Today's post is Day 1 of 4 days of mini winter card camp ~
a spin off of our summer card camp!
Since we couldn't be together last year for real camp,
it became a virtual camp where each of us hostessed a challenge.
Flash forward to 2021,
and it's winter EVERYWHERE but here in Miami,
so I get to dream of snow and pretend I'm wearing Bernie's mittens :)
Barb gave us a card challenge to complete today
and it's one that was fun but detailed and I was squinting through half
of it - so if my lines are crooked, just lean sideways!
Her class assignment and tutorial:
Use strips of paper or cardstock to create your card
and add a large word die for a focal sentiment.
I chose this gorgeous sunflower dsp I had in my stash,
PTI avacado cardstock (old as da hills!)
and a hello die from MFT Stamps.
This paper seemed like a good choice at the time but
- as mama always said when she saw a flashy outfit -
turned out to be a bit too 'loud' :)
Here's what I started with .........
cutting the papers and cardstock to different lengths.
If I had one tip,
as I cut a bunch of strips, I realized I cut WAY too many.
As you are cutting the edges off from the edges,
there's plenty of small-ish strips that will be perfect for the smaller ends!
Overall, this was a FUN technique and I hope I get a passing grade ~
or at least an A for effort and enthusiasm!
Here is the line up for the next 4 days ~
and peep me on Wednesday to see
what crazy idea I have mine!
