Summer Card Camp 2: Card #13

Sunday, July 21, 2013



I have a card to share today that I made for the Summer Card Camp 2 online class. It was for Week 2's Day 4 challenge, which I found to be very challenging-- create a non-holiday card using holiday stamps.

I seriously thought about this one for a while. I decided that I would have preferred a "create a holiday card using non-holiday stamps" challenge. But, that's not what was issued...

Finally, yesterday, after a little blog hopping online, I was inspired by Sketch #37 at CAS(E) this Sketch:


I remembered that I had a Simon Says Holiday Labels stamp set that had a couple of hexagon stamps in it, so I pulled it out, combined it with Week 2's colour combo and created this card:


I deviated from the sketch a bit, deciding to frame in my sentiment with the hexagons, combining it with Sketch 3 from the class. I love this colour combo and decided that the snowflakes on the off-white hexagons could be viewed as a medallion, if you didn't know if was a winter set. Right?

I also used Papertrey Ink cardstock & Birthday Wishes stamp set (for the sentiment) and some Crate Paper patterned paper.

Thanks for looking!

Looks like this would make a great birthday card for the winter months!! Hopefully we can enjoy some warm weather before we have to start thinking about snowflakes again!!

LOL! I had the same thought - why didn't they ask me to make a holiday card with non-holiday stamps? ;-) I haven't been able to make it to my craft desk recently, but hopefully will get back to this one. I love your take on it (but then, I love everything you do). :-)
