World Card Making Day Winners Blog Hop


See my World Card Making Day Winner badge (at my side bar)?
 I am one of the 15 winners! I know...it's unbelievable!
Today is a special day as I am joining my fellow WCMD Winners in this Blog Hop.
You can see the blog post about this hop over Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking here.

 Here is the line-up for the hop
                         15. Virginia Lu  <--- you are here

Here's a photo that I took before I mailed 6 of my cards off to the WCMD Contest back in early October.
 And.... here is the winning card for the "thank-you" category. 
Thank you Sew Much 
Thank You: Thank You Sew Much (5 ½” x 4 ¼”)
Card stock: white and kraft ( Michael’s)
Stamps: Notions (Waffle Flower)
Ink: Versafine (Black), Colorbox (white, Classic Paint Box ), Delicata (Imagine Crafts), Ruby (Hero Arts Dye Ink), Versamark
Embossing powder: gold (Recollections)
Accessories: sequins ( Avery Elle) , white strings(Michael's)

1.      Make card from card stock
2.      Stamp the images for the border
3.      Stamp the sentiment in Delicata and emboss in gold
4.      Sew the sequins on with white strings
  060 
It really is a simple card with some fun stamping and stitching. I feel so blessed to be chosen as one of the winners this year! With this huge honor, I would love to spread the love and do a small giveaway. Mind you, I have not received my prize yet as it is safely stored at my sister/brother-in-laws' house near Philly. I am indebted to Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking for this huge honor. It has been on my crafting bucket list to be part of this contest.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking.

I am giving a small prize away for this hop.

Michelle said...

Virginia, your card is beautiful! And it is no surprise that you were a WCMD winner! I have a question (maybe it will be lost in all the comments) - did you put the embossing powder directly on the delicata Gold to emboss? Or did you stamp gold, stamp versamark, and then add embossing powder? I really love the way your sentiment turned out. :-)

Pam said...

Congratulations! You made a gorgeous card. I love all of the gold. I'm so happy you won.

ionabunny said...
