Cards in Envy Design Team Announcement; Challenge “Toes in the Sand”
I was so thrilled to be asked to be a part of the Cards in Envy Design Team! This is a challenge blog that supports a card only challenge with the requirement that every card must fit into an envelope, hence, cards in “envy”. The reason for this type of a card is so they can be donated to Operation Write Home, an organization that supports our service men and women by sending them blank, homemade cards to send back home to their loved ones. As a donator to OWH for several years, I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of Sandy’s team at Cards in Envy (CIE).
My first card for inspiration uses a watercolor and tissue paper technique found at the Technique Junkies. This is perfect for a “ocean” type theme. I cut it out using the new frame dies from My Favorite Things. The digital image is called “Lexie’s Beach Ball” by Chrissy Armstrong found on Whimsy Stamps. The sentiment is My Favorite Things and wavy to simulate the breeze of a summers day. I chalked the clouds and used the pointillism technique for the beach.
Thank you so much for your support and encouragement and I really hope to see you over at Cards in Envy . You’ve got until August 17, 2014, so let’s go make some “Toes in the Sand” cards!
