Do I have an awesome post for you today!!??!!
When I opted-in for the Crafty Card Gallery's February challenge I didn't know WHAT I was in for!! I've been on several design teams and figured whatever I was asked, I could handle. Well, little did I know that I would receive an envelope of mystery materials to make a card with. When the envelope arrived I was truly confused and felt like a crafty MacGyver or something. The items were truly random. Aren't you curious???
This month's envelope included temporary (paper) window blinds and some decorative Scotch brand tapes.
The rules of the challenge are simple: you must use everything in the envelope and the materials must be clearly visible on the card.
I created a motivational birthday card for a close friend with the materials. I used the paper blinds by cutting it down to just under 2" wide, punched it with a Martha Stewart punch, sprayed with fireworks and created a rosette. The center of the rosette is covered with one of the scotch tapes and the other was cut with decorative scissors and used like Washi tape along the bottom of the card.
I love the sentiment from Stampin' Up! - Feels Good set. To complete the look I cut a Recollections bling flourish and strategically placed it around the sentiment.
