Well here we are at the first weekend of 2013 with the first challenge of the year for MTTC. which is
All about the New
I have to confess that I didn't do very well with this challenge - totally because I didn't read it properly!- something that all bloggers who enter challenges suffer from from time to time!! For this challenge the new can be New Year, new baby, new house but NOT new stash - and that's where I went wrong - when I read the challenge I though it said and new stash - so off I went and made my card - which is not the one I've posted here!! I made a lovely card with lots of my new goodies that i got from santa - lovely new colours for my copics, new dies and a lovely stamp - but totally wrong for this challenge!!
- so be warned - NOT new stash.
I managed to find a card that I hadn't posted before that fit that challenge perfectly - something I made ages ago, the card was really lovely and sparkly and shiney - the photo is terrible - and for that I must apologise. I've always photographed my cards - long before I started to blog just to serve as a reminder if i want to make something similar again, and this was just a quick snap really!
It was so last minute when I went to post the card - even though I hadn't rushed to make it -that I didn't have time to make another on top of that my mojo isn't doing very well at the moment - I think he's still on holiday, along with my craft stuff which was also put away for the holidays, I just can't seem to get it together all at the minute - hopefully I'll get it right soon!!!
anyway onto my card
This is what I did (from what I remember)....
Card - made from plain blue card, white card and silver miri card - layered together
Lettering - cut on Slice die cutter (which I borrowed to try out a while ago)
Labels and congrats - also die cut on slice
Edges done with a martha stewart edge punch
Baby sticker, ribbon and button - from my stash
It really was a very easy card to make. I decided not to go with the slice and bought a cricut expression instead. Though to be fair the slice is very portable, easy to us, good for layering and I could have found a home for it among my craft tools and I think its a lot cheaper now than it used to be (well if you import it from the US it is!!) - but at the time it seemed a bit expensive for what it was.
