~ 365 Cards Blog Hop ~

Welcome to 365 Cards blog hop.

The team was given a challenge for this blog hop. Before that, we were sent a package to play with. The theme was to make a card that represents my style. Now I had to scratch my head as my style has changed tremendously over the past few years. Firstly, I switched from being a paper scrapper/card maker to a digital one i.e. I rather print out digital images and create my card as opposed to using physical papers and embellishments. So when I saw what was in the package, I had to think real hard how to use them. I decided that I would use them as I saw fit. I was glad that I had washi tape and twine in the package. I knew I was going to play with them as those are my favourite items. After a good hour or so, I came up with this card:


Here's what I did. With the washi tape, I tore strips up and laid them on the card stock. Then I punched out a border and laid it in the centre. The centre piece with the word 'LIFE' was cut out from a piece of paper. Added a bit of embellishment and I'm done. Left the sentiment on the cloud blank (for future use...)

I certainly enjoyed what I did although it was hard work as I'm so used to creating my card digitally for print out and to assemble them altogether. It's easier to see the finished product on a laptop than to try and imagine it. Not to mention once you cut up papers, that's it! It's gone! Digital papers are much easier to play with!

For a chance to win a package of goodies from Pam, just leave a comment about how do you go about creating your card? Do you sketch it first? Or do you make use of sketches. Or do a particular embellishment dictate how you card would look like? Or maybe it's a particular paper?

Enjoy the rest of your blog hop. Your next stop is Carla. Have a great weekend! TTFN!

Great job, Audrey! You and I could not be more opposite!! I can't do a single thing digitally. I must handle everything!

I love the blue cloud. It give the card such a pop of color. I wouldn't have thought to pair the cloud and the heart with the button, but I like it.

You hard work paid off! I like your Washi background. I like to use sketches, although if I'm working with an image of a certain size or shape, I sometimes just make it up as I go! I don't think I'm very predictable. Thanks for sharing your card! --Yvonne

This is so pretty! I absolutely love how you used the washi tape! I usually land up creating around images and embellies! I enjoy digital but really still enjoy playing around with the physical papers, stamps, etc.

Lovely card, I see what you mean that it could be a little eaiser to make a card digitally, but personally I love the "touchy-feely" aspect of cards with lots of embellishments, embossing etc etc!! Love your card!
