Happy Thursday! I am so excited to be back on the Tic Tac Toe Design Team! It is so much fun and easy to create using inspiration from the challenge board! Just pick 3 in a row and create! This is the board that we are playing along with this week:
I chose the top row White Cardstock/Flowers/Pearls and created an all occasion watercolored card using the Ginkgo Branch Bundle.
Here’s the details:
- Polished Pink Cardstock – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 for card base, 4 x 5 1/4 layer, 1/4 x 6 strip for envelope
- Basic White Cardstock- 3 3/4 x 5 embossed with Subtle embossing folder, scrap to stamp sentiment and cut with Ginkgo Branch Die
- Shimmery White Cardstock – die cut Ginkgo Branch flower die and color using water painters and the following ink refills: Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody, Polished Pink, Melon Mambo, and Pear Pizzazz
- 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Designer Series Paper Assortment (Polished Pink Polka Dot pattern)- 1 1/2 x 3 3/4 , 2 x 6 for envelope
- Simply Elegant Trim – wrap around pink layer and tie a bow
You can purchase the products used to make today’s project from my online store. The Ginkgo Branch Bundle from the New Mini Catalog can be used for many different occasion cards. Here’s a look at the bundle.
Yesterday I shared another card made with the Ginkgo Branch Bundle. If you missed that post, you can view it HERE.
See how simple it is to create using elements from the challenge board?! I would really love for you to play along this week. Just pick 3 and create! You can go across, down, or diagonal. Make sure you visit the Tic Tac Toe Challenge to see what the other designers created this week! You’ll find the Link Tool at the bottom of the post and you can use it to share your own creation with us. Have fun!
Here’s the Tic Tac Toe Challenge Rules:
- Create a new project. You can create any project and use any elements/supplies as long as it fits within the three elements (in a row, column or diagonal) of your choosing from the tic tac toe challenge board that is set for the current challenge.
- You may enter up to a maximum of 3 times as long as the creations are new.
- If you have a blog, you should include the challenge graphic in your post and link back to our challenge.
