Magical Monday!


Welcome to another Magical Monday! I must admit that this is my favorite Magical Monday YET! :D This week Nina has challenged the design team to create a gate fold card using this gorgeous image which is called "Beached Boat". Isn't this image just fantastic? I love all of the detail that she put into it. It's perfect for a masculine card! If you would like to snag this digital image for free then head on over to "There's Magic In The Air"! Nina is giving it away free this week only! :D Also, if you decide to play in the challenge, you too can be entered to win a yummy prize! All you have to do is use this image and create a gate fold card, post it online, and link it to the challenge post!

For my card I printed the image on water color paper and colored it in with my Stampin' Up! markers and blender pen. I sponged the edges with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink and applied a SU! rub-on to the bottom left corner. I then cut and folded my card stock and layered on some BasicGrey paper. After attaching my image I stuck on a button that would hold the card shut and paper pierced around both panels. The twine was a final little touch that I felt really tied the whole look together!

Well that's it for me today! I am enjoying my last two days of freedom before I have to go back to school! I will be back tomorrow with another Jbelle challenge so don't miss it!

Steph, this is just beautiful. I love the pp you used and how you paper punched around it. The cord was the perfect touch as well as the red button. GREAT CARD!
