Corrugated Cardboard, Kraft or Chipboard Diva Dare


Loved this Stamping 411 sketch (Saturday Sketch Challenge) and used it for this month's Verve Diva Dare which is to use Kraft, corrugated cardboard or chipboard on your card.  I managed to use two out of the three on my card so I'm a happy camper,  but just realized I totally forgot the ribbon on the sketch...may have to go back and rectify that.

My stash of Starbuck's coffee sleeves came in handy as I gleefully used it for the leaves and the buttons and then matted the gingham panel with kraft.

Found this PTI flower in my scrap pile so decided to use it, and I must say, I am truly beginning to love the PTI button dies!  You  can create a button in any colour you need and they have three great sizes to choose from.  In retrospect, I should have punched out three buttons and layered them to give it a bit more dimension...lesson learned and to be applied next time I use them :)  A tag, a butterfly and some ribbon called it a card. 

Thanks for popping by today - always appreciate your visits :)

I just love that tag with the perfect use of a Starbucks sleeve. I can't believe how perfectly it inked, too. I almost cried today - placed my Verve order and realized I forgot the Leafy Sprigs die that I keep meaning to order....and it's on sale! Now I have more PTI to put on my wishlist....thanks a lot, Marisa ;)

Very pretty, Marisa. I love being able to make buttons with my dies in any color to match whatever I'm making. Love that wonderful paper, too. Dots and checks make me swoon..almost. :-)

Bless your heart for saving your STarbucks sleeves! They sure did come in handy here, and you are so green for using it. :)

This is wonderful! I can never get a tag to look right but you sure can!! I love the texture as always too!

Some coffee sleeves came in mighty handy!!! Love the polka dot ribbon and gingham check!!! I'm thinking after everything I've seen lately that skewed panel panic is definitely a thing of the past!!!

Totally gorgeous card, Marisa! It all looks so soft to the touch - amazing! I need to get the button dies...really great looking. Amazing how the Starbucks sleeve looks on your card! Love recycling and re-using!

Maureen said...

loving all that corrugated paper! Yellow was such a great choice to go with the brown :) The buttons are just so sweet! Thanks for taking the double dog dare! Woohoo! It was sunny this morning when I got up, but a little overcast now. We have to get new patio furniture, but I'm worried we won't use it!! LOL

Wow! Love that pretty yellow gingham paper. So sunshiny! And aren't you clever to save those coffee sleeves--they add so much texture to this fabulous card, Marisa. Hope you had a fantastic weekend!

Andrea Ewen said...

Fabulous design and I must mention that awesome "skewed" tag...hmm...I don't think that you have as much of an aversion as I first suspected, haha! Love the bold colors against the white...this card is a knock-out!
