I have had a lovely quiet day on the craft room and I am so pleased with my efforts too
I made something fab to share then looked at a blog challenge I joined once – and got 2nd place – to see what this weeks theme was and that was it – I made another this time to fit the theme!
The site is The Sunday Challenge – a theme is set and you have to design something to fit it – his week its Hello Doily – the only rule – it HAS to have something on it from a CD
So this is what I have made to submit...
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
White A4 card
Pink spotty backing paper from KANBAN SEASONS cd rom
Pink with gold trim wavy line peel offs
Waste peel off bits...hearts and lines
7 tiny dark pink buttons
Scrap white grosgrain ribbon and pink Baby Girl peel off
Tiny pink safety pin
New Baby tag
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card …
The backing paper was printed to 128gsm matt photo paper then the back was sprayed with Crafters Companion Stick & Stay then secured to the A4 white card
I scored the card on the Eazi Score board on t he A4 gatefold lines
I had the template for this in my box of templates so have no idea who designed it or where it came from – so traced the pattern and transferred it to the back of the card with a ball tool
The main cardigan shape was cut out then the sleeves were drawn and cut out – oh and the 2 pockets
I used a ball tool and the cm side of Houghie Board to score lines along the cuffs and fronts of the cardigan to act as welts
I used sticky pads along one side of the sleeve and secured to the card base then did the same with the other sleeve
I next cut 2 pieces of paper covered card measuring 2cm x 17cm and edged these with pink and gold edged peel offs – I used the peel offs on the sleeve ends and bottom of cardigan fronts too.
One the left side panel I added 7 evenly spaced tiny dark pink buttons and the tiny hearts which is left behind when the heart border peel off was used in between.
One the other panel I used small sections of wavy peel off to look like button holes
Just inside the card I added the small piece of grosgrain ribbon with pink Baby Girl on it.
The pockets were popped pattern side down on a foam mat and I used the shaping tool in a circular motion to plump up the pocket – I added a large sticky pad them attached to the card front
Now to the doily – I folded it in half then cut out the solid centre.
The frilly bit was then cut into 4 pieces.
I started with a piece of narrow red double sided tape and gathered the doily then attached to the collar – I repeated this with another piece of doily and added to the other side of the collar.
I had to cut the remaining 2 pieces down even more to use on the pockets but basically I did the same thing – used red tape and gathered the doily as I went along...then added to the top of the pockets
Finally I cut a small piece of white 3mm ribbon, thread it through a New Baby tag and attached to the lace collar with pink safety pin!
And that concluded the card of the day!
I think it looks fab – the 1st one I did was a different colour and was made differently so you will see it another time...
Ok – time for food!!!
Another card for the “to use or sell” box
Right that's all for today – same place tomorrow!
