Sweet Pea Stamps Stamp Off Entry
I'm very excited. I've made it to the second round of the Sweet Pea Stamp Off. The winner is up for a $50 gift certificate and I love their images. DH is complaining that all my cards look very similar recently - lots of fairies and dragons.
This round we were challenged to make a fancy fold card. The phrase, "Make the card the gift" really stuck in my head. My family rarely keep cards so I had to think of something that would appeal - I chose a card with a detachable bookmark. One thing my family does do is read. The perfect mini gift.
Here is the front of the card. The image is Rain Dragon. I just love this image - very fun for little people cards and quite versatile.
This second picture is of the bookmark itself as it is folded into the card. The image is Dragon Luck. The sentiment is actually part of a larger sentiment that said Autumn Wishes that I cut down to use just the part I wanted. I used to be terrified of damaging my stamps but have found I get way more use out of my stamps now. I can always lay them back together on my block if I want to use the bigger sentiment again.
The third picture is of the inside of the card and the back of the bookmark, which was scored with a perforation tool to make it easy for the precipitant to detach later. My brother will be so happy to see me using the Christmas gift he gave me.
If you have made it this far, I would so love it if you please go vote for my card. Follow the link here and click on entry #6. Thanks for your support!
