Days 206, 208, 209 & 210

Day 206 - Tuesday Triplets
Think I got this one...just it okay to have one panel?!? Oh well, this is also for my personal challenge of making a Christmas card a week (missed last week, so need to make two in one of the coming weeks!). Deets:
  • Paper: Soft Sky, Basic Black, Whisper White
  • Images: Studio G Clear $1 stamps
  • Ink: Palette Noir
  • Other: basic silver wrapping cord, rhinestone stars

Below is my card for the Day 208 - Challenge Combo, (I'll list all of them below), as well as for the There's Magic in the Air - Magical Monday - ribbon and bow.


355 Challenges used:
  1. Day 3: Tuesday's Trio (button/flower/ribbon or button/bow/ribbon) - think I got both of these with flowers on the front and one on inside, the ribbon for the bow, the bow, and the button on the inside
  2. Day 14: DIY (flower embellishment made out of paper) - I may have not quite met this one as I used punched flowers on the front and on the inside)
  3. Day 27: Touchy Feely Friday (3 methods of texture) - the flap is embossed with a cuttlebug folder, the frame is popped up and the flowers and brads are attached
  4. Day 31: I'm Rounding the Corner (rounded corners/edges) - corners of card and flap are rounded
  5. Day 35: Ad Inspired - click on link to see the ad...I was inspired by the flowers on the bedspread
  6. Day 76: Four Corners (embellishments in four corners only) - Did this on the front -- I didn't count the eyelets or picture turn as embellishments as they are functional - the eyelets bind the flap to the frame and the turn is a closure
  7. Day 100: Manic Monday (use red, orange, yellow, green, blue (no pastels)) - think I got this one with the patterned paper on front, the solid colors used throughout
  8. Day 102: Combo Challenge (at least one challenge from March, April, and May) - see above I have at least one challenge from each of these months
  9. Day 105: Sing-along Saturday - Rainbow Connection (be inspired by this song) - Rainbow paper!
  10. Day 118: I've Been Framed (use a frame on card) - yellow frame for the window
  11. Day 124: DIY: Computer Generated (something generated from computer on card) - the image on the inside is a digital image from There's Magic in the Air and the quotation was printed from the computer
  12. Day 125: It's a Snap (some kind of closure on/for card) - the picture turn on the frame hold the flap closed
  13. Day 130: That Tickles Me (humorous card) - I thought the quote from George Carlin was funny...
  14. Day 135: On the Outside Looking In (window on card) - used an transpency to make the window
  15. Day 137: I'm in a Bind (bind 2 pieces together) - flap is bound to the frame with eyelets
  16. Day 138: She said, and I Quote (use a quotation on card) - Quote on the back of the flap is from George Carlin
  17. Day 152: Peek-a-Boo to You (have a fun flap on card) - blue piece is the flap and hides both the quote and a peek at the inside image!
  18. Day 155: Super Sketchy Sunday - click to see the pretty close to the true layout

Day 210 - Try a Technique (sanding) - hard to tell but the edges of the leaf and the sentiment panel were sanded...wish I'd had some of the core'dinations CS! I tried to ink the sanding so it showed up a bit more...still not real obvious
