Papercraft Star Challenge #14

Time for another challenge at Papercraft Star and this week's challenge was a Simon Says recipe. This card was really simple to make. We were to score the mat 5 times at 1/4" intervals so I decided to do that in two different directions. Next, I embossed all that white space with an embossing folder. I inked and stacked punched flowers and added button centers along with some leaves made from a Fred, She Said Designs digital image set. Last but not least is some wrapped hemp cording with a little charm and a handwritten sentiment.


Papers: Bazzill, Great White cardstock
Stamp: leaves from Fred, She Said Designs Dahlia's digital stamp set
Inks+: Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold, and Peeled paint Distress Inks
Tools: EK Success daisy punches, Scor-pal, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
Miscellaneous: buttons, twine, charm

 Submissions can be made through 12:00 p.m. EST Saturday at the Papercraft Star blog.
