I love quite a lot of projects in this book but I am very short on time this week so opted for a card that looked quite quick and easy, as well as packing a punch with its simplicity. The card on page 44, bottom right - how easy is a few strips of paper? And there are so many gorgeous patterns of DSP you could make this card a million ways and each one would look unique.
The first sample follows the catalogue layout fairly closely although I added the bee instead of the string bow- and I dressed it up a little with the ribbon stitched onto the base.
But then I thought I would do a stepped up version to add a little more detail. By simply adding a background mat, and laying the strips onto an embossed panel it adds a lot more dimension. I thought the honeycomb folder worked perfectly with the bee.
The inside is pretty simple and a bit of fun
thanks for looking this week, enjoy the rest of the hop and take one last look at the Occasions Catalogue to see if there is a project in there that has been on your "to do" list. We'd love it if you found time to make it, photograph it and post it to our Facebook Page- you have until Monday of next week.
Next this week is Judy, so enjoy her wonderful project.
