Hey Y'all!!!  I'm so excited to be on the Make The Cards Challenge Design Team!  We'd LOVE you to be part of the weekly challenges too!  Make the Cards Challenge is a place for all card makers to take part in various card creation challenges.  It is a weekly challenge blog to get those creative juices flowing. You’ll also be challenged to use your supplies differently or think of innovative ways to create cards. New challenges are published weekly at 9 a.m. on Monday.  Join the fun HERE.  Here's my Design Team card for Challenge #1.  All the details for this card are below (including links).



The card base is made from ‘Mint Macaron‘ card stock from Stampin' UP!.  I cut a piece of La-La Land Crafts beautiful ‘White Textured‘ card stock for the first layer.  Using double sided tape and ‘Gold Foil‘ card stock from Stampin' UP! I created diagonal lines of gold across the white paper.


I cut three squares from the ‘Gold Foil‘ paper and three smaller squares from La-La Land Crafts ‘Golden Sunset' paper.  Glued one piece of the Golden Sunset paper to one piece of the Gold Foil.  Cut a small piece of the Gold Foil and layered it across the white card base about an inch from the bottom.  Aligned the three squares with the bottom right corner together and used double sided tape to glue them to the card base.



I used one of the La-La Land Crafts ‘Pierced Scallop Circles‘ dies to create a single scalloped circle from Stampin' UP!'s ‘Calypso Coral‘.  Placed Stampin' UP! gold metallic pearls in the middle of each scallop.  Cut the three layers of Whimsy Stamps ‘Thanks Word and Shadow‘ die out of ‘Mint Macaron‘, ‘Basic White‘ and ‘Gold Foil‘ from  Stampin' UP!.  How cute!
