At Inspiration Journal there are still a few days to get an entry in to our 'Fresh Start' challenge. As always there is a fabulous prize of $50 to spend at Inspiration Emporium for one lucky randomly selected individual! There are no restrictions! The challenge is open until 31 January 2015.
I sometimes forget how quick and easy it is to make a card by simply using fabulous papers and I have enjoyed using these Graphic 45 papers for all my Inspiration Journal projects this month. I really love all the beautiful sunflower images in the pack and they are appropriate for any time of the year.
I simply cut three pieces of the G45 French Country papers and layered them up after distressing the edges slightly to give a shabby feel. Because the papers are double sided, there is plenty of choice. They were layered onto some fine corrugated card from my stash.
I used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Crinkle Ribbon to make make the belly band and bow. This was coloured with Rusty Hinge Distress Stain and instead of scrunching it up I pulled it straight whilst drying it with my heat tool. The sentiment is from the same paper pad, I cut it and layered it up on some waste card. The finished card is 7" x 7.3/4", so quite large but it really makes a statement!
Don't forget, the challenge is open until 31 January 2015, so there is still time to create!
