The One with the CARDS Challenge Card: Transparencies

Friday, February 19, 2010

It's Friday it's Friday it's Friday it's Friday it's Friday it's Friday! Can I get an amen? "Amen!" Today I did a post on the CARDS blog featuring cards that used transparencies. Here's my take on the challenge:

Card is 4.25" square

I watched the Back to the Future trilogy while making this card and a few other things this morning. Classic series. I love how it's almost the year they travel to the future to in the 2nd movie. We don't have flying cars quite yet :)
Hambly Studios is the ultimate when it comes to patterned transparencies. I die cut several mini scalloped circles from an assortment of patterned transparencies and stitched them to a cardstock circle, surrounded by a foam letter title on a kraft card base.

Supplies: Cardstock: American Crafts, Kraft; Patterned transparencies: Hambly Studios; Foam letter stickers: American Crafts; Needle: Dritz; Floss: DMC; Paper cutter, scissors: Fiskars; Circle cutter: Martha Stewart Crafts; Die cut machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft; Mini scalloped circle die: Nestabilities by Spellbinders; Adhesive: Helmar

So last night at 8:54pm when I was drifting in and out of consciousness (cuz I tend to fall asleep like *that* when it's past 7:30pm and I'm on the couch watching TV) I got an email from my little sister Allie showcasing a card she made:

Soooooooooo cute right!?!? I couldn't be prouder. She's a girl after my own heart :)


  1. Oh!!!! That is SO cute!! I love it! I actually had to call my BIL into the room to look at it too, and even HE thought it was so cute! LOL.
