Australian Holidays Card – Bastel-Traum Challenge #69

Hello Crafty 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 October 2018 at 8:45 am GMT+2 and the subject this month is: “Journey/Vacation”.

The card I created for today’s post will be for my office mate. She’s Australian and she will be heading back home for the holidays at the end of 2018. So I decided to make her a thank you for all your work and happy holiday card using the cute Australian-themed “G’day Mate” stamp and die set by Ellen Hutson and Avery Elle.

The sub-sentiment “Take it easy” is from the “Hang in there” stamp set by Lawn Fawn and I used the “Stitched Alphabet DIE-namics” by MFT to spell out “ENJOY”.

I created that stitched circle window in the middle of the card using my Lawn Fawn “Outside In Stitched Circle Stackable” dies and I added stitching to the edges of my card panel using a wonky stitches die (there are a few out there, mine is by Avery Elle).

That’s it for today! If you decide to play along with us, make sure to tag us on social media and link your holiday/travel themed creations over at the Bastel Traum Challenge blog. Until next time… happy trails!

Today’s card is a shout-out to my friend Christina, the artist behind Bubblegum Paper.

Before I started “vlogging”, I got in touch with Christina and she was kind enough to share a bunch of very useful tips with me. So today’s post is my way of saying “Thanks Christina. I think you’re “wicked awesome” and I will be forever grateful for your help.
