Thinking Pink


This week’s challenge at Craft Your Passion is Breast Cancer Awareness ~ ThinPink.We have the fabulous The Cutting Cafe as our sponsor.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used an image and two sentiments from the Think Pink – Breast Cancer Printable Stamp Set from The Cutting Cafe.I printed the ribbon image onto patterned paper then printed the  flowers onto some  cardstock that coordinates with one of the backing papers.Pink gems were added to each flower centre.I printed two pre-coloured sentiments,turning the Thin Pink one into a tab and popping the circular one onto some foam tape for dimension.The papers were a freebie a while back from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.The two patterned strips across the white border are washi tape.Altho’ these are supposed to be Christmas ones they’re just so pretty I’ll be pulling them out from time to time for any occasion card.I realised  once I’d finished making this there was no colouring whatsoever!!Unusual for me but I still enjoyed making it and for such a good cause 🙂

    Now that is really interesting – making the entire card with just paper… no ink anywhere! I don’t think I have ever done that! And I really like the result Lisa!

    What a wonderful mix of patterns and great use of washi tape. Love the paper piecing of the ribbon and the flowers. They play off the background paper so well. Awesome design.
