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.
What did I choose from the Inspo List to use on my card? I went with bright colors, twine, and heat embossing.
For the bright colors I turned to the Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper in the new mini catalog. When I saw this paper I gasped! It was all the bright and happy colors and designs I love. I mean stripes, dots and stars, oh my! The string of lights and little trees are cute too and the "fa la la la", come on, so adorable. I chose 3 different patterns for my card and it wasn't easy to do since I like so many of the patterns.
The dancer and singer are both from the Zany Zoo stamp set and cut out using the coordinating dies. I paper pieced her tutu using the DSP and added a Flirty Flamingo flower cut using the Crafting With You dies. The center of the flower is a Melon Mambo Glossy Dot.
This is what the card looks like from the top. I added a piece of tape to secure the twine to the polka dot panel. This way the twine doesn't sag. I love this fold since the card stand up on its own and yet folds flat.
Now it is time to check out what the rest of the Festive Friday design team created for this challenge.
