On the Artsystamper Addiction Facebook page I saw a card made with a freebie Chinese "take out" carton where they had pieced the carton with some pattern paper. So my mission was to try and make my own version.
I finally figured out how to do it. First I chose some pattern paper from the Fall Flowers Stamp and Paper Crafting kit and printed that out. Then I sized up the carton on my program and added everything else I wanted on that sheet and my design was ready to print. The first printing was done on the pattern paper and the second printing was done on the card stock. Then I was able to piece the carton with the pattern paper. When all was fussy cut and glued I placed it aside until the rest of the card was made.
I used one of the pattern designs from the Artsystamper Jellies Paper Pack on which I had added the sentiment for my background and that was placed on a kraft card stock base. I was then able to finish it off by adding the "to go" box to which I had colored in the sweet and sour chicken bites with my colored pencils. At least that was what I decided to order. Hahaa!
It seems "take out" is the norm these days or at least in our household. So I thought this would work for a birthday card with some money included so that they can have a mini celebration with some good eating.
This will be entered in the Artsystamper Challenge #20- Birthday! It fits the category this time around since I made it a birthday card.
Well if the internet cooperates I will try to post this. And, so sorry I did not get to comment on many of your posts either. But lots of times I got the message written but by the time I wanted to add it to your post the internet was down again. Very frustrating. I used my iPhone to delete many of my emails that were not important. Mostly ads and that way I was not disappointed to see all the sales and not be able to buy. Hahaa! Tomorrow we get the new internet if nothing goes wrong. Keep your fingers crossed!
