Ready for another Festive Friday challenge? What is the Festive Friday challenge? The Festive Friday challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that is inspired by a holiday/festivity. An Inspo list of 10 items is created using the festivity as its inspiration. To play in the challenge you need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project and enter it in the Festive Friday gallery. We love seeing what you choose from the Inspo list and look forward to seeing what you create.
I used from the Inspo List blue, masculine, and plaid/checks. Something else exciting is that the Festive Friday Challenge is teaming up with Double Trouble Challenge, entering both challenges gives you double the chance of winning.
I used the returning color Blueberry Bushel for the blue. Love this color! The plaid/check is from the Glorious Gingham 6" x 6" DSP. In this pack of paper there are the 2 designs shown above in Blueberry Bushel, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Pecan Pie, and Pretty Peacock.
The image is from the Circle Sayings stamp set. The image was stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink. I used a Blender pen to pull some color from the image to color the waves. I used a Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencil from Assortment 1 to color in the sun. Very easy coloring. The image was cut out using a circle die from the Stylish Shapes die set and layered using the 2-3/8" circle punch. The punch can be purchased by itself or bundled with the Circle Sayings set. When you purchase it as a bundle you save 10%.
The Blueberry Bushel dots are from the Tinsel Gems Four-Pack. In addition to Blueberry Bushel there are dots in Berry Burst, Pretty Peacock and Lemon Lime Twist. The coordinate beautifully with the Glorious Gingham DSP.
This is an easel card. The stopper for the easel is a banner die cut from the Stylish Shapes dies. The sentiment is from the Circle Saying set. I like doing fun folds for masculine cards. It creates a cleaner, simpler looking card.
**EDITED- The easel mechanism measures 2-7/8" x 3-3/4" scored at 1-3/4" and 3-1/2".
I will be entering this card in the Double Trouble challenge. I hope you will join in the fun and play in both challenges too!
