Friday Fun Challenge #43

After taking last week off while some of the Friday Fun Girls were at CHA we are back this week and welcoming back Sara to our ranks. Sara had back surgery and has not been in her craft room lately, but she is coming back and we are glad to have her with us and she even gets to be the Friday Fun Hostess this month.

This week our challenge is to BLING IT UP!

I just saw the tutorial for Shadow Box cards a few weeks ago and decided to play around with one. As I was making it and had the inside of the window already cut out, I decided I could just as easily make it a pocket card as well, otherwise where would you sign it?

So where do I start explaining this one? I cut the window/insert with my Cricut. I stamped the Circle Circus images and punched the larges circles with the scallop punch and used my paper snips to cut the rest of the pieces. I need more small circle punches. I used the Copic airbrush and Y19 to add some more color to the images, and then sponged Rich Razzelberry around the edges. I also used my Copics to color some white grosgrain ribbon before tying it onto the pull out tag.

I added more accents with the white flurishes from the Priceless set and used my rhinestone brads to add the final details in the center of the circles and layering it all with dimensionals.


Stamps: Circle Circus, Holidays and Wishes, Priceless
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, White, BasicGrey Eva
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Copic RV99 Y19, White Craft
Accessories: Rhinestone Brads, Cricut Cartridge Accent Essentials, Scallop Circle Punch, Copic Airbrush System, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Paper Piercing, Stampin' Dimensionals
