Remarkable You

Hi Fellow Crafters!

This is my Crazy Crafters Project Highlights Entry for this week. Please vote for my card here! Please note that the link & the voting will be available from 6.30pm Friday 18 March 2016.

I've had this card in my head for a couple of weeks but I keep procrastinating when I'm at my craft desk lately! So naughty lol do you guys ever get like that? I've got too many good ideas in my head & so I don't know where to start! Argh!!

So it was good to finally get this card made & bonus! It turned out even better than I imagined! I hope you guys like it too!

I have started with a Whisper White cardstock base, stamped with the large splotches from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Mint Macaron. Then I've stuck the Watermelon Wonder polka dot acetate sheet from the Memories in the Making Project Life Specialty Card Kit from the Sale-A-Bration catalog, trimmed slightly to fit.

Next I have stamped the leaf & flower from the Remarkable You stamp set in Mint Macaron & Watermelon Wonder & fussy cut them out. I have layered these with the large butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set in So Saffron & cut it out with the matching Elegant Butterfly Punch & some Silver Metallic Thread. I have stapled all of these together & then stuck the whole lot onto the card with Dimensionals.

Lastly, I have put a strip of the Silver Metallic Tape from the Sale-A-Bration catalog, overlapped with the banner. I have stamped the banner with the stripes from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in So Saffron & the sentiment from the Remarkable You stamp set in Watermelon Wonder. I have cut this out using the Banner Triple Punch on the narrowest width & stuck it on with Dimensionals.

I have left the inside fairly simple, without any layering. I have stamped the small splotches in Mint Macaron & the stripes in So Saffron, from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. And this is the other sentiment from the Remarkable You stamp set, stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink.

I have entered this card in the Global Design Project #27 Thank You Challenge. I have made this card for a special customer from my card making class, who put through an online order yesterday! Very exciting! She will also get a special little gift for using my Hostess Code.

I have also entered this card in the CASology #189 Doodle Challenge, as I think the leaves & flowers on this card lend themselves to hand drawn images :)
