I made a card for the CASE Study challenge #194 using the awesome card from Pamela Ho as the subject and
Darnell's NBUS (never-before-used schtuff) #1 Virgin Challenge!
I couldn't be happier for her! She is an awesome crafter and comment giver and the funniest storyteller!
So...for the card, I didn't change much for the CASE Study card, using the same colours and .
This was easier to do than I had anticipated! That never happens! Not to me.
I have these new "alpha betty" (a la Darnell speak) dies from PTI and I individualized them. Yes, I chopped them apart from each other. That's another shocking element to this post title. These are brand new for me and it is my NBUS item :))
I placed each individual word over the black panel, holding in place with some washi tape and die cut, one word at a time. The black panel is popped up on the pink panel and then adhered to another full sized black panel, all on a white card base. I stamped the happy birthday in white craft ink and a flower was die cut in the same pink and stamped with black polka dots. A few scattered pearls finish it off, along with an apostrophe that I made with a white gel pen.
Darnell's theme for this first challenge is friends...and I wouldn't give this birthday card to anyone but a friend! I sure do hope that Darnell will be having more challenges because I have lots of NBUS.
Thanks for taking a peek!
