Papercraft Star 39

Our challenge this week at Papercraft Star is:

Simon Says Create A Card

Create a Card Using the Following Recipe:
Base 5 x 7
Mat: 3 x 4.5
Add Rhinestones
Add Flourish
Add Whatever Else You Desire

Lots of people don't like recipe cards but ME, well I just love 'em !! I think the card makes itself, kind of a relief for me who sweats over each card like I was in front of the firing squad.

Now I know it looks as if I didn't follow this very well, but the truth is I just wrapped it around. Honest.

This is one card I finished and was completely delighted with. It is a manly man card in one way, but then again I thought the black with the red bling looked like a pretty slip, peeking out of a business suit. Oh, worn by a woman of course.

Tracy did a tutorial on another web site about using flourishes to make journaling cards - I thought it would fit for just a tag too. This whole card just made me happy !!

So, be sure you link up at Papercraft Star for this really fun challenge. I saw my teammates' projects before we published, and they are extra special this week. Submissions close this Sunday at 9 PM (Eastern, US).

  4. Love this idea Jan. Soooo creative. I especially like the tag with the flourish. Fab job! :)

  5. I love this card, Jan! Love the ticket and the envelope for the tag! Great job!

  6. Tracy, is right! The card reminds me of garters and stockings too. Like it belongs in an old saloon from the west! I love it! The tag is a fun surprise too!
