Created by Hand Challenge Nov 27th.


This week's challenge at Created by Hand is to use burgandy and vintage brown together, creating anything we want.

But I GOOFED! I set to creating right away, before I read Kelly's instructions for this to be CHRISTMAS art. ACK! So...this one isn't. But I'll leave it here anyway because I like it! (lol) I'll create a more Christmas-y piece later and add it to this post. Sorry Kelly!

I'm enjoying creating "Z cards" this week. I used two Gentle Thoughts stamps, this little boy vintage image and this yummy mulberry paper from Quiet Fire Design. The Bazzill burgandy and brown cardstocks are from Quiet Fire too. I sprayed the mulberry paper (as well as my left hand and arm, right up to my elbow!) with Krylon Gold Webbing spray.

The musical stamp is manufactured by Heather's Stamping Haven.


Here's a small image of the opened card. As you can see, the inside sentiment is hidden by the outside image when the card is closed.

Here's how I created the card:

1. Cut base cardstock to 5" X 10."
2. Score at 2.75" and 5.5."
3. Cut papers to fit over base cardstock as shown.
4. Add images and sentiments to suit yourself.

These are simple to create, and just a little bit different. Have FUN! Thanks again for visiting. I hope you'll leave your thoughts.

Christmas card or not, it is a wonderful "Z" card. Love the little boy image as well as the sentiment. I've never made a "Z" and now I think I MUST! :)
