Sudsol Design Challenge #52

Yesterday was SO exciting! I hope you had a chance to see the Deal of the Week, the new Idea Book & Catalog, the Definitely Decorative Catalog, the new In-Colors and more! If you missed any of these, the links are to the left of this post and easy to find. Have fun.

Today's post is a card using one of the new In-Colors: Bermuda Bay. I followed a sketch that was provided by a Demonstrator Only group so I had a little inspiration. My daughter chews gum like a spaz! Her favorite is Five Gum and I think one of the reasons she likes it is because she and her friends play with the wrappers.

She showed me last night how you can separate the foil from the paper part of the wrapper and it is slightly adhesive. She and her friends have covered entire notebooks with it. (Notice how cute Emily is too since you're here visiting! She's sixteen and really fun. Gotta have a little Mommy-brag time.)

Anyway, inspired a little more, I ran the gum wrapper through my Big Shot using the Little Leaves Sizzlet Die. I used a nearly worn out cutting pad set and got the added bonus of the texture you can see on the leaves. All of the previous "cuts" on my cutting pad textured the foil wrapper. I think it's really cool. I just wish I could get whole sheets of this stuff!

Great card! Love the leaves. Who would of thought to use a gum wrapper. You should recruit your daughter as soon as she's old enough.
