Card: WIP Card Competition - August 2012

I've previously purchased Wrapped In Paper (WIP) card competition kits but never got around to making the card and participating in the competition. I decided to participate in the August card competition to stretch/challenge myself. Since joining the Creative Card Crew design team and trying to playing more in other challenges, I find that I'm my creative mojo is in full swing and I just want to see what I can do.

The rules of the WIP card competition is that you must use a little of everything in your kit, but you are allowed to add to the card with your own stash.

I decided to make a tri-shutter card. I'm loving this style card at the moment, it just opens itself up for creativity.

Here is a list and photo of the kit contents:
  • 1 - 12"x12" pattern paper
  • 2 - 6"x12" cardstock (1 x blue & 1 x white)
  • 1 - 6"x12" pattern paper border strip
  • 1 x small wooden peg
  • 5 x blue bling stars
  • 1 x approx 6" ribbon (white)
  • 1 x fabric flower rose style

Here is a close up of the kit contents:

 reverse side of 6"x12 pattern paper border strip
 approx 6" ribbon

Here is the card I made using the above kit contents plus a few extra pieces from my own stash. My supplies:
  • Stamps: Just Johanna Swirly Background 100W / Kraftin Kimmie Princess Petunia
  • Embellishments: clear embossing powder mixed with Stampin' Up! dazzling diamonds / washi tape / Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and crown pin) / Key (I think 7gypsies but can't really recall) / Glimmer Mist - Pink Bubblegum, Cranberry Zing, Turquoise Blue & Jack O'Lantern / Nestabilities Labels 11 / Kaisercraft bling
  • Inks: Versamark / Tim Holtz Salty Ocean distress ink / Momento black

I had so much fun making this card & really happy with what I was able to create from the kit. There are so many talented ladies/gents out there that have helped to inspire me with this style card.
