Paper craft project no. 152: You are special

2014-03-04 You are special

It’s time for a new challenge at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge blog! This week, the challenge is to add fiber or lace with the optional twist of using the faux silk technique. Do check out the awesome projects that my teammates have created!

For my DT project, I opted to incorporate fiber to my card. I colored a Beansie Doodle digi stamp (one of our sponsors this week) with Memento and Distress markers then fussy cut it. I don’t normally use DPs in my cards, but this cute girl was just begging for it so I hunted around my stash and found a paper pad from Basic Grey with papers that go well with the colors of her dress. The burlap (the fiber in my card) and pearls are from The Paper Studio. The sentiment (which I stamped on Basic Grey DP and cut out) is from the It’s All About YOU! rubber stamp set from STAMPlorations. While this isn’t a card in my usual style, I rather like the end result — a card I can give to a little girl (or teenager).

This card also fits the current challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More #85 – International Women’s Day. Every girl/woman needs to know that she’s special!

The card also fits these fun challenges: Bearly Mine March Challenge – One for the Girls; Deep Ocean Challenge #72 – Just for a Girl; and Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #93 – Anything Goes.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
