Welcome to another week on the 52 cards challenge - hard to believe we are reaching the end of January!
Well done to everyone who has been playing along! :)
For this week's prompt there is one main theme.
Make a card featuring some sort of aperture.
Here's what I made:
Paper: My Mind's Eye, October Afternoon
Dies: PTI, MFT, Stampin' Up
Stamps: PTI, Hero Arts
Kraft pocket: Joann's
To make my aperture detail I used a small kraft paper bag. I bought a pack of these in Florida a while ago and they are similar to coin envelopes that you can get over here.
I first masked the inside of the flap at the back with a post-it note so that I could stamp the woodgrain background on just the front.
I then die cut the pinked circle from felt and cut a smaller circle inside the pinked felt piece. I cut the same sized circle from the kraft paper bag and attached the felt border round the circle.
I created a tag to go inside and when it's pulled out you can see the yellow arrow paper that I stuck to the back of the kraft baggie to cover the die-cut hole on that side:
Also when making this card I wanted to use up the 2 sheets of 6x6 paper from my MME pad entirely, I managed that by using the left-over bits to make the yellow details and the cloud tag. Always nice when you can use up a whole sheet of something. I just love MME 6x6 pads as their double-sided papers are really versatile.
Anyway, I hope you have fun coming up with some aperture ideas. :D
