The second challenge was to make a shaker card. I must admit I had never made one before and I obviously still need some practice, but here it is:
The 3rd challenge I did was to make a card using different sizes of the same shape. I chose scalloped circles and used them to make a border. I used the same papers as for the shaker card - Winter Delights.
I hosted the rest of the day so did not participate in the challenges, but did find the time to make the next 3 cards for the bingo contest on the message board. The first card I needed to us blue papers, Dazzles, 3 brads and paper tearing. I'm not a big fan of tearing, but this came out alright. I inked the edges of the torn papers.
This last card needed to have yellow, vellum, a punch and paper piercing. I used the Tonic dotty border punch and the flower is also made from a punch. The yellow is vellum as is the inner matting for the flower. I paper pierced each scallop on the patterned paper and the vellum backing the sentiment. It is hard to see, but I also pierced the purple vellum using the HOTP paper piercing template.
I'll be back with the rest of my projects from World Cardmaking Day. I also want to shout out a huge thank you to Hot Off the Press for sponsoring the festivities with prizes totaling $500.00. If you love using their products, join us on the message board - we have a lot of fun and learn new techniques all the time.
Thanks for stopping by and please leave me some comments, I love to read them.
