Hello there! It’s the first Monday of the month, which means it’s time for a new challenge at Cards in Envy. Our challenge theme for the next two weeks is “Just Us Girls”. Create a card suitable to give a girl or woman of any age from 1 to 101. Remember that for our challenges, any embellishments must be less than 1/4″ thick, so that the cards can fit in an envelope and be mailed at the regular first-class postage rate.
I’m trying to build up a stash of cards again for Send a Smile 4 Kids, so I decided to make my card suitable for a child. I confess that I was in a time crunch when I was making this card, so I fell back on a design I’ve used in the past. I cut a strip of designer paper that’s mostly pink and white. I pleated it to give it some extra visual interest before I attached it to the card base. I colored the bunny on a small piece of cardstock that I’d cut into a circle. I die cut a couple of mats for the bunny and assembled them all together. I added a sweet little sentiment, rounded the bottom corners, and my card was done.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the Cards in Envy design team has made! Then we’d love to see your creativity! What kind of girly card will you make? Share your card using the linky tool at the Cards in Envy site by 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Sunday, May 15. Thanks for stopping by today!
