After a long break, we’re back with our first challenge of 2021 at AAA Cards! This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using up to one third of your card. Our optional twist this time is ‘Summer in January’.
I was a bit stumped by the optional theme at first as I didn’t really feel like creating anything summery when it’s so cold outside… but I have been fortunate to experience a few southern hemisphere summers over the years. As I was thinking of those adventures, I vividly remembered eating an ice cream with a friend in Circular Quay and decided to use that memory as my inspiration for a fun summer in January card!
I used the older Ice Cream Parade die from Simon Says Stamp for the main image and coloured the cones and ice cream sections using my distress inks.
To complete my card, I added a Memory Box sentiment.
My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Stephanie, who has some great cards on her blog.
Hope you can play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by!
