I have really enjoyed playing the Create with Connie and Mary Challenges the last few weeks. It really helps me to think outside the box and try things I have never thought of trying before. The are celebrating their 100th Challenge this week! Congrats to them! Click Here to see the Challenge
Since this is a special challenge, we are doing a special theme...
- Make a celebration card
- Use your favorite designer series paper from the MAIN catalog (before it retires)
- OPTIONAL: Use a banner or pennant on your card
Here is my card...
When I designed this card, I was thinking of my mom. this will be her card for "Mother's Day." She has began to gain an interest in card making and it is something we enjoy doing together. She prefers for me to come up with the ideas, but she loves learning all the different techniques. We all know how much fun it is to teach somebody something new and watch the excitement in their eyes when they "get it!"
OK...back to the card! :) I tried a new technique using the Labelits die to create an embossed image. I used the silicone rubber mat and impressions pad with the Big Shot on Tab 1. I was very happy with how this turned out and how easy it was to do. I used a Post It Note to keep the framelit from moving. The Bordering on Romance flowers on the label were stamped off twice.
Thanks for stopping by!
