Hi everyone ~ It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS!
Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Linda Beeson, and our Sponsor is Stamplorations, who will be giving a $10.00 voucher to the store for the winner. As the hostess for this challenge, I have chosen the code word 'School'...you can interpret it as Back to School, create a teacher card, a graduation card, or notecards for a child's lunch box, if you like!
For this challenge, I created a card, a tag and a gift box:
I die cut the word teacher, but it's difficult to see...here is a close-up:
I created a tag with PTI's Enclosed Apple Die, and the box from WRMK Gift Box Punch Board:
And, here is the whole gift set:
For the tag, I used Brushos on water color cardstock in two shades of red and dabbed a bit of yellow to give it a more realistic look. For the card, I used a technique that I first learned from JJ Bolton in This Post. I created the faux ribbon with thin strips of cardstock, since I don't have that cool new die yet from Pretty Pink Posh :) I also added the black dots to the white cardstock on the box using a stamp from the Ellen Hutson Bokeh set and a stencil. The bow is from La Pareja Creativa...I love it because it's so dainty!
I hope you'll find some time to play along with us! For more inspiration, stop over at the ATCAS Blog to see the creations from the rest of the team ~ Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
