Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #5

Hello everyone!! Happy Tuesday!! Can you believe it is MARCH already? Wow!! This year is flying by!!

Today I am here to share the card I created for Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #5. I cannot believe that this is already the fifth challenge. I have had so much fun creating for this blog!!

For my card, I used the top row across-green, beads and geometric shapes.

I was so excited when I saw this badge because I was intrigued with using beads on my card WITHOUT making a shaker. Here is what I came up with:

I started my card off by die cutting a rectangle of green and white striped patterned paper and adhering it to a Kraft card base. Next, I die cut three triangles with MFT's "Triangle Die-namics" from paper scraps and adhered them over my striped patterned paper. (geometric shapes)

I then die cut the word thanks three times from Kraft card stock using a Simon Says Stamp die. I glued the layers together and the fun began!!

I took a piece of gold thread and weaved it in and out of the thanks sentiment, catching green seed beads at different points in the word. The beads were adhered to the sentiment using micro glue dots so they would not slip.

I then weaved more gold thread around the word and adhered the thanks to the card using Ranger multi-matte adhesive. I LOVE how this came out!! It is still flat enough to send too!!

Please come on over to Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge and enter a card for Challenge #5. I cannot wait to see what inspires you to make a card!!

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!!
