Hello! I hope your Monday morning finds you ready for a new week 🙂 Are you ready for a challenge? One of my cards was chosen as the winner for the The Challenge #48 and they have asked me to be their guest designer this week! I’m so thrilled to play along with this very talented design team!
I tried to give my card a warm and cozy feel as well. I looked and looked for a patterned paper that gave me that feel and finally manged to find one in my 12×12 paper stash. I paired it up with stamped leaves from the Vintage Leaves stamp set by Stampin’ Up!. I really love the size and detail of the leaves, this set is a keeper!
The flip side of the dots pattern paper was a very soft blue neutral pattern so I used it to stamp my leaves. I tried to use my ScanNCut to cut the image out, but either my machine doesn’t like this design or my technical skills were lacking today, either way, I couldn’t get the image to register so I broke down and fussy cut the leaves. I’m glad I had to do it because I think that perhaps I have finally gotten the hang of moving the paper and not the scissors…after five years! Ha!
I stamped a greeting and rounded the whole thing off with a few iridescent sequins.
Thank you for stopping by! Please visit The Challenge for more inspiration and I hope to see you in their gallery this week!
