613 Avenue Create #193 - Anything Goes-Option Totally Technical-Use Your Favorite Technique

Happy 2017, my crafty friends!  At 613 Avenue Create we're starting off the New Year by highlighting techniques. I've used the technique of oragami paper folding as the focal point of my card. My daughter-in-law recently got a new job in the fashion industry. To congratulate her, I decided to make a card. I didn't have any stamps that I thought were appropriate so I surfed the internet for ideas. I ran across a You Tube video (click here for video) on making an oragami dress and decided to give it a try. This technique is brand new to me, but I love how it turned out. The paper for the dress is a bit shiny so there's a slight glare in the photo. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder which I had never used before on the card base. The sentiment is from a Cricut cartridge (I don't remember which one). A few sequins round out the design.

We are now a just for fun challenge with occasional prizes. We hope you join us monthly as our designers are free to use any medium or image we desire. Doesn't that sound like fun?

Are you making any resolutions for this New Year? I don't do that any more, mostly because I never seem to follow through for very long. I've decided to resolve to be the best me I can be. Nothing specific, but I'm determined to live my life fully and to be engaged every day.

Peace and Blessing, friends!
