Over The Moon Monday - Pick 3 Challenge



Good morning and welcome to the first Over The Moon Monday of the new year. Did you make any resolutions? How are you coming along with them? I have to admit, I'm not doing real great with mine, but I'm trying.

As you know, I am a big fan of the Pick 3 Challenges. I just think they help to jump-start your creativity. At least they do mine. So, with that being said, let's get started.

Pick 3 of the following 6 things to incorporate into your card. You can choose more than 3, but you have to use at least 3:

  • Valentine's Day image
  • Brads
  • the color red
  • glitter
  • ribbon
  • buttons
I chose too use 2 images that will be coming out in the next few weeks at My Paper Moon, so you are getting a sneak peak. I also chose the color red, and the ribbon. Here is my card:

It was rather easy to make, and allowed me to use up some scraps of paper that had been hanging around. I adhered those onto white cardstock to use as the background, then stamped the cupid image onto white cardstock. I used a nestability die to cut it out, then colored it with copic markers. I cut out red cardstock with the larger nestability die for a background. I put the polka dot ribbon between the 2 layers and adhered it. Then I adhered that to the background. I then stamped "Be Mine" onto red cardstock. I punched a scalloped edge with a Fiskars scallop edge punch onto one side of the red cardstock. I used a black marker to do faux stitching on the bottom edge, then adhered it to the card. On the inside I stamped "Happy Valentine's Day" (of course).

I hope you share your creation with us. Just leave a comment with a link to your creation so we call can see. Also, let me know what you think about the new images.

Until next week, take care and do something crafty.
