Time for another Play Date Cafe Challenge already! It seems like it was just Tuesday yesterday! This week over at the Play Date Cafe they've got a inspirational photo of one of my favorite board games...monopoly!
I think taking the photo of the card was actually harder then making it! All those scallop edges are turned upward and the flower is popped up, plus the sentiment, so my poor camera had a hard time keeping everything uniformly in focus, hence the reason why I have three different photos. I used a scallop punch from Martha Stewart Crafts and cut border strips of 1" in width and covered the entire card front. For the sentiment block I just cut a strip of Melon Mambo cardstock, cut the end like a banner, stamped the sentiment and then added silver dots around the edge with a gel pen. For the flower I used two different Stampin' Up! punches and punched the flowers using silver metal. I pierced a hole through the center of each one, put a brad through and then added a rhinestone sticker to the center. Here is a close up of the flower.
