So I was working on a card in my head, with no thought of challenges. I just wanted a Thank You card. And lo, and behold, I found four, count 'em, four challenges that this little card fits into! Who knew?! Things have a way of working out, don't they? This will head into all three SSS challenges; SSS Monday (use a past challenge; I'm using one from May of this year, "thank you"), SSS Wednesday (anything goes), and SSS Work It Wednesday (Thank You). And over at Stempelkuche the challenge is not to use any stamps on our designs.
Here's the card:
Now before I get into the full detail mode, you all have seen the amazing creations that Hannelie makes, haven't you? Well, she uses her Silhouette Cameo in such amazing ways, that I thought I should expand my horizons a bit more. Thanks sweet Hannelie for being such an inspiration! The polka dotted paper, and the tag were created from Print and Cut files! The tag was blank, so I found a font I liked, moved it onto the tag, removed the red outline, and gave it a rich black fill. The polka dotted paper was another tag, and I just made it bigger and then used a ME die to cut it to this size. There's an old vellum leaf die cut on the tag, and some nested gold thread. A bit of Michaels sheer black ribbon and I think that's all. While this took me forever to make (hack, hack, cough, cough, blow, blow), I think it could be done now in a matter of 10-15 minutes. This card feels right. You know what I mean? When you create something that speaks to your whole insides? I wish you could all see this irl... Would it be wrong to say that I love this one? It makes me happy and I hope it makes you happy too. And speaking of happy....Happy Dances everyone!
