I feel so good today 'cause I actually had time to get "other" crafting done! Aren't you proud of me??? I have been so swamped lately that all I could do was the Paper Doll projects! I was really afraid that you may get bored or me or something - and say - oh, I'm not going to check out Mod Paperie anymore - she doesn't have any new stuff... so...... I'm going to try all my best from here on!
So, what initially inspired me to make something was because of SVG Attic's challenge going on (ends tomorrow evening 5PM PT). I've gotten to know the SVG artist, Jessica, really well and I just wanted to show support and my love for her first ever challenge! For your info - she just started out her online store, and she's truly amazing - LOVE LOVE LOVE all her designs!
As well, Alyssa, the owner of My Thoughts Exactly (my DT company!) is running a challenge on her Facebook page for her step card week. All you have to do is to make a step card, post it on their wall, and you'll be entered to win $5 GC to Lettering Delights!
So, anyway, the requirements for SVG Attic's challenge was to use one of these collections: Luau, Little League or Cape Cod sets. I decided to make a step card using Cape Cod collection, and add some Just Beachy embellishments in there as well! Smart of me, huh? Kill two birds with one stone!
It was my first ever step card that I made - and I had a lot of fun with it! I don't know why I haven't made one before! You'll for sure be seeing more step cards from me in the future!!!
So, ready to see my card I made??? Ta-da!!!!
Do you like???
The side view! Even though I have so many foam tape behind the cuts, it actually closes very nicely!
The boat in the background... you can't really see the waves, but it's there!
... and the sentiment comes from Pink by Design "Summer Vacation" stamp set. Doesn't it totally go with this card???
I also love all my Maraschino twine additions here from The Twinery!
Oh, and I also sprayed the base cardstock with Tim Holtz Glimmer Mist - Leather to give kinda sandy look.
Anyway, that's the card - hope you like!
I also wanted to let you know that you're also in for a very exciting weekend!!!! Me, along with other talented crafty girls are hosting a Summer Shinding Blog Hop! I'm so excited to share my project with you, so please come back on Friday to see it! I'm going to have some blog candies as well, so fun! Fun! Fun!
Hope to see you all here!
