Mother & Daughters Creations - Thursday Challenge



Did you guys get that SU special a while back where the company had left over Wild Wasabi paper already scored and folded? Well, I placed an order and my demo told me about it so I of course got a pack of it. I remember thinking when I received it what shall I do with it, oh well I guess it's just some extra scrap that is textured no biggie. Then I realized that I can use those scores and folds to make a little "tent" type card or "gift" holder.

Well it's a new month of challenges with the girls from MDC! This month it's my turn to host and for the first week I picked STICKLES! OH YEAH! LOLOL!! This week's Mothers & Daughters challenge is to Glitter Up using Stickles. You know how much I LOVE stickles! I think I use them on every card and if I don't I'm probably not feeling well that day! LOLOL!!


I took this great image by Serendipity and colored with Copics and added loads of stickles. I didn't cover every flower and leaf but probably should have. That might have sent it over the top though. The patterned paper that I used is by Daisy Bucket as is the sentiment stamp. I added a couple of holes up top to run a ribbon through to make a little handle for this cute gift.

So what would you put inside this little tent gift holder? Do you know what my answer is? C'mon you know! STICKLES of course......

I used some more of that great Daisy Bucket paper to add a little topper and this can be tucked or taped inside. I usually use a little adhesive on the back of the topper so it will stick to the inside.


Here is a close up of the glittery flowers. I hope that you can see it as my pictures weren't coming out super clear.




What I also did with this was create a pocket so that you can tuck away a little note to the recipient. The base of the Regal Rose is not fully glued down. I only used adhesive to the sides to leave the top and middle open. Just to show you here is a quick picture with a tag in the "pocket" (for demo purposes only):

Don't forget to stop by the blogs of the other design team members as well. Cindy, Jennifer, Linda, Lynda and Tamara. And the MDC Challenge Blog where you may just find some awesome blog candy!!!


Well that is it for now.





Thanks for stopping by.





Till Later.....
