I have now reached the final week as a guest designer for CD Sunday Challenge blog where this week the theme is "Aged to Perfection". I can't wait to see what the Design Team have created, as this one gave me more to think about. Did I have the right material on CD's for it?
Well the answer was yes - purely because back in early April I decided there were certain genre missing in my CD collection, I didn't have humorous, so I purchased a couple. I bought Wine Buffs & La Pashe Wrinklies.
When I was trying to decide which one to use for this challenge I kept changing my mind & swapping between the 2. In the end I chose ...............................
............. Wrinklies. Aren't they cute?
I printed the topper twice so that I could do some decoupage & also printed from one of my Serif digi kits, a pretty pale blue background paper. I forgot to check which digi kit it came from. Then using a scalloped circle die I created my round card & with a smaller size cut a circle from the background paper. Then with the next smallest die I cut out the topper. The card was cut from an A4 sheet of white card & I scored one of the circles about 1" down from the top & adhered it to the second circle to create the finished card. I inked the edges of the background paper to make it stand out against the white card then layered it onto the card. A Promarker run around the edges of the topper to create shadow. I then cut out the couple & their head phones, their ipod & the cat from the second topper. These items were placed on 3-d pads to create the height. I then typed up the sentiment cut it out with a label die I had, inked the edges & attached it to the topper with pale blue square brads. The topper & label were then attached to the card on double sided pads & some blue ribbon tied at the top to finish.
I know just what I am going to use this card for. If you have been following my little excursion into the world of being a Guest Designer you will know that on week 1 the theme had been Weddings - chosen because I was to be married just prior to that date. Well the day I married was also the anniversary of meeting my OH - which we always celebrate with cards. So this card was to be my anniversary card to him - yes, they are a "wrinklie" couple, & no - we don't class ourselves as wrinklies just mature.
Thank you CD Sunday for inviting me to be a guest designer - it has been fun. Thank you to everyone visiting my blog I hope you enjoyed your visit. Why not pop over to the CD Sunday blog & see how others interpreted this theme. Why not have a go yourselves! I hope you will also continue to pop in from time to time to see what else I am creating.
