Hello Bastel Traum friends! And welcome back to another one of our monthly challenges, where you can play with us for a chance to win a 15 chf certificate to the Bastel Traum Online Shop (they ship worldwide!) This month’s challenge will run until 15 May 2018 at 8:45 am GMT+2 and the subject will be “Flowers/Mother’s Day”.
For this month’s project I chose to create a card set for my mother-in-law:
She is a big fan of my handmade projects and in the past she would often ask me for a thank you or a birthday card with a specific theme and for a specific occasion. Nevertheless, with work and family obligations, most of the times I would be to busy to get the card to her on time.
So for the last couple of years, I have made her a little card set every April as a combined birthday/mother’s day gift and it’s been a total hit!
This year I used the Build-A-Flower stamp layering set by Altenew and a few sentiments from different stamp sets by various companies (“Celebrate” is from a set by Paper Smooches, “Many Thanks” is from a set by Pretty Pink Posh). My used a wonky stitches die to decorate the edges of my card panels. The beauty of this design is that you could use any sentiments you like from absolutely any stamp set already in your stash!
Once my card panels were ready, I adhered them on to a set of kraft cards and packaged them in a little see through box for delivery. And that’s it for this project! I hope you’ll find our theme for this month’s challenge inspiring. We can’t wait to see what you’ll create!
