.
Yeah, lots of layers and I've creased the heart chain to look like it was actually cut with the scissors by folding accordion style and cutting half the heart. (YKWIM, don't you?) Anyway, it's only popped in the middle of each heart and was embossed with Swiss Dots. I actually had to dismantle some of the card because I'd forgotten the embossing and couldn't stand how plain it looked without. Couldn't get the original chain off so I cut another one and sort of slid it in under the portions that overlapped. Phew! I worked. Then just a little doodling and it was good to go.
To make sure the inside sentiment didn't show through to the front, I cut another heart chain and glued it directly under the one on the front. I think I craft and blog because I never lost the thrill of creating, especially for those I love. My DT sisters have done just fabulous projects for this challenge, so I hope you stop by, and we invite you to share your love of creating with us at BBTB2. Our challenges run for 2 weeks and we only ask that your project be a new one and that you mention and link us in your post so that others can join in the fun. Hope to see you there.
