Congrats / CTO Challenge #59

Hi everyone!

We hope you can pop on over to Celebrate the Occasion and join us this week for challenge #59. The design team has some awesome inspiration to get your mojo flowing. This week the challenge is to create a monochromatic Congratulations card!

I had blue on my mind and decided to pop over to the Silhouette store and see what background cut files they had. The one I chose is chevrons, which seems to be all the rage lately. So I purchased the background file and a label file. I sized the background down to fit my card size and cut away. I picked a background paper to match my cardstock choice, attached that to my card and attached the cut file on top of that. A little bit of twine, my label with Congrats stamped on it and a button and my card was finished.


Supplies used: cardstock - blue; patterned paper - No Sweat in Peechy Keen by American Crafts; twine, button - my stash; stamp - Almost Mounted Stamps by Art Declassified; Silhouette Cut Files
