Challenge 27 - New Year's Resolutions !
Welcome to Papercraft Star's 27th Challenge - and this one is our New Year's Resolution.
For mine I chose the word "Inspire", which is what I would like to do more of in 2011. Maybe I can do it with my work, maybe my words, or maybe both. Either way, I hope to do it at Papercraft Star !!
For this card I chose diamonds (or tilted squares !) as my cohesive element. You can see them on the paper, the lacy looking thing (hey, what is that anyway) and the brad. This is a way to make things look like they coordinate without being completely obvious. It works on paper, and it works if you are decorating a room too !!
I used the Coredinations cardstock as my back drop - this particular piece came already embossed. Too easy ! I distressed it, and tapped a little distress ink over it, and the edges.
The little lacy square is actually some repurposed packaging that I ran through the cuttlebug. Awfully easy too. And although this card will someday end up recycled itself, in the meantime I saved that little bitty bit from the landfill today.
Link up at Papercraft Star for a chance to win our weekly challenge (based on our popular voting) or our monthly random drawing. Link between now and Saturday noon for Challenge 27.
