Try It Out Tuesday 12 - Gift Pack Set

This is going to be quick until tomorrow morning. Suzanne, our super talented Design Team Leader for gave us the challenge of creating a carSusana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD), d and a gift set. The first thing that popped into my mind was a candle and bookmark! We've lost power here twice for a significant amount of time and so I thought it would be great to receive a candle and book mark and a great book. That way I've a bit of warmth, light and entertainment!

I picked out Daphne in her Floaty Bear from Eat Cake Graphics from Susana's shop and she just yelled to be put to paper! I colored her with copics, cut her out using my nestabilities and used Glossy Accents to make the floatie look like plastic and stickles for the water. The Retro paper from Dovecraft is perfect for this cutie!

I thought I'd snaz up a plastic container that holds Crystal Light Packets because it's the best thing in the world to drink on a hot day! I accented the top with a few Bella Baubles and ran some ribbon around the side. As for the book mark, I glued Daphne to a coated paper clip. Nothing like a good book and cold drink on a hot day. I'm reading the Harry Potter series right now, but I can feel a few romances coming on! Sorry these last two pictures are so blurry. I'll try and retake them tomorrow after I get new batteries.

Make sure you stop by our Follow Your Heart blog and take a look at all my other Design Team Buddies projects. I just know they'll be fabulous! And I'd like to say "Good-bye", to Lynn who's been so fun to work with this past month and welcome Karolyn who has decided to stay a month longer with us! Lynn, it's been so great creating with you!

Card Ingredients:

Daphne in her Floaty Bear by Eat Cake Graphics, Stickles, Copics, Nestabilities, Bella Baubles, Retro Paper Pack from Dovecraft.
