Welcome to a new challenge at
Please note that we now have a new address for the challenge blog due to some technical difficulties with our previous one. You can find us at: cagichallenge.blogspot.ca.
This week we have a really fun theme:
Let's Go Shopping.
Our fantastic sponsor is
A Day for Daisies
I selected "Fashion Shopping" for my card this week.
Since this image has such a mod feel to it, I really wanted to accentuate that. I did that by only coloring her clothing and accessories. A little bouquet was added to one of her shopping bags with a bit of paper piecing and some dimensional tape. The white flowers and green tissue paper were both from my stash.
My color scheme was inspired by the rosette. It was made with paper from the Fancy Pants Merry Little Christmas stack. The circles were cut using Spellbinders Lacey Circles dies. I hot glued the rosette onto the card base. A double layer of dimensional tape was added around the perimeter of the card to hold the gray and olive green mats up over the level of the rosette. I wish I could remember where I had seen this idea so I could give the proper credit. To whomever shared this technique: Thank you...I love it!!
The rhinestone sticker in the middle of the rosette is from Freckled Fawn. The awesome beaded trim is from Joann. I've
been hoarding had that trim for quite some time just waiting for the right project. This was definitely the one I'd been waiting for!
I wrapped a narrow satin ribbon around the dimensional tape
to hide it.
I absolutely adore the way this card looks!
I'll most definitely be using this technique on more cards.
Wouldn't it look great on Christmas cards?
