Our Prettie Challenge this week from Frances was to create a scrapling. Have you seen them? They really are so much fun! Traditionally, scraplings are the little bit of cardstock that is left over when you cut an A2 sized card (5.5"x4.25") down to a square (4.25"x4.25") card. That means you are left with a 4.25"x1.25" bitty card. They may really cute little gift tags and it's fun to see what you can squeeze into a tiny space. Frances said we could make them a bit bigger (but no wider than 2.5") if we like, but being the "rules" girl that I am, I stuck with the original size! :)
For my stamps, I used the cute little moving truck from Home Sweet Homes set by Fat Cat Stamps for Paper Pretties. Wouldn't these be fun little cards to make and give to your friends to announce your move?
I started with a piece of Vanilla cardstock and covered it with some fun dp from October Afternoon! The truck was colored and cut out. I put some pewter brads in the wheels for hubcaps and then popped it up with foam adhesive. The sentiment was punched out and edged with a Copic marker to give it some definition and then popped up too. The ribbon is from SU! but I also colored it with a Copic to tone down the red a bit.
Please take a minute to visit the other Prettie Girls and see what scrappy creations they've come up with! Have a Prettie Wednesday!!
