This week at Frosted Designs, the challenge is to use colored cardstock only (no patterned paper). Sounds easy? I thought so too!!!
I decided to make a note pad for me (for a change) and had a hard time with the design that would use all solid colored cardstock. Here is what I finally came up with!
I put a 3x5 rectangle on Layer 2 of my Gypsy so I knew how to size my letters. On Layer 1 I put several "L"s within the 3x5 rectangle.
In the center is Creative Memories Reminisce Accents (Monogram Shift Lock) sized to 1.59 inches.
From top to bottom, left to right:
CM Storks Delivery (LC) sized to 1 inch
Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art (UC) sized to 1.82 inches
Paper Lace 2 (UC) sized to 1 inch
Rock Star (UC) sized to 1 inch
Songbird (LC) sized to 1 inch
Paper Lace (LC) sized to 1 inch
Sans Serif (UC) rotated 90 degrees sized to .80 inches
Quarter Note (UC) sized to 1 inch
Pooh Font Set (UC) sized to 1 inch
I welded the letters all together.
I cut it out of purple cardstock.
I put the design on a 3x5 piece of green cardstock. I lowered the design so when I punched the holes at the top I would not punch through it. I cut out a 3 1/8 x 5 1/8 piece of chipboard and purple cardstock for my cover. The top of my cover looked a little bare so I added some purple ribbon and green twine.
I used my ATG gun to adhere the cover. I used my Bind-It-All to complete the note pad. I have a tutorial HERE for making note pads with the Bind-It-All. I use blank 3x5 notecards for my paper.
I am delighted to design for Frosted Designs! I hope you consider entering our challenge this week!!
