August CCC reveal and OCC class

Hello everyone! It's the second of the month, which means it's time for another reveal at the Card Chain Challenge. This month, my card did not have to travel far, from Crete to mainland Greece, but I was late in sending it out, so Mia of Craftartista has not received it yet.

I decided to combine the colours and theme from the CCC inspiration with an idea from the current Crushing on Cardstock class (from Cathy Zielske) at Online Card Classes.

I cut some strips of coloured cardstock (snippets) and silver cardstock using my trimmer and doubled them up for more dimension, especially since the cardstock I used was not very thick. For the sentiment, I used a CUTplorations die cut from the same silver cardstock as well as a shadow layer from a snippet of white cardstock. I die cut the heart from a snippet of vellum. I finished things off with a few small gems that I found while decluttering my craft room.

I'm linking up my card at:

After getting reacquainted with crafting in my craft room, 
I'm also venturing out to have a play at 
It's been so long since I've played there, 
I'm hoping I don't get lost along the way.

  9. Hi Marianne,

    I just landed here having signed up to the Card Chain and realised immediately you had several post recently and I've not seen a single on on my reading list. Just double checked and I am still a follower so absolutely no idea why that could be.

    I think I will unsubscribe and then join your blag again as this is not the first time this has happened and with all the will in the World, if a blog doesn't pop up on your reading list it's easy to not realise someone is missing.
