~* Papercraft Star Challenge #21 - Photo Inspiration *~


Hi Everyone!

This week at Papercraft Star, Challenge #21 is to use the Summer Photo Inspiration from Traditionalhome.com to create a Holiday Card or Tag. I decided to make a holiday tag using blues, creams, and kraft.


Supplies:
~Paper: white cardstock, kraft cardstock
~Inks/etc.: distress inks, Versamark, Pearl UTEE, pearl accents
~Misc.: MM polka dot ribbon, burlap twine (thanks Sam!), Tim Holtz texture fade

Instructions:
1. Cut out tag shape out of white cardstock.
2. Use mask and ink up around with distress inks. Remove mask.
3. Emboss with Texture Fade.
4. Ink up swirls with Versamark and add Pearl UTEE. Heat emboss.
5. Add pearl accents all over the tag for a shimmery finish.
6. Mat tag shape with with kraft cardstock. Punch a hole and add some ribbon and tie a bow with the burlap twine.

Come play along with us at Papercraft Star this week! We'd love to see your creations! You have until Noon tomorrow (Saturday)...then the voting begins and lasts until Monday. Come and vote for your fave!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!
