My son Alex asked I had any big crafting projects on the go...luckly I didn't and knew he wanted something so I was intrigued. He said he was making a valentine CD for his girlfriend and asked if I could make a CD holder for it. I couldn't say YES fast enough! As much as I like colouring, I sometimes like to just sit and play and create something different. I asked what her favorite color was, and not surprising it was purple! I'm not much of a purple fan myself so I had to make a trip to Pickle to get some papers...I had NO purple in my stash! The blank white CD holders were something that I picked up a while ago just waiting for this opportunity.
I also decided that I would use some Basic Grey rub ons and chipboard flowers that I have had hanging around FOREVER. Then the creative process began. All of the papers I used are from the Basic Grey Euphoria line. I started by covering the outside with a subtle purple pattern and chose some brighter wilder paper for the inside. Alex gave me the song listing, and chose a line from one of the songs for his sentiment that is mounted on a tag cut from one of my Quickutz revolution dies. He also gave me a few pics, which he captioned, and I printed those off on my little Epson Picture Mate printer...side note, I love that little printer!
Enough blabbering, on to the card!
Outside: The flower is chipboard covered in paper and sanded off with my Basic Grey sanding tools. Another thing that I just had to have and has been sitting unused for maybe a year. But I knew that one day I would need them. The center of the flower is a large WeR snap that I set with the crop a dial. The rub ons are Basic Grey Offbeat.
I did add a little hot fix rhinestone that I bought from Stamping Bella in the birds eye! Couldn't resist that bit of bling.
The inside is pretty simple, song listing on the left and sentiment on the right.
