Hello my crafty friends!
It is time for the third and final Paper Pretties WCMD challenge! This is my challenge to make a card using corrugated cardboard with the top layer peeled back! Woot! You can find all the details on entering the challenge over at the Paper Clip! For more inspiration for this challenge check out Christie's blog!
For my card I cut a piece of cardboard from the top lid of a box (after I removed the fun stamping goodies that were shipped in it!). I then peeled back the top layer of paper revealing the rippled layer. I then ran it through my Big Shot using a Top Note die to cut it into a fun shape perfect for a background layer. I sponged the edges with Whisper White Craft ink and heat set. I then decorated the piece with a length of grosgrain and a couple of Jumbo Eyelets.
Next I die cut this sweet lamb image using a circle die and then colored with Copic markers. I used Copic glitter pens to add touches of shine to different areas of the image. To finish I added paper piercing to the edges and applied a coating of Crystal Effects to the balloons.
For the card base I layered a piece of polka dot designer paper to a piece of Certainly Celery and added stitching with a sewing machine. I then assembled the various layers attaching them to a Kraft card base.
So what do you think? Is the corrugated cardboard fun or what?! I'm hoping you like it and join in the challenge. :)
