Belli Challenge #46 - Wrapping Paper


Here is a card I made for Belli Challenge #46, Wrapping Paper. What better way to match a card to a gift you are giving by using the wrapping paper on your card???!!! So I just dressed up my card to make it look like a gift!!! I used Stampin Up's Shimmery cardstock for the base of this card. Then a layer of Stampin Up's Brushed Silver Metallics cardstock. The next layer is my wrapping paper. I used a sheer organdy vanilla ribbon to wrap around the card. I stamped the Do Not Open til Dec 25th, from Winter Post in the Stampin Up's Holiday Mini catalog, in Encore's Gold Metallic ink and punched it out with the Designer Series label punch and framed it with a Silver Hodge Pode Hardware frame. I stamped the words from To You & Yours in the Encore's Silver Metallic ink and punched that with the large oval punch and mounted that on the Brushed Gold Metallic cardstock punch with the Wide Oval punch. I tied the words on with the Gold Elastic Cord.
What is the Belli Challenge you ask? Each week, my great friend, Chrissy D gives us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms! With a constant flow of new things coming out, we tend to forget about the other things I have and they quickly become clutter!
If you would like to participate in this Belli Challenge, here is what you need to do. Make your own card and/or item. Post it to your blog or SCS gallery. If you upload to SCS, please use keywords CBC46. Then head on over to Chrissy D's blog, which can be found here: http://www.chrissyd723.blogspot.com/
Post a link to your item in the comments area for Belli Challenge #46. You will then be entered to win a prize that she has determined. Dont forget to check out all of the other Design Team members blogs for some AWESOME INSPIRATION!!!! The Design Team blogs can be found on the left hand side of my blog Labeled: Belli Challenge Design Team!!!
