Card Challenge

Tracey organised a card challenge this month on the Paper Paradise forum and sent us all the same items. I was undecided whether to sign up for it because I am rubbish at making cards, however I have recently started to enjoy them as long as I am not under pressure or a deadline!!These are the gorgeous supplies we were all given to work with!!

This is the card that I made with the goodies..........

I placed the acetate picture behind memory glass and added copper tape to the edge, the flower was cut in half and I cut each petal to a point so that the layer would show. This is easily done by folding the petal in half and snipping down to the edges from the top point of the fold. The shape was cut out by hand and the frill added afterwards.

The quote was found on and I used puff paint for the white dots although the heat gun wrinkled the acetate slightly!! Must remember not to try that one again!!Finally I inked the edges and lastly I really enjoyed putting the finished frame onto acetate!

To see all the others go to Traceys Blog or to vote go to the Paperparadise forum. Be warned the standard is very high!! Especially for a bunch of non card makers!!
