My attempt at Gallery Idol 2011...

Saturday, July 9, 2011

Good morning!

I've been eager to share a very special card I made recently for a chance at Paper Crafts Gallery Idol 2011. The top 20 finalists were announced yesterday on the PC blog, but unfortunately I was not one of them. It was my first attempt at this, and with 1600+ entries, there were some awesome submissions!! Check out the list of finalists, and get ready to vote starting Monday for your gallery idol!

The theme was Congrats and I really wanted to think outside the box for this one. Well, I think I accomplished that goal! What do you think?!?! I would LOVE to hear your comments!

I chose to do a non-traditional shape - A BABY BIB! I hand-drew the shape on cardstock, cut it out, and traced it again on Bashful Blue cardstock, and cut out a border from that as the trim for the bib. I'm not gonna was pretty tedious, but I think well-worth the finished product! I also made a little pocket on the front (you know how a lot of those baby bibs have one so it catches the extra food, lol) for a place to put a smaller card for the recipient's message.

I hope you have enjoyed this! Just a reminder that I have 3 more posts until my 100th post BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY! :)

Cardstock: PTI - White, Stampin' Up - Bashful Blue, Mellow Moss, Pretty in Pink
Ink: SU - Bashful Blue, Mellow Moss, Pretty in Pink, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White
