Hello Crafty Friends -
A little while back Chaitali asked me if I would be willing to take part in an Iron Craft challenge – a lot like Iron Chef but with chopping cardstock instead of vegetables. ;) I was more than honored to be asked to participate so of course I said yes.
My favorite honeycomb paper is the rainbow set so I pulled that out and created a big ball for the donkey to balance on. He’s talented, very talented. I cut some clouds from white felt using clouds dies from Taylored Expressions and then I cut a border of grass from green felt. No die for the grass – I just snipped away with some scissors. I balanced out the brightness of the ball with a touch of bright pink ribbon.
I added some tiny rhinestones to the clouds and stamped the sentiment on a tab cut out using a die from My Favorite Things. The finished card measures 3.5” wide by 5.5” tall. So… I probably won’t mail this card since the rainbow ball really sticks out. Instead I will probably just punch a hole in the top and tie the card to a gift like I would a big tag. :)
If you haven’t been over to Chaitali’s blog yet, I recommend you pop over there to see her take on the challenge. :)
Edited to add: I forgot to mention this earlier - there is a prize!!! There She Goes Stamps has very generously sponsored a giveaway of $15 gift certificate for one lucky winner. So you should really head over to Chaitali’s blog. :D
