Make it Monday
Good morning. Today I made a card for the Make it Monday challenge from PTI. I used the Cardpatterns sketch 142 . Im too late to enter it in the cardpatterns challenge but I loved the sketch.
I started off with a Pure Poppy cardstock A2 base. I used all PTI stamps. The merry christmas is from the tremendous treats set. I stamped off first and them stamped it many times onto a piece of kraft cardstock. I added some snowflakes from the winter penguin set . I stamped them all over in pure poppy ink ( I didn't stamp off first.) I cut the whole piece into thirds and inked the edges with chai ink. I cut a solid bracket border (mft) from red CS and adhered it to my largest piece of kraft. I layered black offray ribbon and layered some red fuzzy ribbon ( hobby lobby) on top of the black piece. I glued all three pieces of kraft to my card base.
I cut a classic circle and a scalloped circle from CS. I diecut the penguin and his hat on white CS and stamped the images from the winter penguin set. The seasons greetings is from Tag-its #9. I popped the circle up with foam tape.
I'm not one to make my own BG paper. I usually buy lots and lots of patterned paper,( what an addiction:o) but this was a fun technique and I will be doing in more in the future. Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting!
