DCM - Shrink To Fit Challenge


Here is my DCM card. I decided to cut the top half so as to enhance the focal point - (hope this is not considered cheating, lol). So this is how I made it! (By the way the camera has arrived!)

Materials:

White cardstock
Red, Brown, Yellow and Green leftover cardstock
Inspiration thick mulberry paper
Anita's Outiline stickers Mothers Day Flowers


How To:

  1. Cut a white blank cardstock to measure the same size of the envelope. Find the middle and draw a circle. Cut the upper half using a craft blad.
  2. Stick co-ordinating cardstock to the sticker and then stick to the mulberry paper.
  3. Use a black permanent marker to draw the sentiment and then stick to card.

I must say this was a difficult challenge for me as I do not like a lot of white spaces. Would love to hear what you think!
