Mini card set + a giveaway!

** This giveaway is now closed.

Today's post is really special because the project I am sharing today has a lot of my firsts included and also since I reached 100 followers I am doing a little giveaway. Read till the end for the details :)

List of my very firsts:
1. my very first mini card
2. my very first shaped card
3. my very first stamping a single stamp with 2 colors
4. my very first set of cards
5. my very first card holder (Yay!!)


Cute, eh?? Here is a close up

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!, papertrey ink ; stamps: Basic Grey(Bug/B2), Mark's Finest Paper(sentiment); ink: Momento (Tuxedo Black, lady bug), Unity Stamp Co. (French Lilac, raw Sienna, Viridian leaf); Anchor embroidery floss


A little free hand running stitch, bit of distressing on the edges and highlights with colored gel pens on the image. I am playing along the Card Sets Challenge in the Moxie Fab World  and Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge#41.

And since I am going to give this set as a gift, I also made a card holder from scratch for this little set of cards. This is my entry for the Gift card holder challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Supplies: Paper: Echo Park (For the Record), Ribbon and twine from stash

I up-cycled  some packaging cardboard piece to turn it into this card holder. Covered it up the gorgeous Echo Park "For the record" papers. I used a element sticker from the Echo Park Little Girl collection and turned it into a tag.

Giveaway:

Since I reached over 100 followers, I thought it to be fitting to give this card set and the holder to one of my lovely followers. If you are a follower, just drop me a comment saying you want it and I will randomly pick a winner.

I have a special post and a another giveaway tomorrow. Stay tuned!

P.S. I would love for you to play along my "Overcome the stamping fear challenge". You can try stamping a single image with two different colors, like I did here. Just a hint *wink*.

Hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!
