Hello Ai fans!
We've just ended our It's Fall Y'all challenge and are ready for a new one!
Who better to kick off this challenge than our own resident queen of bows...Sharon!
Before we share her AMAZING card, let's see who won our last challenge.
We always have two winners, a Top Spot and a Lucky Random Winner.
This time, for our Top Spot we selected
Diana S. for her beautiful 5492 – Front Porch Harvest Set.
We loved her wood background and her beautiful colors.
This is a really easy shadow box card and I learned how to make them from Jennifer McGuire. Just do a search for her instructional videos. First thing I did was cut several pieces of paper at 5 1/2" square and decided what die I wanted to use for the cutout on the front. I cut both a white layer and the patterned paper I wanted to use on top. The white layer adds some stability since I cut such a large piece out of the center of it.
I then cut several pieces for the snowy hills and glued them into place on my card after stamping and coloring a variety of the images from the two stamp sets. I love that the dies come with the Art Impressions Stamp Sets! It makes it so easy! I can't even imagine trying to fussy cut all of these!
To make the spring between the top layer and the bottom layer of the card, I cut two strips of white cardstock 2" wide by 5 1/2" (the size of the card. Score the two pieces at 1/2", 1", and 1 1/2" and fan fold them. Then just glue them to both the front and back. You can flatten your card to send it through the mail. But when you remove it from the envelope, it pops right up again!
What will you all create with buttons and bows?
