I was asked to be a guest designer over at Crafting by Design this week. It was an honor to be asked and fun to play along with their current challenge of three layers or more.
I picked this adorable stamp/die set from Taylored Expressions to use for this birthday card. It's a simple set that made this card come together quick and easy. I used my new Spectrum AquaBlend colored pencils to color the gumball machine and gumballs. Then used the matching die cut to cut it out, plus a window in the center. I created the shaker box by mounting acetate on the front portion, then foam tape between the front and back to hold in a little bit of glitter. I also used a bit of crystal lacquer around the edges to make sure the glitter didn't escape since it was such a skinny edge.
The sentiment stamp and die cut border are also from Taylored Expressions. The scalloped edge die cut is from Spellbinders and the stitched border die cuts are from Lawn Fawn.
Thanks Crafting by Design for this fun chance to play along!
This card deserves to play in some challenges:
Crafty Catz - stitching faux or real
Penny's Paper Crafty challenge - anything goes
Love to Scrap - anything goes
Thanks for stopping by - enjoy your weekend!
