Thursday's word was "Peace." I used sketch #202 from CPS for the layout of this card. I also used the challenge at Paper Sundaes, which was "distressing." I also used the photo inspiration from Crafty Hos for the idea of this card. The card is 3 3/4"x9." I sanded the edges and inked the edges for the distressing. I also used some alcohol ink and rubbed it on the card to add to the look. I cut some blue patterned paper at 4"x3 3/4" and adhered it to the card. I then edged the paper with some dark blue ribbon and layered that with the patterned blue ribbon. I cut the three peace symbols from Cars. The largest is cut at 2" and the smaller two are cut at 1 1/2." The sentiments are from a stamp in my stash.
Friday's word was "Love." For this challenge I made a matching card and treat box set. I used Laura's sketch at 2S4Y for the card and I also made this for the 3-D/template challenge at Just Us Girls. I used Tags, Bags, Boxes & More for the heart box. I then wrapped a ribbon around the box. I cut the cupid from Sweethearts at 2 1/4." I embossed the white layer with Swiss Dots. The "for you" is also from Sweethearts, cut at 1 3/4." I used some xmas red Stickles around the heart at the top of the box. The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and I used the same paper that I used for the box. I cut some shimmery red cardstock at 5 1/2"x2 1/2." I then cut some white cardstock 1/4" smaller and embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder. The cupid is cut at 2 1/2" and the "love" is cut at 1 3/4."
Saturday's word was "Happiness." I used the sketch by Kazan on 2S4Y for this card. The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of white cardstock. I cut some floral patterned paper at 5 1/4"x4" and adhered it to the card base. I wrapped some blue ribbon around the card and tied it off. I then stamped the sentiment on some white cardstock and then trimmed it to fit. I cut some glittery blue cardstock 1/4" larger and adhered it all to the card. The vase and flowers is from Country Life and cut 2." I finished it off with some flat-backed pearls in the center of the flowers.
