I made this a few weeks ago when Brandi visited at Thanksgiving. She came over for a stamping session and I created this while we chatted out little hearts out. I picked a 3D project because I was putting together some Christmas gifts projects for an upcoming presentation at an event in Ottawa.
This little cork board is one of the projects I presented while I was there. The cork circle is actually something I got from IKEA in their kitchen section. As for the back of the board, you might not recognize this right away, but it is one of the Designer paper sheets from the Presto Patterns pack, which I glued on thin chipboard to make it sturdier (the one from the back of paper packs) and then cut around the shape printed on the paper (Brandi's suggestion). To add colour to the paper, I masked off sections with Post-It notes and added ink with a sponge.
The word was die-cut with the Go Go Boots Alphabet out of black cardstock, and I also used my Big Shot to create the flowers with the Petal Party die and the butterflies with the Beautiful Wings embosslits. I've added a couple of pearls in the middle of one of the butterflies to create a body.
I love how those three colours look together. Great combo from Keesh this week, and definitely one I'll want to use again later!
