StampARTic's first challenge...

..is a folder card. The very talented Camilla has set the first challenge and directions are on the blog. This was my first attempt at this type of card! The StampARTic DT made such beautiful cards I had to give it a try. I just got this stamp in the mail and had to use it!! I think it is so cute!! I wanted a distressed look to background of the main image but it didn't turn out quite like I had pictured!! (LOL) I will have to have another try at it another time. I really like the look of this card type and am happy with the way it turned out! I really liked the diecuts that came with that Cosmo Cricket pack and that is what I have used on the inside along with the skates stamp from Magnolia.

Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Bazzil CS
Inks: distressed inks
Accessories: Buttons and twine ~ stash, snowflakes ~ cuttlebug, glitter ~ Martha Stewart,ribbon ~ Cosmo Cricket, rub-ons ~ Creative Imaginations


Well thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday season!! (Really just can't believe it is upon us already!!)
