Hey you card makers out there, it's Paper Craft's Gallery Idol time! Are you in? You have nearly a month to make a "congratulations" card and upload it to the Gallery Idol 2011 flickr gallery. I cant imagine the number of cards they will receive in that time. 1000? 2000? I bet the actual number will be closer to 3000 or, quite possibly, more. How to make a card stand out amongst all those other cards is the big question, isn't it? If you are joining in on the fun, how do you plan on making your card "pop"?
I used a technique I started a couple years ago when I did some design work for Strano Designs using their Ribbon Stiff. Woven ribbon. It is one of my favorite techniques and Ribbon Stiff makes the ribbon a lot easier to work with. I wove red & white ribbon for this card that I posted to the Gallery Idol flickr gallery this morning:
You Did It
I added a 3-D star with some May Arts ribbon and 2 pins with an SRM Sticker sentiment. Not sure if it will get noticed, but that's alright, I nearly had myself talked out of even trying. :)
If you want to try weaving, it is super easy and The Studio Challenge blog's current card challenge is to try weaving or sewing on a card. Be sure to check out my buddy, Val's beautiful card! Go ahead, spread your creative wings a little!
Happy Wednesday, friends!
