Waffle Flower October/November Challenge Take 2



Hey everyone!  I'm here to share my second card for the current Waffle Flower Crafts challenge.

For this bi-monthly challenge there are actually two challenges to choose from.  This time around we have an inspiration photo:



And a technique challenge:



Since I tackled the inspiration photo last month, I'm tackling white space this month.

White space is definitely a challenge for me, and to be honest after I made this card I think I kind of cheated.  Since although there's lots of white, I'm not sure this qualifies as white space, since I technically used something in the white space. 



Anyway, my love affair with the Flower Circle Dies continues.  For this one I used the die to dry emboss the pattern in a piece of cardstock, and then die cut it from another piece.  I used the negative cut from that as the front panel, embossing a sentiment from Holiday Labels - Give Thanks.



This was really pretty easy to put together, very few steps, but I think it makes a big impact.

OK, now it's your turn to play along!  You have until November 25th to play along.  Here are the details:

  • Use at least one Waffle Flower Crafts product on each entry. List the product name in your blog post. If you use an online gallery (Flickr for example), list the name in the description. This is especially important when you used a product in a clever way that might not be obvious to people. Our team will be looking for them but please help make it easier for them.
  • Enter as many times as you want. If you have a blog, please include the graphic of the category you are entering in and link to the challenge post. This is to help your readers and crafty friends to find us and join the fun!
  • Combine up to 3 other challenges.
Thanks for stopping by!
