THANKS A HOLE PUNCH! #GDP027


Join us at Global Design Project this week as we thank you.  That is the fun challenge theme we have for you this week!  Each of the Design Team are going to send their entries to a regular player on the Global Design Project.  I just wish we could send one to you all!  We have so many entries each week and we truly appreciate each of you who play along.


Now this was a fun challenge for me to do, once I decided who I was going to send my card to. Knowing who is going to receive our handmade projects just makes the whole design process so easy.  You can really cater your whole project to that persons tastes if you know them well.

My recipient has quite literally exploded onto the card making scene in January, with her fearless use of colour and amazing talent.  Her projects literally grab me and scream - look at me!  I knew my project had to have colour, vibrant and lots of!!  I also wanted it to be fun and I used the perfect sentiment, in my humble opinion.  A great play on words that any crafter would understand.  (My sweetie just looked rather blank when he read it, lol)

After sponging a rainbow of colours on my thick Whisper White card base, I die cut and punched random sized circles down one side of another piece of  Whisper White card measuring the same size as my card front.  I stamped my sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then adhered it over my sponged card front with a ton of dimensionals!  I must have used a whole packet.  It is being posted to Australia, so I didn't want my card front to collapse!  Juana Ambida, I hope you like it when it turns up in your mail box!

Visit the Global Design Project and play along with this great theme if you have time.  Find out who the rest of the Design team will be sending their cards too while you are there!  YOU might be one of the lucky few!
