Ruby's Rainbow ABC
Good morning! It's time for a new challenge from the ladies at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight, Valou has chosen our challenge and she would like to see "Anything But a Card". Sounds like a good challenge!
I made a box to present a custom Baptism card that I made for a friend. The box is very simple to make with the help of the Scor-Pal; the bottom is lined with white felt and the top is decorated with an embossed panel and a felt rose to coordinate with the card. For the card, I've used white/cream...embossed CS, textured vellum, die cut onesie with glitter trim, ribbon, a felt flower, pearls and stickpins. (The recipient loved it!) Here's a close-up of the card:
Sentiment: Computer Generated (printed in gray)
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Vellum
Embellies: Spare Parts Pearls, Maya Road Stickpins, Grosgrain Ribbon (my stash), Flower (MFT Royal Rose Die-namics Die/PTI Felt), Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter
Extras: Scor-Pal, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, White Felt (to line bottom of box), Foam Tape
Please check out the rest of the DT's creations here, along with the challenge details. We hope you will play along...I'd love to see your ABC project!
As You Like It: Favorite Anything But a Card
(Why? An ABC challenge is always a bit hard for me; I always think "What should I make?" My standby is gift packaging because it is inexpensive and really elevates the presentation of the card or gift...even something simple can look extra special!)
Card and Scrap: Bling, Glitter, or Pearls (I used glitter and pearls.)
