It's November! Where did the year go??? Since it's the first Wednesday of the month, that means it's time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge! The theme for this challenge is Anything Goes using any brand of dies that Scrapy Land sells. (If you haven't checked out the new look of the website, you definitely should. It's easy to navigate and looks great. The Products page is where you will find all the brands of dies that Scrapy Land sells. There are some new companies on the list too. :-).)
Here are the dies used to create this project:
Sizzix - Ticket-Fold A Long
Taylored Expressions - Thanks
Elizabeth Craft Designs - Merci
Joy Crafts - Eiffel Tower (this was a special order from SL, but here are several other choices)
For my card today, I created a thank you card for a friend that helped me out while I was on vacation. (Unfortunately, her mailman stole the card and all she got was an empty envelope that had been resealed. So, from now on I'm going to tape the back too. :-). )
I started out die-cutting the base of the card with a Sizzix gate fold die (Ticket - Fold A Long) and G45 papers. I die cut both sentiments twice for added dimension and added Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Mother of Pearl) to my Eiffel Tower so that the details of the die cut would show.
Here are some close ups of each section:
The center section (with the Eiffel Tower) can either be adhered permanently or slipped through the pre-cut tabs. If you slip the piece into the tabs, then you can write your message on the back.
So again, thank you Lori for all your help. I'm sorry that you only get to see the pictures though and not the real thing. :-)
