They arrived at 7:30am with pumpkins to carve, and they were starving, and they wanted to play ball, and go to the movies, and do crafts, and print coloring pages off the computer to color, and they were starving and dying of thirst, and they wanted to do another craft.......
And believe it or not, I managed to get a card built, a bit here and a bit there, throughout the day - the tag made when we did shrinky dinks, the coloring while they ate, and the final touches just now after they went home.
I wanted to get a card together for the Creative Knockouts: #5 - CASE Study Challenge. I decided to CASE Amy's card because I liked the layout and the way she edged and colored her image. I did change it from a square card into an A2 card so I could fit it in an envelope not requiring additional postage.
So here is Amy's card using a Bugaboo Digi Image:
And here is my card using a Digi Image by Beccy Muir which I fussy cut and then attached to the white distressed CS:
|Wood heart is a CTMH Trinket Wood Shape colored with brown marker.|
|Close up of the shrinky dink tag. CTMH sentiment stamped with StazOn ink.|
