CASE STUDY Challenge 176 card

I thought this challenge looked like fun - I had a paper scrap given to me by my sister and I have been holding on to it … forever and knew immediately this is the challenge for it.

CASE study Challenge No. 176

And I think when you see my card you will instantly get why I chose to use this paper bit.

Isn’t that paper fantastic?

I got to use my crop-o-dile for this project, I’ve been looking for an excuse (besides using it to fix my cheese grater today too, but that is a whole other story) 

CASE-176-2_Barb-Derksen

I backed the paper with a scallop cut of black cardstock.  I cut the plastic layer out of recycled packaging (I think from a cuttlebug embossing folder package if I’m not mistaken) I cut the black lettering and a heart from black vinyl and then the smaller heart from sparkle vinyl.  I popped some holes in the sides of the tag and added the grommets.  Then I lined up the vinyl bits, stuck them on (popping the heart out with some foam tape) Lastly, I used some gold twine and black crochet cotton to ground the tag.

When I got finished I decided to jazz this card up a bit by cutting the face into an angle (leaving the bit where the tie sits) and adding a scrap of paper to the bottom of the inside.

Thanks for visiting!
