365 Cards - Day 55 - Card Recipe
Today's challenge at 365 Cards is a Recipe.
Wouldn't it be nice if you just had a simple recipe to follow that only allowed for variation in colors/patterns?
Here's the recipe for this card:
5x5 card (solid colored card stock - may be smooth or textured)
4x4 patterned paper (you may alter the edges if you'd like)
1 shape (circle, square, star, heart, etc.) - must be solid color
That's it! Nothing more. Can it be done, and done well?
I did struggle with this challenge a bit due to not owning a lot of alpha stickers and trying to find paper to match the few that I did have.
Bazzill cardstock used for the base card
Patterned Paper - I am afraid I do not know the brand as I had cut the strip off when I previously used it. - I inked the edges of the paper.
Bazzill cardstock for the Circle
Kaisercraft jewels placed in the centre of 3 flowers on the patterned paper.
Misc Stickers - I had trouble with this because I don't buy alpha stickers, but I did purchase a cheap mini album which had these alpha stickers in it - saved the day.
Have a nice day and happy crafting.
