New Year : New Challenge


This challenge will be similar to the Card A Day Challenge I participated in 2013. My only goal is to be able to complete 31 papercrafting projects in 31 days!

The project for Day #2 is a card based off the current sketch at Cardabilities.

CTMH: Valentine For Always

Using B&T Duos from the For Always Paper Packet* I created the background of this card. The doily heart is cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut® Cartridge in Ruby Cardstock and is distressed using a sponge dauber and Ruby Exclusive Ink®. The flower is made by folding the For Always Textiles onto an Base & Bling Adhesive Dot. The center gem can be purchased in the Base & Bling Black Jewels assortment and the stick pins are from the For Always Assortment*. To give the card added dimension I also added a couple layers of Black Hemp* behind the fabric flower. The sentiment, stamped in Black Exclusive Ink®, is from the Photogenic Stamp Set that was available during the Holidays From The Heart Campaign {October-December 2013}. I also used a sponge dauber and Black Exclusive Ink® to distress the edges of the White Daisy Cardstock and the white text printed B&T Duo®.

CTMH: For Always #projectaday

Wanna know the best thing about this card?!? ALL of the paper used {minus the White Daisy Cardstock} is from the For Always Paper Packet!!! Close To My Heart not only includes the B&T Duos® in every paper packet, but they also include a variety of cardstock that complement the B&T Duos® beautifully!

I’m starting this Project A Day Challenge off very slowly so stay tuned today for another blog post with Day #3 & Day #4 so I can catch up!!
