TIC Day #5 - Tuesday's Inspirational Challenge - "Scrappy Card" sample and RAK from Paula

Good Afternoon everyone! Here is a RAK I received from Paula at "Paula Ponders". Isn't it an absolutely awesome card. I had participated in her sketch challenge and she sent me this beautiful card. She used the fabulous Baroque Motif stamp set to create this card. I love the scallop circles. . .it really compliments the design of the image. This card is beautiful in pictures but it's more beautiful in person. Thank you Paula for your beautiful RAK.









If Interested in this weeks TIC Day #5 - Scrappy Card challenge, you still have until tomorrow 12:00 PST to submit your card. Check out a few of the submissions that I posted on my Card Inspired blog site. Click Here for the details of this submission.

Hi everyone! This is a sample of a "Scrappy Card" I made for my husband. In March we visited Washington DC and had a major blast. We did so many things and by far one of the best trips we went on. Washington DC was amazing and to see all the historical monuments and memorials is something I'll never forget. You only read about it and see it in pictures. They are much grander in person.

The card front was created using my Craft Robo. I finally figured out how to weld words together and lemme' tell yah. . .this machine is awesome if you know how to use it. It takes a bit of a learning curve but once you get the hang of it, you can do wonders with it.



I added stamped flowers images from a Stampin Up set but for the life of me, can't remember which stamp set I used. I had stamped and colored these images a while ago and decided I wanted to use them for this card. The images were colored with Twinkling H20 - awesome stuff by the way. Why did I use flower images. . .when we visited Washington DC, we were there when the Cherry Blossoms were in full bloom and the Cherry Blossom festivities were in full swing. These flowers remind me of the cherry blossoms. I added dots using the SU Craft Tool Kit by using the piercing tool. The backkground paper is by DCWV.

In order to keep the card closed shut, I added a green colored paper clip to hold the card together. I attached the flower image to the paper clip so that the paper clip won't be too obvious.

The card opens up to the second fold. I didn't decorate it because the card was already bulky and to add more elements will make it difficult to close. I just added a little label stating that we went on a trip to Washington in March of this year.



The card opens up as a tri-fold card. I added a list of the places we visited during our trip to Washington DC. We visited other places but these are the main ones that we did a tour at.






Here is the card completely opened up. The middle pocket includes postcards and tickets to the Holocaust Memorial that we went to. I added pictures of us visiting the Jefferson Memorial and when the flaps open up, I added a journal of the experience we had visiting the memorial.

Maria,
I love your work. I especially appreciate the fact that you use sets from previous years. We have spent so much on our stamps and it's nice to be able to get ideas for these sets. Thank you for not forgetting about them!
