Anything Goes

I have some exciting news for all you crafter's out there!

I'm so pleased to announce the very first challenge for Dawn's Card Swap group.  It's a friendly Facebook based group, but we also have our own website Dawn's Crafty Cards.  Please ask to join the group on our Facebook page if you would like to join in with our challenge.

The theme for this challenge is "Anything Goes" and it runs until midday on 14th August.  We are lucky to have a great prize for this challenge kindly sponsored by That Craft Place of a lovely crafty goody bag of stash for the winner.

There is also a Treasure Hunt to join in with where you will have to collect a series of letters to be in with a chance of winning a crafty prize.  All the rules for the Treasure Hunt are on our website.

This is my first card as a Design Team member for Dawn's Crafty Cards & Friends.  As the theme was 'Anything Goes' thought I would make use of this lovely stamp which was given to me by Dawn.  The stamp decided that the rest of the card needed to be black and white so I embossed the background and cut 2 borders with the Persian Spellbinder dies and mounted this onto some black card.  I cut a butterfly from the Heartfelt Creation dies and added a nice big black bow with a Dazzler in the middle and 2 black stick pins.  I then mounted it all on to a white 8x8 card.

This is a card I have made for my nephew and his fiancee for their wedding on 28th July this year.  When you slip the band off, there is a little box inside where I have put some gift vouchers for them.  I think this kind of card is ideal for small gifts and vouchers.  Creative Expressions have a worksheet on their website showing how to make this card.
