It is challenge time at Crafty Cardmakers and the challenge this time is to select a previous challenge on another blog, that you previously ran a mile from, complete it and say why you ran the first time.
Here is my card.
I decided to look at two challenges that I had not done for this one.
• Magnolia down under's, Fake or Real stitches challenge
• Just Magnolia - Paper Pleating challenge.
The reason that I did not do these challenges was that I felt that I did not have enough time to give them Justice but also I had no idea what so ever to do for them. I also decided to have a go at a hidden message card, as I had been wanting to do one for a while.
For this card, I used the following stamps:
• Magnolia: Tilda with Spring Bundle
• Stampin up: Thank you
• Papermania – Signature Blueberry Hill – All patterned paper
• The Papermill – Blue Card
Ribbon and Flowers from own collection
For the hidden message topper – I cut three Nestability labels – 2 from blue card and the other from patterned card. I added lace to the edge of one of the blue card labels. I cut a strip of the same blue card and folded this in half to create a hinge. I stuck this to the back of the lace edged label. Then I struck the other side of the hinge to the back of the patterned paper.
For the card base, I cut a strip about 5cm (2in) in width from a sheet of A4 Blue card. This should give you enough card, to create a 16 by 16cm (6in by 6in) card base. This I then folded in half. I round the top corners, with a punch.
I also decided to enter this card in the following challenges:
