Yet again, before I tell you about this week's challenge over at Papertake Weekly, I would like to remind you of my plea !!!
I am still begging for votes for my card over at La-La Land Crafts Challenge !
You can see my card HERE and there is a link so you can leave a comment to vote for me - pretty please !! There are also details at the top of my sidebar - I am desperate as you can tell !!! My card is number 17 so I would love it if you could comment/vote for ~17 !!
Back to this week's challenge over at Papertake Weekly. Our challenge is "TO DIE FOR" so we would like you to use die cuts on your creations this week.
We are being sponsored by Dies to Die for and have a fabby £10 gift voucher to win !
The card I made was for a commission a couple of weeks back for a teacher leaving the girls' school. I also made a matching gift box to go with it. I misread the brief for this challenge and though "to die for" was something "to die for" not to use die cuts !!!! Luckily I did use a die cut on my card and box !!!
The DP's are Websters Pages (to die for !) and these have all be machine stitched and I used a gold leaf pen around the distressed edges to give a more distressed look. The pen is again, to die for !
The gathered up proper vintage seam binding in the most gorgeous green colour (to die for !)
Butterflies from a Martha Stewart punch (to die for !) and pearls from my stash.
Gorgeous flowers too (to die for !) and a Magnolia Doohickey die (you do die when you see the prices of these things !) to finish things off !
This is the top of the gift box I made. I also used some K and Company paper on the top too and also another Magnolia Doohickey die, the tag die. All again "to die for".
I am sure you can see where I was coming from now !!
The rest of the DT have some amazing cards to show you this week and using die cuts too ! We hope you can join us in our challenge.
