Hi everyone! This is the fifth Saturday of May which means Just Us Girls has an additional challenge which we call our Wild Card Week. Our hostess, Sue, has chosen to use two or more different pattern papers on our cards.
A friend of mine just became a grandma, so I needed a baby card for her daughter, the new mom. I used one of the new pattern papers from Waffle Flower in soft colors, focusing on blue because the new baby is a boy whom they named Ethan. I pulled out this quilt die and die cut it from white, to use as the frame, and then blue, pink and a butter yellow color. I backed the frame with a piece of white copy paper which was covered with adhesive. I then inlaid the pieces to create a pleasing pattern. The sentiment was die cut in the blue paper as well as twice from white cardstock and stacked together. I added the quilt piece to craft foam and then to a blue base. Sequins were added to the background and shimmer was applied to the word die.
You can see more from our JUGs design team and our May guest, Deborah Frings, on the JUGs blog. This is Deborah's last week with us, and I'd like to thank her for joining us this month and for adding her lovely cards to our challenges.
Thanks for stopping by!
