Oh boy did I struggle with this weeks challenge over at Polkadoodles. I'm a card maker and a very particular one at that! I swear I also suffer a little with OCD. Take me out of my comfort zone and I go into panic mode. The word 'challenge' is there for a reason!
So this weeks challenge is a significant number birthday and we had to make anything BUT a card using Picnix Cd rom or Studio 12 products. My card making usually also starts with me having a subject matter in mind for the recipient. I was at a loss.
I ummed and arred for a few days and then decided on a little keepsake for my brother as he will be 50 later this month. The papers on the Picnix Cd rom are 'to die for' they look like real fabric. So I cut 2 pieces of identical board and cut the middle out of one to make a frame. I then covered both with the blue canvas spotty paper. I used acetate to 'glaze' my frame. In my graphics programme I used more paper to make bunting which I attached with string. I then added a piece of faux leather with the number 50 (also from the cd). Happy 50th Birthday Simon.
My project may seem relatively simple to some of you but I just want those of you who struggle to realise that when you set your mind to it you can do it!
