PAPERTAKE WEEKLY CHALLENGE: BUTTON IT!
Yes, I know, you are all thinking '...but she is really onto these challenges now...'. Well all I can say is that I really enjoy doing one challenge a week.
I stumbled across another challenge blog i.e. 'Papertake Weekly Challenge' which also seems to give one some freedom and is not just limited to stamping on cards. I love buttons and have always found them very versatile in my scrapbooking, as most of my (ex) students know by now. So of course I had to partake in this week's challenge.
Being a very practical soul, I was so excited to see Mandy's (one of the Design Team members) sample for this week's challenge. Her sample was of a card in the format of a matchbox in which one can put some special treats for the recipient. So Mandy, sorry I just had to cardlift your creation. Thanks for inspiring me. This creation has also got me going on my in-laws' approaching 50th wedding anniversary invite. So have a look out for this in due course.
Here's my take then on this week's challenge:
The measurements for this card was:
1 piece of cardstock (preferably a thick double sided pattern cardstock) measuring 12x30cm
Score the 12x30cm piece of cardstock (on the reverse side, which will be the inside of the card) at the following measurements along the 12cm width: 5cm, 17cm and 18cm
Fold the card along the scored lines and you've got your very basic match box card. Decorate it to your own personal taste.
Thanks PTW this was really a fun challenge.
