It's been a funny old week 'cos I've been really busy but have done nothing, if you know what I mean? Maybe the school's being closed 3 days for in service days and local public holiday had something to do with that but it's really strange when that happens.
One thing I do have to show is this card created for our Bah! Humbug! Challenge which this week is 'Anything Goes' and I'm afraid it's another easy peasy card made from a Kanban kit.
I took an A4 sheet of black card and folded it to make a z-fold card blank. Then it was a simple case of trimming the gorgeous pink embossed card slightly smaller than each panel ... matting onto silver mirri card ... adding strips of message ribbon top and bottom and adhering it all in place.
I stamped and embossed the Papermania ornamental bauble onto black card and then cut it with a Nellie Snellen Rectangle Frame die.
The stamp was too large even for the largest frame but I was able to extend it by following this recent tutorial posted over at Ikkle's Cuttlebug Cupboard. If you own a Cuttlebug but you've never visited this blog then you really should try to as she shares some fantastic ideas and has written some great tutorials.
This was then matted onto a panel of pale pink card ... can you see it through the holes? ... and a pink spotty ribbon bow was added. A few dots of pink glitter were randomly dabbed on the stamped ornament and small circles, left over from silver chain border peel offs, were popped around the decorative edge before mounting it with double-sided tape onto pink embossed card and then matted to black card. This panel was then mounted onto the front of the finished card, overlapping the card edge.
Sorry it wasn't more exciting this week ... but don't worry because my fellow Bah! Humbug! DT members have been much more creative and their shares include a beautiful project from our Special Guest Designer Claire ... so plenty to get your creative juices going. While you're there you can find out who was the lucky winner of our June Prize Draw ... but cover your ears 'cos she screams! ... LOUDLY!
Hope you all enjoy a Fabulous Friday ... wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
