Happy Monday everyone! It's time for another Woodware challenge; this week we are sharing our birthday cards! We'd love to have you join along, so make sure you link up at the end of my post. For my card, I used this week's Card Patterns Sketch:
I haven't played along with CP in a loooong time, but as soon as I saw this sketch I knew it would fit my little buddy Ted perfectly. I grabbed my MME Quite Contrary 6x6 pad (it came free in one of those British mags- LOVE that!) and some white and kraft cardstock and got down to cutting. I know I used that Labels 18 die on my last Woodware card, but when I was playing around with it, I realized it would make for a great background too, not just a focal piece. I stamped Teddy several times on scraps to make his gift extra snazzy. Martha Stewart has nothing on Ted. ;) After coloring Ted with my copics and paper piecing the present, I added a brad to the flower to make a dimensional bud. To finish off the card, I ran a strip of kraft cardstock through my Cuttlebug and added two large Denami Design buttons to complete the sketch. I wanted to add a sentiment but it just didn't look right no matter where I placed it, so I left it blank. I think the pretty patterned papers hold their own without a sentiment. :)
Again, I hope you'll have some birthday cards to share with us. Play along here:
Have a great week, friends!
