EBTKS Challenge #12 - String

Hello! It's a beautiful, sunshiney day here in the mountains of Colorado! Today I have two cards to show you. The first is my take on the latest "Everything But The Kitchen Sink (EBTKS) Challenge," which requires the use of string. Click HERE for the challenge details (there's still time to play along)!


This card was really simple to put together. I used a scalloped notecard from the Yours Truly line at Archivers. I chose three bright colors of floss and wrapped them in a pattern around the notecard. The little scalloped notches hold the floss in place. Then, I finished it off with layers of punch-outs from my "Fresh Print Cherry" tablet (Deja Views). Simple. No stamping on this one (first time EVER, I think...wink!)! I left the card blank so that I can use it for any occasion (birthday, thank you, anniversary, etc.).




What do you think?

I also wanted to show you another card that I made for the auction at my friend's school.


This one uses a sentiment and the "Large Chickie" image from DeNami Design. Isn't he so stinkin' cute? I love how you can dress him up for different holidays, celebrations, seasons!! I made the hat from a scrap piece of patterned paper (SEI) and topped it with a little pom-pom that I had leftover from a craft I did with my students. I cut the cupcake from a piece of patterned paper in "The Sweet Matstack" (Die Cuts With A View). I used my Copic markers to add some shading and color to Mr. Chickie! 

 

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think! I'd love to hear from you!!
