It’s the 8th of the month which means its time for our third ‘Gem of a Challenge’. Christine has set our challenge this time and it’s to make a card for a special birthday (eg. 1st, 16th, 21st etc).
Now Christine herself is celebrating a very special birthday this week so I made my card with her in mind!
I’ve seen a few of these ‘flower pot’ cards around in blogland so I thought I would have a go myself. It was really fun to make once I’d got all my measurements sorted out! The papers are all MME Bloom & Grow and I stamped Teddy with Rose onto shrink plastic, coloured her with chalks and then punched a hole at the top before shrinking her with my heat gun.
I added some white card to the insert that slots into the pot to make it easier to write a greeting.
Please pop along and visit the challenge blog. The other DT girls have made some gorgeous cards and if you use a Pink Gem image on your card you could win two fantastic stamps!
