Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m delighted to have been invited to guest design with TicTacToe challenge again! As it happens, this week’s grid had the perfect ingredients for a card I was asked at make for a friend, so I was very happy to see the top row which I’ve incorprated into this offering. I’ve also picked up the shades from Color Hues challenge, which were also exactly what I needed
I started by cutting an oval shape from some old pale peach paper in my stash, then glued it onto a 5×7 card blank.
I foiled several of the flowers from Julie Hickey’s ‘fresh florals’ foilable die cuts using WOW’s gold foil, then blended Distress Oxides onto them in ‘dried marigold’, ‘ripe persimmon’ and ‘barn door’. I sat the flowers around the oval on foam pads.
Next was to foil a few of the leaves from the same set, this time using ‘spearmint’ foil and blending ‘rustic wilderness’ onto them, before gluing them around the flowers.
I finished by gold foiling one of Julie’s ‘assorted sentiments’ foilable die cuts (these are all so easy to use – they work by just running the die cut & foil through a basic laminator inside a folded sheet of copy paper!), which I glued onto the flowers. I die cut the numbers from Julie’s ‘sweet pea’ set in gold card and glued them into the centre of the wreath.
Do pop over to TicTacToe challenge to see the brilliant inspiration from the rest of the design team. Which elements of the grid will you use for your next card?
