Thinking of You note card

Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you had a great weekend! A new challenge launched over at UnstampaBelles last Monday and today is my showcase day on the blog! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #93 Time for Recess! The twist this month is ‘Luscious Layers.’ The twist is not mandatory to play but we’d love to see your creativity and it will put you in the running for DT Favorite! And there’s a prize in the mix… a $15 (AU) gift voucher… so let’s see what you got!

I created the most adorable ‘thinking of you’ note card featuring a gingerbread man (with a hand-drawn mouth) peeking out of a circular opening on the front of the card. So flippin’ cute! ;)


I chose three coordinating papers and two circle punches to create my background. I popped the main portion of the background up on foam and adhered a thin strip of a different paper down the right side. I punched several 2-1/4″ circles from cardstock, then put the negative pieces into a 2-1/2″ and punched 1/4″ rims which I layered around the circular opening. This created a recessed opening. I placed the third piece of patterned paper behind the opening and tucked in a sweet little gingerbread man. I adhered the sentiment under the aperture to finish the front.


I decorated the inside with some leftover pieces of paper and a strip of cardstock used on the front, leaving plenty of room to write a custom message.


One more look… this is just so stinkin’ cute! Love how it turned out!


I’m happy to enter this adorable card into the following challenges:

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
