World Card Making Card Contest

Have been so busy the past weeks. First me got sick... then busy thinking/planning and making cards for "World Card Making Card Contest" by Paper Crafts Magazine. Put on my thinking cap but only end up with 4 cards.

For this contest,  I have to create as many cards as I like in any of the following categories:

  • Birthday
  • Christmas/Season’s Greetings
  • Hello/Thinking of You
  • Love
  • Thank You
But me only stop at 4. Too confident?? No ideas?? ha ha... I had no idea....
Anyway, here are the 4 cards:

- Christmas card: Made this with acrylic sheet. Paint one corner with gesso and fine glitter. then pasted patterned paper behind the card and punched leaves and printed dress form in front. Pasted the snowflakes paper and a ledger paper inside the card to serve as background and writing space(forgot to take a pic of this).

-Thinking of you: Stamped different small silhouette images and die cut and mat on black cardstock. Stamped the chair on Hambly paper. Love how it all turns out. 

- Love: Got this idea from the pic below. Wanted to re-create a cabinet door, symbolising "Filled With Love". Not sure the embossed part of the "cabinet"(2nd layer of blue cardstock) can be seen clearly here.

- Thank You: This is a simple card, made simply to highlight the meaning "thanks for making my life sparkle".
Punched the butterflies(different sizes), distressed edges with tattered rose distress ink and stickles to make it shine. Put in more effort for the butterflies especially for the smallest ones.
