Hello There Crafty Friends!
There is a new challenge starting today over at...
Making Memories Crafting
 The theme for this challenge is...
Add some Layers

We have a wonderful sponsor...
Here is my inspiration card for the challenge... 
Here's what I used to make my card...
Digistamp Used: Hello Baby Giraffe
Colored with Spectrum Noir Markers
The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'Against The Grain'
Burlap Mesh Ribbon
Unbranded Leaf Vine Dies
Unbranded Rectangle and Square Frame Dies
Darice Permanent Double Sided Tape Roller
Zots Clear Adhesive Dots
White/Orange/Brown Cardstock Papers

I made my card with white paper. After cutting the patterned paper to fit, I taped it to the center of the card. Then I cut a piece of burlap mesh ribbon and glued it across the bottom of the card. I had an extra piece of the patterned paper, so taped it across the burlap ribbon. Next I cut some brown and orange paper in different sizes with the smaller rectangle and square frame dies. Then I taped the rectangle pieces of framed paper horizontally and vertically onto the right side of the card and one square frame, rotated right, onto the burlap mesh ribbon. After cutting the image with a square frame die, I cut a piece of the brown paper and orange paper with the same die. I rotated the orange paper to the right, then taped the brown paper over it, rotating it right slightly less than the brown paper. Then I taped the image onto the papers. Next I added glue dots onto the back of the paper and added it to the left side of the card. I cut some leaf dies in half and glued them behind the sides and bottom of the image.

The Cutting Cafe
  Here is my inspiration card for the challenge...
Here's what I used to make my card...
 The Cutting Cafe Cutting File: Hugs Word Shaped Card
White Cardstock Paper For Card
Rainbow Stationery Paper and Cloud Stationery Paper
Paper Flowers
Butterfly Button
Darice Permanent Double Sided Tape Roller
Ad tech Crafter's Precision Glue 'Fine Line'
Zots Clear Adhesive Dots
Slice By Karim Precision Cutter
Elizabeth Craft Designs Fine Pointed Scissors

I printed out the hugs patterns then cut them out by hand. Then I taped the rainbow hugs paper pattern onto the hugs card. I was worried about using glue being it was stationery paper I was using but the tape roller was not working so well on the paper. In fact, it tore a piece of a letter off. :( So I decided to use the glue and spread it thin. That worked great...though I did have to rub around the text, to make sure there was not any raised areas, after I attached it. I glued the tore piece on too,  then glued a butterfly button over that area to cover the spot. I used a piece of the rainbow paper to glue the sentiment on and glued that onto the bottom right side. Then I glued some flowers onto the left side.

And that's my DT cards.
I hope you like them and they give you some inspiration.
Come on and join us in the fun!

Happy Crafting,
Hugs, Sherry x
