I am not sure why sleep was not programmed for me today but here I am, up at the crack of dawn playing a Limited Supplies Challenge at SCS.
Todays challenge was to create a postcard like Valentine's Day card that was easily producible. I couldn't be more happier as I have been thinking about the design for the 2009 classroom cards for my children.
I have been eyeing some of my patterned paper recently and when I saw the posted supply list included red and pink I knew I had to use it.
-pinks, reds, white, black or kraft
-limit the amount of layers and embellishments
-limit the hand-cut pieces . . . why cut it when you can punch it instead??
-your creation should be a “postcard” type of card
Here is my take: (be kind it is early in the morning *lol*--I've had a total of 3 hours sleep)
You'll notice I wrapped a strip of paper around the bottom of this labels 1 die cut. You'll also notice I highlighted an area on the heart with a white gel pen and outlined the inner part of the wings with stickles. Of course that is a step you can omit to make it an even faster card but I thought it would add some "sparkle".
