DICC #14 Plus, a Card for Ryan

It’s time for another installment of the Desert Islands Crafters Challenge! This time around, our Itinerary was created by Suzie McFloozy. If you haven’t played along before, all you need to do is make a project using at least 3 things from the given itinerary. You then have the chance at winning an opportunity to create your own itinerary for us!

In addition to DICC, I wanted to make mention of a very special request, given by my friend Meredith. A dear friend (named Ryan)of her brother was involved in a serious accident, and she is asking we card makers to send Ryan cards to brighten his day. I had intentions of sending the card I am sharing with you today…but I think it may be a bit too girly. So instead, I will be sending a different Bombshell Stamps card…the one I made for the August Sketch. You can see it HERE. Please read all of the details about Ryan and Meredith’s very thoughtful request HERE.

Back to the itinerary! Here it is…

Suzie McFloozy's Itinerary

1 - Dry embossing

2 - Paper piecing (not to be confused with piercing!)

3 - Pearls

4 - Office stationary (paper clips etc)

5 - Kraft card

6 - Ruffles

7 - Stickers

8 - Stitching

9 - Vintage/Old fashioned (could be an image or just style)

10 – Fabric

I used #1, 3, 5, and 9 for my card.

I have a nasty cold, and luckily, I had this version of Bombshell Stamps’ Butterfly Queen already colored up. You can see the dry embossed dots on the purple cardstock. I rubbed some silver paint on top to add to the dimension.

I colored the Butterfly Queen with markers and colored pencils. I used a punch that I have wanted for like, ever and finally got last week. Those sweet stars! I love stars. But that’s a whole ‘nuther story!

But she’s a bit to girly for Ryan, no? I think the other card will be better. Please be sure to check out the rest of what the DICC gals have cooked up for you. Their bloggy’s are listed on my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Please drop by Meredith’s blog to consider making a little something for Ryan. Have an inspiring day!

Love the dry embossing & the added bling. What a wonderful card - and not too girly for a guy - she is a pin-up after all.
Gorgeous card Alison, but I agree with you, the card in the link would be better for Ryan :)
