The weather so far this Bank Holiday weekend has been awful and checking out the forecast it looks like it is not going to improve any time soon!
Anyhow, it means that lawn mowing is on the back burner and I can spend more time in my craft room, YEAH.
I was inspred by a few of the challenges out there to make this card.
Over at Less is More they want you tto use DP in a CAS way, ATCAS's cue word is Plaid and the sketch over at CASe the sketch is intriguing,
I had a sort through my scrap box and came up with a couple of pieces that I wanted to use for my project. As they were scraps I planned the card using some plain copy paper first.
The plaid paper I had reminded me of a shirt so I made a bow tie from some matching green paper and added a few buttons. I used parts of a MFT blueprints die set to emboss the diagonal line as well as cut the white panel. Voila.
A very quick card once I had planned what to do.
I'd like to join in over at -

So brilliant Julie, really clever. We've had a glorious day here...chilly though xxReplyDelete
Clever card Julie ! Love the plaid paperReplyDelete
Super fun card!!!!ReplyDelete
Such a clever and fantastic masculine card. The plaid paper works perfectly for this theme and so fab with the little bow! The UK weather is all over the place this month, I've just got back from a BBQ at my friends' in Exeter. Was lovely in their sunny back garden but was freezing once the sun moved off. I hope the nicer weather makes it to where you are soon.ReplyDelete
