WWC258 – Marsha’s Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for our new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday! This week it is Marsha’s Challenge –All About Occassions.

Today’s project is a card / gift card holder featuring Ai Garden Circlet MTF and AI Watercolour – Open Window stamp sets.

After stamping on a circle of watercolour paper they were watercoloured using Distress Inks and Tombow markers.

It was then mounted on a large Spellbinders – Lacey Circles die cut.

The sentiment is from MFT Birthday Greetings Stamp Set, stamped on a strip and foam mounted.

The card flaps open up and down.  The top flap slightly overlaps the bottom.  A panel of DP was added to some dark brown card.  A raffia bow was attached to the corner with a small brad before the panel was added to the front flap.

The shorter bottom panel folds down to reveal a similar panel to put the gift card.

I added a large circle using the same DP to the centre inside panel to finish.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. What a wonderfully watercoloured scene, Helen … the detailing is fantastic … and it’s so pretty on the lacy edged circle! The raffia bow is perfect … a hint of rustic charm to go with the country garden! Hugs, Anita 🙂


  2. What an awesome creation and your watercoloured scene is so beautiful. The recipient is going to be thrilled to receive this beauty!
    Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM and I hope you will join us again.
