This theme is this week's Challenge at CC Challenge blog.. A Challenge which was set by our Jenny and you can use whatever the word HOLE inspires you to.. it could be an aperture card, a shaker card, anything that has a hole in it!!!
I decided to use a border punch for the sides and on the black mat cardstock... this creates holes :) and some eyelets to pass the ribbon into. Quite not my usual type of card! No cute images this time! but flowers ;) But all in all, I love the way this card turned out after all! I wasn't that sure at first, as I decided to use grey scale and pink (and a bit of brown as well).. but it created a lovely effect. Again I used quite a few dots around, as you may have noticed I'm loving this style lately. I also found, from most of the comments I get from you,that it may seem that you love them too!
For this card I used: Pink white and black cardstock For the main picture: DCWV Black & White Mat Stack Fabric pink flower glitter gel pens for dots white organza and checqued pink ribbon Fiskars Border punch (for the bottom border) Create and craft border punch (for the sides) Rayher Heart Brad Gold frame and "gem" on ribbon (from stash) K & Co Brenda Walton Tags and Corners (the upper corners' embellies)
By the way... I added a Heart brad at the bottom left, to hold a samll "Bloom" tag... two more holes in my buck... errr card!!
Anyway I hope you like it, and waiting to see your comments here, and your creations over at Cupcake Craft Challenge Blog, this week as well. Also as from this week, Lauren is putting up a weekly newsletter as well, with our latest news and creations, so why not pop over and sign up (free) for it??
God bless you always dear ones.. and I wish you all a lovely week, full of all the good we can get!
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
