I'm playing along with the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge today as one of their guest designers :) If you haven't played along with one of their challenges yet you should check them out! Any project is welcome- as long as you're busting some of that stash lol!
I pulled out some of my old favorites along with a few new pieces for this card. It also features a gift card on the front- I do these every year for the teachers and the gift cards are getting cuter and cuter! I love how they look on the front of cards :)
I started with a white card base and added the striped paper to the left hand side. I added the scallop diecut edge to it next, cutting it the same length as the patterned paper. The Starbucks gift card was next, taking main stage lol! I added the sparkly snowflake next and then got to work on my sentiment layers.
I watercolored a piece of watercolor paper with various greens to mimic the green on the gift card. When it was dry, I diecut it using the Holiday Fill In The Blank die set by Avery Elle. I stamped the rest of the sentiment from the coordinating Holiday Fill In The Blank stamp set with Versamark onto vellum and embossed it with white powder. Then, I diecut it using a long label die.
I layered the sentiments on to my card and added a bit of twine to finish it off. I love the eclectic look I ended up with! I can't wait to give this one to one of the girls' teachers :)
I had so much fun playing along with Craft Hoarders Anonymous this month! Be sure to pop over to their blog to see what the rest of the team created!
