Over at Card Making World, the challenge for January 2011 is A New Beginning. It is also the theme for Try it on Tuesday (previously Tuesday Taggers). After much thought and suggestions from friend, Carol, I came up with the following.
here and it can be downloaded very quickly!
I cut the shapes from blue and white cardstock then layered them together. I put Kindiglitz on the words and numbers to make them stand out a little.
I cut a label with my spellbinders die, embossed the edge then distressed it with Chipped Sapphire DI. It makes the embossed edge stand out quite well.
I attached a ribbon with a knot to the bottom of the layer then attached the lot to the card, after I had rounded the corners. The bottle and glasses were from some sprinkles that I picked up at a local craft shop some time ago, but they worked out quite well! The card also fits the Stamp Something Challenge which is on this week as well.
I made up a template for the pages and printed them onto A5 paper (doubled sided) with enough pages for 52 weeks of challenges!!! I then put them together and bound them with the Bind It All. I tied pieces of fancy yarn to the wires to add a little contrast!
I still have not finished my 12 Tags of Christmas, but I will get there!!
