Friday Spyday #12 - Beate

Beate's card
This week's Spyday comes from a very talented lady at SCS - Beate!  She has many tutorials and gorgeous projects that wow me every time. 

I decided to draw from the colors and the scallops.  I wanted to use more than one kind of border punch and had a lot of fun picking which ones.  I also drew from the triangle piece by making a multi-pocket card.  I started with a base of 5x12, scoring at 4 and 8.  I then cut a diagonal piece off from the 4" score to the 12" end.  I added an extra pocket behind the shortest piece.  At the top, I punched a Martha Stewart punch on Whisper White; folding it as I stitched to give it a gathered look.  I used the pinking hearts punch in black along the slant.  I used a scrap piece of pink heart printed paper to make a background for the middle pocket.  The black pocket has a white border using the lacy scallop border punch from SU.  The littlest slant flap is embossed using the snowflake Cuttlebug folder. 
I made the wrap with a pink band 1.5" wide x 10".  The image is WS Joyce digi, colored with copics and a Santa hat cut from Cricut's Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge in bubble gum pink.  The floor is made by coloring with several E group markers, then drawing lines and woodgrain with a multiliner.  She is mounted on a lacy circle nestabilities, accented with bling.  The sentiment is printed on cardstock, punched with a 1 1/4" circle, mounted on a 1 3/8" circle, and popped up on a dimensional.  Inside hides three gift cards.  
Now it's your turn!  Head over to the Farm Fresh Challenge blog to check out the rest of the Design Team samples and play along.  Thanks for looking!  April
