Belli Challenge #104 meets Repeat Impressions CASE Challenge!


Greetings! Today's post is a double challenge post! First up it's a Belli Challenge, the theme of which is: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, but not necessarily a wedding card.  Here's how my card fits the challenge:

Something old - the seam binding ribbon
Something new - the Webster's Pages paper and netting (my birthday gift from my sweet Krafty Kat friends)
Something borrowed - the card layout and theme (that's the Repeat Impressions CASE Challenge part!)
Something blue - the card base, punched border and Santa's little bird friend

For the Repeat Impressions Challenge, we are to CASE (which stands for Copy And Share Everything OR Copy And Selectively Edit) this beautiful card from my fellow Belli Challenge and Repeat Impressions design team member, Darsie Bruno.  She says it took her 30 minutes to make this card....do you believe her?  I don't...it took me thirty minutes just to discern all the details! LOL!  At any rate, I copied the basic layout, although I flipped the main panel and the bow.  I also used the same image, which is this week's Stamp of the Week over at The House That Stamps Built.  I love the vintage feel of this Santa image.

I paper pieced Santa's outfit and used Liquid Applique for the trim. I used several small pieces of gold netting, layering it under and on top of my bow, along with a button and some twine.

Please head over to the Belli Challenge blog for details on how to play along with that challenge and to see the other Belli girls' cards and then head over to the Repeat Impressions blog for the details on our CASE challenge and to see the great cards my other design team members made!  For this challenge the winner will receive an unmounted sheet of RI's 2000 series of winter and Christmas theme rubber stamps… a total of 20 stamps!

Finally, just a reminder that the Creative Belli Challenge is holding a Design Team call.  If you're interested in becoming a Belli girl (or guy??), check out the details in this post on the Belli Challenge blog.  The call is open until December 15th.

Thanks for stopping by!
