Here's my card:
For my corrugated cardboard, I used a couple of Starbucks coffee cup sleeves that I'd saved. From one of them, I cut the branch die.
I brushed gesso randomly over the other one and, when it was dry, I brushed liquid gold paint randomly over it. I then die cut the three stars.
I used the splatter stamp from SU Gorgeous Grunge for a background to the branch, stamping it with gold ink. The sentiment is stamped with brown ink. I rubbed the brown ink pad over the die cut branch to add a bit more definition. I hung the stars from the branch with gold cord.
The focal panel is popped up on fun foam.
To meet the criteria of CAS Mix Up, I have stamping, corrugated cardboard, and, for my choice, I have die cuts, gold paint, gesso, and gold cord.
We've got some wonderful inspiration from the Design Team and our Guest Designer, Julie Beech of Handcrafted by Jules. I'd love to see what you can come up with for the challenge. You have until February 24th to enter. Please be sure your entries include stamping, corrugated cardboard, and at least one other choice from the CAS Mix Up list of "your choice options". And also remember that we are looking for clean and simple cards only.
