Happy World Card Making Day!!!!

Hope you're having a wonderful Saturday :)

Today I have 2 things for you!

First, I have a fun little Pink Paislee card that I made just for WCMD. I have included step-by-step instructions for you to play along! Each design team member of the the Pink Paislee team will also have a card up on their blog, including instructions on how to re-create it.

If you get the chance to create a card today based on any design you see from the team we want to see it! Anyone who posts a link to a card inspired by our team will be entered into our “card pack giveaway.”

So….create a card using the instructions from one of our team members and you will be entered to win!! All you have to do is leave a comment with a link to your creation (posted either on your blog or your online gallery) and you will be entered to win the fun Paislee Prize Pack! We will even throw in 1 of our Pink Paislee show t-shirts!

You have until Sunday night at 5:00 p.m. CST to link us to your card! We will announce a random drawing winner Sunday night!

Here is a link to the Pink Paislee blog with links to all the designer's blogs:
Pink Paislee Blog Post

And after that, scroll down for a Papercrafts giveaway!!!

Here is mine:

Supplies you will need:
Pop Fashion paper (Mary Janes)
Pop Fashion stamps
Black alpha script letters
a flower
Pop Fashion topsider borders
Pop Fashion Accent rub-ons
Pop Fashion topsider shapes
(and I used a little black glitter on the butterfly wings)
All Pink Paislee products used can be viewed here:
Pop Fashion

1. Cut your base paper 6 1/4 x 8, score down the middle. Round the corners. (You can use white cardstock, I used notebook paper).
2. Cut your patterned paper 4 1/2 x 4, attach 1 1/4" from the left.
3. Cut a border top-sider 4" long and attach on the right side.
4. Add a stitching rub-on along the side of the topsider.
5. Take one of the shape topsiders (I used the oval one) and sand the edges. Mount the topsider onto light pink cardstock, leaving a small rim around the edge. Repeat with rasberry colored cardstock, and rough up the edges.
6. Add a stamp to the middle of the topsider (I used the Pop Fashion stamps).
7. Add 5 jewels along the center of the stamp.
8. Add the stamp 'priceless' to the bottom middle, or any other sentiment stamp you wish.
9. Add the word 'so' to the left side, sand the edges of the letters.
10. I took 2 flowers, layered them, and glued them to the right side of the topsider.
11. I then stamped a butterfly image onto rasberry colored cardstock, cut out the image, added black glitter to the wing tips, and slightly bent the wings before placing the butterfly onto the flower.

12. Add small black flowers from the alpha sheet to the dots in the paper, sand the edges first.

Feel free to substitute any product for the above card. If you're able to make one anytime this week, I'd love to see a link to it :)
