Did you enjoy the Operation Write Home Blog Hop yesterday??!! Amazing cards!! If you missed it, just go back to yesterday’s post and the link is there!
Yesterday was also the launch day for the Creative Crew’s October Challenges at Splitcoaststampers. My card today is for the DSP/Color Focus Challenge of the month – use any holiday themed designer series paper. I combined it with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #4.
I chose to make the tag an oval and I love how the big panel let the DSP do the work. In this case, I used Spice Cake DSP and I am still in love with it! I thought it would be perfect with the leaves from Day of Gratitude! I created the tag by threading a small piece of More Mustard card stock through the button. Then I created nesting loops of the thin slices of card stock, securing them together with Mini Glue Dots. I got the idea to do this from my clever stamping friend Cindy at Heart’s Delight Cards and incorporated it here. I treated the other button the same way and attached it to a piece of Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon for symmetry.
The cool weather in VA this weekend has it feeling like Thanksgiving so this seems perfect! I hope your weekend has been good. As promised, I’ll be back tomorrow with more details about my OWH Christmas card. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon!
