Papercraft Star this week. Last time we had one we had almost 200 entries. We'd love to see what you have to share with us this go around.
This sounds totally crazy, but I had the hardest time with this challenge. Anything goes is easy right? Well, I just could NOT get settled on a design for anything. Thankfully my friend Sarah made a beautiful Christmas tag easel card that gave me the inspiration for my project this week.
I used one of the larger Nesties that matches the inside panel I used for including a message to cut the top of the tag for the card front. I used one of the sheets from my Bo Bunny Gabrielle 6 x 6 pad for the front and inside mats. They're both distressed and the card base is edged with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress inks. There's another snippet of the BB paper under the image. Isn't that image beautiful! It's from the Fine Art Bookmarks (158) download from our amazing sponsor, The House Across the Bay.
Considering how hard it was for me to come up with my project, not to mention that I was down to the wire getting it posted for the blog, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
Make sure you check out all the other DT creations. They're quite the smorgasboard! We also have our first Guest Designer with us this week, Becky Garrison.
You know the rules. :-) Just get your project linked up by 6:00 a.m. Monday morning for your chance to win some great digital downloads from THATB.
