A Fun-Gi

During my crafty weekend, I made a few cards for actual challenges. This one is for the now-expired Nacho Average Challenge:

and here's my card:

I stamped the mushroom on white card stock, colored it and cut it out so I could pop it up over the circles. I did it that way so I didn't have to line anything up in the white circle and probably mis-stamp or miss-cut it and have to do it over and over again. I am so lazy. 

The sentiment was stamped on a strip of white card stock, then trimmed and cut and trimmed some more until I got it as narrow as possible. I like this method when the letters with tails would make the rest of the sentiment strip too wide.

The washi tape stands in as a ground for the whole thing, plus a spot of color, plus the second strip in the sketch, for which I missed the challenge entry cut-off, of course.

The Kraft panel was boring, so I added faux stitching with a white gel pen.

I think this card will be a great addition to my basket at the coffee shop. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
