thanks



Hey everyone, it's that time again - the first Wednesday of the month. (Can you believe it's already December??)  That means it's time for a brand new Scrapy Land Challenge #103.  The theme is always anything goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.

I needed a quick thank you card for my husband to send out.  (That means it needed to be more masculine looking 😀).  This was quick and easy.  It would also be quite easy to mass produce and it's flat for easy mailing.

I started out by using a 3D embossing folder from WR Memory Keepers (Geometric).  I love both of the embossing folders that came in this package and have already used them several time!

Next up I took out several pots of Nuvo Embellishment mousse (Aquamarine, Cosmic Brown, Mustard Seed) to give a bit of color to the white background.  I started with the Cosmic Brown and used a dauber to lightly add color to the raised areas on the card front.  Next I spritzed some water into the Aquamarine to get it nice and juicy and used my fingertip to incorporate the water.  Using my fingertip covered with mousse, I added some of this color to the recessed areas of the card front.


I used the Die-Versions Curly Word Thanks die for the sentiment, but you could use any of these choices as well.  I die cut the word out twice, once from black cardstock and once from white.  I then added Mustard Seed Nuvo Expanding Mousse the white die cut for color.

Now it's your turn to join the Scrapy Land Challenge #103.  You have until Dec 16 to upload your project for you chance to win one of two gift certificates to Scrapy Land.  We look forward to seeing what you create!
