This week over on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog we have a theme of "Nip and a Punch"...we want you to use punches and/or die-cuts on your card.
This week we have a new Guest DT member, Jilly of Jilly's Creations. We also have a sponsor, Sheetload Shortcuts who kindly provided the whole DT with a pack of wonderful clear and frosted acetate cards and also some giftcard holders. She has also provided the same wonderful prize to two lucky winners.
For my card I have used an image from the "Wild Sprouts" range at The Greeting Farm she is called "Dahlia" and I have coloured her with my Copics using the following colours...
Skin - E000/E00/YR00/E11/R20
Hair - E43/E47/E49
Flower - V06/V09
Clothing - YG03/V09
Tights - YG11/V06
The papers I have used are all by DCWV from the "Latte" paper pad, and matching cardstock stacks. For the punches I have used my Stampin' Up oval and scalloped oval punches and also my oval Nestabilities. Finally I have embellished with Stampin' Up choc chip taffeta ribbon, Prima and Craft Fairy blossoms held together with a Doodlebug sugar coated brad and spacer. The sentiment is also from Stampin' Up.
As the card is acetate I have stuck matching size papers on the inside of the front of the card. I have also used one of the giftcard holders on the inside of the card, and I have attached more papers to cover it. I left the inside of the giftcard holder plain so that I can write the birthday wishes on the inside of it.
This is only my second ever acetate card, and I am really pleased with how it has turned out. Below is a picture take from another angle to show you the dimension and a little of the inside.
