January Card Challenge

Post by wimom » Wed Jan 01, 2020 5:49 pm

Happy New Year everyone – wishing you all a wonderful 2020! This month also marks the start of my second year hosting the Card Challenge. I took a look back at the 2019 card challenges and found the most participation (16 Cherries) was the month I posted a sketch, so this year I am going to try to include a sketch option, maybe every month – we’ll see how it goes.

For January’s Challenge, you may submit only one card but you have options:

Option 1: Use an animal or animals on a card. This could be anything from a butterfly to an elephant, realistic, cartoonish or even just a silhouette.
 
Option 2: Use the sketch below. This month I made a sketch with measurements based on my sample card. Remember, the sketch can be turned sideways and otherwise adjusted to fit your card idea – the sketch is just a starting point. 
 
Option 3: Earn a bonus by making a card using both the sketch and an animal or animals.

My sample, using Photoplay Muttcracker, will be going a friend who sent me a nutcracker-themed gift. When I saw the nutcracker items she sent I knew I had to make her a Muttcracker thank you card!

The rules:
-- You may submit only one card this month. If you use the sketch, please tell what part(s) of the sketch you incorporated.
-- Open only to new, paper cards (no digi). 
-- Post to this thread by 11:59 p.m. January 31.
-- You may combine with one other challenge if that challenge allows.

A $5 ACOT gift card will go to one Cherry via the random number generator. Please ask if you have any questions.

Great challenge, lots of options!  Your friend is going to be thrilled when she opens this card!  So cute!

I really like that card sketch and your sample.   I'm determined to get this one done since I don't make enough cards.

Here is mine, color is way off as my camera no longer wants to connect to my computer and had to use tablet.  But I took a shot

Rhonda, I used option 2 - followed the sketch for measurements and placement.  Instead of stitching, I inked the edges.  Thank you for the challenge :)

I appreciate the measurements, more comfortable with them, even if I vary a bit. Reading through the new challenges I realized I might be able to play! My DGGD has crafting supplies. I’m going to look around.

I made a card. It’s uploaded from my cellphone and is sideways, can’t get it to go upright. Also I haven’t figured out how to link and show on this challenge thread. I hope you will go look for it. I used option 3.

Joyce, I found it and posted it back here for you. Love the flowers in the lion's mane! If I edit and then save a photo before posting it stays upright -- maybe that will work for you? I'm glad you found the measurements helpful!

Used animals and sketch provided.  I used the rectangle shapes from the sketch.  The bottom shape with the gold circles is washi tape.   Great challenge.

I used an alpaca as my animal with your sketch and combined with the January Manufacturer challenge.

I used option 3:  the sketch provided and an animal.
