Last month I participated at June Card Chain Challenge over Deborah’s blog. It is a fun card swap challenge. You created a handmade card and send to the person above you on the sign up list and then you will receive a handmade card from the person below you on the list. So, you send out one, you’ll receive one. Beside it is fun and challenging, it is also where you can make new friend and networking between handmade card makers. They are amazing! To know how you can participate in this month challenge, visit Deborah’s blog here.
This time I get to send my card to Greta. She is one sweet, crafty friend. I made this card for her following the options provided by Deborah here: color palate (pure sunshine, indigo blue, and real red) and theme (friendship):
I love this chevron stamp from In The Background (D1540) that can be used to create fun and colorful background. To create this background card, I stamped it using Outdoor Denim (Z2140), Ruby (Z2170) and Honey (Z2162) Exclusive Inks Stamp Pads.
I stamped the flower from Funky Blossoms (B1452) with Cranberry Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (Z2116) and Topiary Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (Z2155). I cut those flowers. The Cranberry one I cut just the flower and glued it on top of the green one so the only the leaves peeking out 🙂 I finished the flower with some Sparkles Clear Assortment (Z1752)
Then I stamped the sentiment from Love This (B1432) with Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (Z2105). The inside phrase is from March 2013 SOTM (S1303) and I stamped it with Ruby Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (Z2170).
And finally, I wrapped yellow and white baker’s twine that I got from Pick Your Plum website.
Did I tell you I have been so much fun creating this card for my friend? Come and join us for this month Card Chain Challenge! I guarantee you’ll like it and having fun 🙂
