This past Saturday was World Card Making Day. I didn’t get a chance to stamp on the weekend, but I was a card makin’ fool on Monday!
Papertrey Ink posted 4 world-travelin’ challenges. They were hard, but I had fun. I am squeakin’ in by the deadline getting these three posted. I actually have a fourth almost done, but it is midnight here and I need sleep, so it will have to wait.
So up first was a challenge to be inspired by Japan. I really wanted to use PTI stamps for these challenges, but nothing really says “Japan” to me (except doing Cherry Blossoms with the “Out on a Limb” set, but I’ve done that already, lol. So I went with the tea theme.
The layout is a sketch challenge from the Clean & Simple blog (FTL62). I don’t own that really cool large scallop punch that many folks are using lately, but I was able to fake it. I used a CM circle cutting template to draw my half-circles, then I hand-cut the border. A bit of bling and ribbon, and the card is done!
