Today, I want to share the card that I made for January AEI♥U challenge, which was to create a card using this photo for inspiration:
I love those striped rain boots --I think they're adorable!
I was inspired by the design of the photos (the large pop of red near the top, the stripes, the grey background) as well as the colours. Here's my card:
I started by layering some Echo Park patterned paper over some PTI smokey shadow cardstock. Since I don't have an Avery Elle stamps (yet!), I used the pretty digital stamp that Avery Elle supplied for the challenge. I printed it out onto PTI pure poppy cardstock and cut it out by hand. I needed a birthday card, though, so I decided to layer a Simon Says Stamp diecut over top, on which I stamped with PTI's Movers & Shakers Sentiments. I added some grey Offfray ribbon as well as some PTI buttons & twine and some stitching to finish it off.
Thanks for looking!
