Hey, Crafty Makers!
Here is a quick card I made for the Gingham theme over at
Double D Challenges. I am using one of my unbranded dies and I love the way this project turned out. Nothing fancy but I was able to reduce my 6"x6" paper stack by two pieces. I am working on a tag to enter as well. Two projects only two sheets of paper.
I am on a roll! Hopefully, in April, I will create projects that will increase my confidence in layering fancy intricate dies.
I am a great lover of Kraft card. I think it goes so well with almost any color and is particularly effective if you are going for the 'rustic' country look. I usually save my gingham paper for paper piecing. I am glad that I stepped out of that particular little box and tried something different.
My original intention was to leave the white hearts blank but I needed to pull more of the Kraft card into the design so I added the Love sentiment and switched my tag from white to Kraft and added the twine bow. I plan to make a second card using the gingham frame. That should be fun.
Stuff I used:
Papers: Kraft Cardstock
Patterned Papers: American Crafts "Marine"
Stamp: Hampton Arts "Just For You" - Wood mounted
Dies: Strip Alphabet Die - Tim Holtz™ Alterations "Alphabetical"
