Congrats Paper Players Challenge PP500

July 19, 2020

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The amazing Jaydee is our hostess this week and we are excited to announce that this is our 500th Challenge!!!  WOW!  Sooooo happy you play along with us each week.  We love sharing with all of you! 




What do we mean by Clean and Simple?

Minimal layers and embellishments
Plenty of open space, aka "white" space
Simple and uncluttered

Challenge Rules:

This card is for a special friend that has two little boys and is having  a little girl any day now.  I think that is something to celebrate!

My card is created using the Honey Bee Stamps Celebration Box stamp and die set.  I used the Buffalo Brights Paper Pack to create the box, balloons and tissue paper.  The Congrats was cut 3 times using a word die.  

Y'all know CAS is difficult for me, so I hope there is enough white space!  I did not add any embellishments, Jaydee.  LOL!  Jaydee is the Queen of CAS!!!!!  

  1. Create a new paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
  2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
  3. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
