Challenge #36 "Round and Round" is now up on the Double Trouble Blog. The challenge runs from Monday, August 19, through Sunday, September 1, 2019. We are partnering with the ladies at Joy of Sets #008, which uses a Tic Tac Toe grid and is open through Wednesday, August 28, 2019.
For Double Trouble #36, the requirements are:
Thing 1: Include something round in your design.
Thing 2: (optional) Link your card to the Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe Challenge #008 - but check their guidelines first.
Thing 3: (optional) Include anything related to school.
For The Joy of Sets #008, I used the third column: Circle, Embossing, School. (I used the debossed side of my embossed panel.)
Here are the details. The image was stamped and colored then fussy cut. I believe there is a coordinating die set to go with the stamps but I don't have them. The stack of books were die cut and colored. A panel of cardstock was adhered to the card base. A smaller white panel was texturized to look like brick using an embossing folder then trimmed with a scalloped edge taken from scrap ephemera. This was also adhered. Next, I added the focal image directly to the card while the book stack was placed using foam tape for dimension. The sentiment was stamped onto die cut circles. The inside was lined with white cardstock and a bit more ephemera.
The Design Teams are eager to see your creations at both challenges so be sure to visit our blogs and find out how to play along. You could win a prize from Double Trouble! DTC#36 Blog JOSTTT008 Blog
