2 Sketches 4 You Kazan's Sketch Week of Nov 10, 2008 and the Card-A-Licious Challenge of the week

The Card-A-Licious Challenge this week was to make a card out of a file folder. I used a regular file folder and cut it down to the size of a 6 X 6 card and then covered it with paper. The paper is Basic Grey "Boxer." For some reason when I thought of the file folder, I thought of work and then bosses day (it is in October so we just had it). My boss is a man and I usually have problems thinking up masculine card ideas so thought this challenge would be the perfect opportunity!!! Just think, this may be the card I give him next year and it is already made. Maybe I will think of something better during the year but if I don't, I'm saving myself time in Oct 09.









Here is my take on 2 Sketches 4 You, Kazan's Sketch 13. It was really a fun card to put together! The patterned paper is all from the Me and My Big Ideas Christmas Stack that I just got at Michael's (with a 50% coupon!), Joy is from one of the original sizzix alphabets. The earth is a quickutz, the round circle is cut from a revolution cookie cutter and stamped with a Daisy Bucket Stamp. The bird is cut from a sizzlet (the paper is sparkly), the corners are quickutz, and the flourish is a revolution die. The blue felt ribbon is creative imaginations.


Thanks for taking a look at all these!

I love that you made a masculine card for the Cardalicious challenge. It totally makes sense when you are using a file folder. Thanks for playing along!
