CCEE1101 & Crafty Ho's Challenges


The challenge this week at CCEE was to use checks in our card and at Crafty Ho's it was to make a monochromatic card. This is one of those cards that look better in person- the checked DP under the acetate in the diecut (swirl by Sizzix) holes and under the "live life" sticker is much more distinctive in real life. I had seen a card that used this idea and loved the look- cut out an opening with a punch or diecut, attach acetate behind the holes, raise this piece above the patterned paper below with several layers of mounting tape. I added some jewels at the corners and in the acetate hearts to complete the card.
