Back to school

Hi everyone. Thanks for stopping by. It’s time for another DT challenge.

On to the DT challenge and the sponsor for trimmies CRAFT challenge #648 is Oddball Art Co. The theme this week is “Back to school/Anything goes”. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I die cut the note paper, added the image onto this. Then tore a strip of the print paper to the edge of the image and overlaid some gold star washi tape. All of this was edged with the gold paste. I also got out the sewing machine and ran around the edge of this topper I had built.

I created a background with distress ink and a stamp and cut this to add onto the base card. I ripped the print paper and went around the background print with some gold and stuck a square of this onto the background. On top of this I stuck 3 sides of the notepaper topper to make a pocket for the topper tag. Onto the topper tag I added a good luck die cut.

The paper clip I cut out of white card 4 times. Layered the 4 die cuts up to make it more sturdy and covered it with the gold elsewhere on the card.

So here’s a summary of the materials used to make the card:

  • Digital image from Oddball Art Co
  • Chameleon pens
  • High tack glue
  • Card base – 300gsm
  • Distress oxide inks
  • Edged tag die
  • Gold metallic paste
  • Die cut paper clip
  • Die cut note paper
  • Gold star washi tape
  • Black and white print paper
  • Circle dots stamp (indigo blu)

I hope that you feel inspired and it would be lovely to read you comments.
