Today is my first post as part of the Whiff Of Joy Challenge Blog design team!!!!
(Still can't believe it!!) And the challenge this week is to create a Door Hanger.
I was really nervous about this challenge because I'm not a big fan of door hangers, I think I don't like the long shape. But then I realized that it didn't have to be long....it could be square. Things went easier for me from there. LOL I knew right away that I wanted to use my Willow with Toddler stamp and make a door hanger for a baby's nursery. I am over the moon happy with how this came out.
I tried faux stitching again. This time using a softer surface when piercing the paper and I didn't get a cramp in my hand this time. I also got to play with my new Bow Easy. If you don't have one...it's so awesome, easy and fun to use!!! (You can win one if your one of my followers. Click here to see my Blog Thank You Candy details that ends August 31st.) I made a sweet little double bow with very long tails to use as my hanger. The hanger base is heavy weight chipboard covered in cardstock. The scalloped square was made using my Cricut. I had meant to distress the paper edges, but remembered only after I had adhered it all down. :( I used tiny little half pearls as the button on her gown.
