This week's Make It Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink is A LA CARTE...meaning if you've missed one of the challenges during the past year, this is your opportunity to go back and play along. I managed to play along with every challenge except one last year, and that was Ashley's challenge with using photo's to make Christmas cards...since I never print any of my photo's anymore, I didn't have one to make a card with. Not a current photo anyways! After reviewing all the challenges, I decided to go back and play along with Dawn McVey's Sentiment Windows (#299) so that I could make use of a few things I haven't had a chance to play with yet. And what a great way to make another card to send to Dawn to encourage her on and let her know I'm still thinking of and praying for her!
I used the Window Works Dies and Farmer's Market Florals and came up with these 2 cards:
They are both the same except for the sentiments I used in the centers. I used a small strip of striped Blueberry Sky DSP at the bottom of the cards and then added a piece of Spring Rain cardstock that I used one of the Edger's dies on to create the scalloped edge. I loved using the little Window Works Dies to create my opening for the sentiments...they may be small but there sure is a lot of detail on them! I stamped and fussy cut the flowers from the Farmer's Market Floral stamp set and added them to the side of the die cut window. The 1st card's sentiment is from the New Every Morning stamp set, and the 2nd card's sentiment is from the Phrases & Praises stamp set. A few clear sequins and some heavy baker's twine finished off my cards.
