Fusion Challenge: Leftover Packaging




Hi Folks! Welcome to another fun Fusion Challenge! Love the buttery color in the inspiration photo, so this card has a ton of it. Plus a smiling marshmallow. Seriously, how can you not be happy with a smiling marshmallow?! It's from Cosmo Cricket S'more Love. The marshmallow is popped out from the card with those tiny arms and fingers cut out (in hindsight I should have just stamped the arms on the bottom layer). I embossed the Amuse Haunted Mansion background stamp (from the Stamping Royalty prize package) in white, and then used green for the "hello" banner (a modified Fiskars stamp also from SR) and blue for the inside of the card. All three colors in the photo. 
   


The sketch shows a strip across the bottom of the card, so I played up that element and made it see-through with some leftover packaging. In order for the foam tape not to show from the back side, I cut out another marshmallow body to put on the bottom.


Here are some fabulous cards by our design team!


WinnersWill be chosen by all of our teammates in two weeks. We each will choose one favorite. The winners will be announced at 4 am (PST) in two weeks!


Thanks for looking!

  12. At first I thought, "okay a marshmallow on a card" and then I took a better look and saw the acetate panel and the sentiment on the inside. Of course you'd do something out of the ordinary. What was I thinking!?

  16. Kelly, this is darling! The construction is pretty darn fabulous too. I love the way you upcycled the packaging to create that fun background. And thanks for including a side view. I love how you hid the foam dots. Brilliant!
