Crafty Individuals July Challenge

I've made this card for the Crafty Individual's July challenge ( is to use the colours pink, cream and brown (neopolitan ice cream immediately pops into my mind, yum-yum) and to use at least one of their products.

For the brown card I used a 5.5" square of card and used the border punch to create the scalloped edge.  The way that I had used it meant that the panel popped out from the original mat.  I used the square frame that was left as an additional mat directly on to the pink card and used 3d pads to lift the centre layer.  Even though the punch isn't one of the punch around the page ones I managed to get a uniformed corner that looked ok

  1. Hi Margaret... this is a lovely card. Love the colours, love the stamp... love it all. I am very fond of anything vintage (although I'm not so good at making vintage projects sadly). This is just beautiful however. I really appreciate your support and encouragement Margaret. This past week has been a sad week. My young cousin, Richard (29) died of cancer. It was really sad because his mum, fiance and friends believed he was getting better. It broke my heart not only for the parents but also because this is the second time my elderly aunty is going through the loss of a grandson. Please pray for this family (God knows who they are). Much appreciated. Wendy xx
