Good Morning Crafters, well I am still standing in as a Guest Designer for The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and this weeks theme is all about "Punches and Dies" and to be honest I am in my element with these I love to use both on my cards just hope you like the result of my playing.
As always our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.
and as always this is providing you have used one of their images on your card, and it was lovely to see that a lot of you had used them on our last Challenge and I hope you will do again this time, but even if you dont they will still offer you 3 digi images of your own choice if you are picked by Random Org. You will find some fabulous images, papers and printables here on their website The Paper Shelter.
For my card I used this gorgeous image
She is titled "Attitude means Everything" and you will find her here, I have printed her onto white card then used my Tonic Square die to cut her out and a scalloped one for the mount. I used some snow writer foam on her collar and cuffs also on her ear muffs to. The sentiment is one from my stash thats been stamped onto white card and then cut out by a circle die and mounted on a punched out Snowflake.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white with a first mount of blue card and the paper is from the Sweetshoppe Designs its a blue background with snow on it and clouds. On top of this I have placed a diecut Fir tree which was cut with Marianne Die, and a used a Memory box border die of trees along the bottom.
I then placed my mounted image in the center and before adding the extra's I took a piece of white pearlescent card in a 7"x 7" size and used another of the Martha Stewart large Border and Corner dies to create the background which was then placed behind the first mount making the card larger.
To finish of I have cut out the ski's and sticks with a Marianne Die and placed to the right of the main image, the final flourish is the two layered snowflake at the top on the right and the sentiment on the left.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of Maries B Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Punches and Dies" Challenge.
