It's Laura here today, and I have the pleasure of issuing you a new challenge. My challenge is a simple one, and it's to not use patterned paper. Typically I will start a project by picking out patterned papers, so for me this was truly challenging! October Afternoon makes so so many cute products that I knew I could come up with something fun all the same.
Next month is Mother's Day, and I thought I would try and get ahead of the game and start my card making.
I pulled out the 12x12 Public Library sticker sheet and used two large ones to create my card.
For a fun unique detail on this card, I trimmed down the front of the card so the inside would by longer, and then used a border punch to add scallops. It's such a simple yet fun detail to add personality to your cards. I also dressed up the floral sticker with pop drops!
I created the simple sentiment with the soft striped Grey chipboard alphas, and then used a glitter pen to add a slight sparkle. It's hard to photograph, but you can see some of the shine in the photo below, it's so pretty in person.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you feel inspired by this challenge, and get crafting. Please share your projects on our Flickr group, and use the hashtag #octoberafternoon on other social media platforms so we can see all your awesome designs!
Have a great day!
