Paper craft project no. 118: Mail your packages early

2014-01-22 CAS Mail your packages
I’m happy to share that I’ve joined the fun and talented design team over at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog and this is my first post as a DT member. This week, we’d love to see projects that are funny or whimsical. In line with 2 of my goals this year (to stay on top of my Christmas card-making and do more coloring with markers), I decided to create this Christmas card using one of the images of our sponsor, Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  To create this card, I printed out this dotty Christmas digi paper on glossy photo paper, trimmed it down to A2 size, and adhered it to my card base. Next, I printed the Bugaboo digi stamp on white cardstock, trimmed it, colored it with Memento and Distress markers, stuck it to red cardstock, and mounted it on my card base with foam dots. I created a second smaller panel and mounted it as well. I doodled some borders with a black marker and finished the card by affixing paper brads. I hope you’ll stop by at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog, see the other fun and whimsical projects that my teammates created, and then join in!

I based the design of my card on Retrosketches #98. I’m also entering this card to the following fun challenges: Brown Sugar – Anything Goes; Frosted Designs Friday Challenge – Polka Dots; Sister Act Challenge – Anything Goes; Addicted to Stamps and More #79 – Clean and Simple; and Addicted to CAS – New (I made a card using a digi stamp — new to me! — and the glossy photo paper I printed the digi paper on is from a new box).

Thanks for stopping by!
