Did you know that February 26th is Levi Strauss' birthday, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levi_Strauss. Our challenge this week at Embellish-It Scrapbooking this week is to create a birthday card or any occasion card for someone inspired by ads of the jeans, using pictures with the jeans or a part of jeans/tag/pocket/buttons.
So, my card is more of a general card than a birthday or occasion card, though will be given on the occasion of our church retreat this weekend.
Stamps: Spring Blossoms (Sarah Kay)
Paper: Basic Grey, Not Quite Navy
Ink: Memento, Copics
Accessories: Cut up jeans, Patchwork Thickers, Lime Rickey Brad (Basic Grey), Stickles, Martha Stewart Border Punch, lace
I wanted to piece the jeans into my image. I used cut up jeans that used to belong to my daughter and were damaged to the point that they could not be given to the thrift store. I had one dark pair and one very light pair. So I mixed them into the image. I love the dramatic contrast.
I used Mod Podge to stiffen the jeans, and then sent them through the Big Shot with a frame die and flower dies to create jeans flowers. The brad is from Basic Grey.
I used the Thickers and lace on the inside of my card to help hold up the easel. I love the contrast against the navy blue.
Reminder - Embellish-It Scrapbooking has a great deal on ribbon right now.
