So tomorrow's the big day, and I'm wondering how many of you still have your cards to make for your loved ones?! I am TERRIBLE when it comes to making family cards, they nearly always get left until the last minute!!! Well, if you're like me, then this week's challenge at THE CRAFTY PAD could be just the one for you.....this week we want to see....
....on your project!
We have a fab sponsor this week too,
The lucky winner will receive some items from the fab TEA HOUSE range.....here's an example of what they look like:
(PLEASE NOTE: These are NOT necessarily the actual items you will receive, just an EXAMPLE of the Tea House range.)
Back to the challenge, and here's what I came up with:
I went for something other than red, lovely as it is, I have seen quite a LOT of red lately!! It's a pop-out stepper card, and I have used the adorable 'TED'S LOVE' image, one of Debbie's very own creations, and you can find him HERE (just scroll down the page.) I Printed the BP directly onto the card, and coloured my teds to match, using Promarkers.
I cut around the image, and popped it onto a heart-embossed mat cut with nesties. I added a blue ribbon, and a die-cut heart ribbon slider in glitter-card. The fab 'lovehearts' alphas are attached with foam pads, and were a freebie download (so sorry I can't remember where I got them :/ ) Finally I inked the edges and added some gems.
As I (for once!) was organised and have already made a card for my DH, my son decided he would like to give this to girlfriend, along with a box of chocs......ahhhhh......although I nearly fell off my perch when he told me, as he's only 10 years old!!!!!!!
Do pop over to The Crafty Pad Challenge blog and play along, and if you joined us last week, you never know, the winner may well be YOU!
