Every Thursday on the Create: Blog I issue a CARDS challenge and showcase about 25 cards from the previous week's challenge. Sometimes I play along, like today! The challenge was to create a card using 100% pink materials. I have a little bit of white on my card, my bad...
Notes: The original Karate Kid movie was playing in the background while I made this card. I only watched this movie for the first time a few months ago via Netflix instant play and now I'm hooked. "Wax on. Wax off. Wax on. Wax off." It was filmed several locations not too far from our apartment so maybe one day we'll go on a "Karate Kid safari."
These CARDS challenges are for anyone living anywhere with all kinds of skill levels - so give it a whirl :)
How to: Create a 4" square card base from light pink cardstock. Die cut concentric flowers from a variety of pink patterned papers, crumple each flower, layer them together smallest to biggest, then attach them to the center of the card with a pink pearl brad set through the middle (I had to poke a hole through all the layers with a paper piercer first). Accent the largest flower with five pink jewels spaced at even intervals. Place an "L" chipboard letter sticker before the pearl brad and "VE" chipboard letter stickers after so the brad becomes the "O" in the sentiment. Tie a small bow from thin satin light pink picot ribbon and adhere it above the pearl brad.
