Hey everyone! The second round of Paper Crafts Gallery Idol is now live - you can cast your vote (hopefully for me!) right here. Our theme for this round was masculine cards incorporating items found in the garage (either actual items or images of such items). I went the literal route with this one and included nuts (of the nuts and bolts variety) on my card. To hold the nuts to my card I stitched them to punched cork circles using green baker's twine. I thought the cork added even more texture and dimension and was also another material you might find in the garage.
I carried the texture and dimension into my sentiment by using these really fun cork letters by Making Memories. I wanted to use a really bold color scheme to further the masculine feel of my card as well.
So now I need your support again! Please visit the contest page here and cast your vote for my "simply nuts about you" card. If you voted in the last round you do not need to register again but simply sign in to the contest tool. If you did not vote in the first round ... shame on you! LOL! Just kidding! You will need to register with the contest tool by visiting this link and following these easy steps:
1. You’ll need to register with the contest tool to vote, so first go to the “Registration” tab.
2. Once you’ve registered, then click on the “View Entries” tab.
3. Once you select your favorite card, click on the “Vote” tab. (Make sure you’re really sure because you’re only allowed one vote per voting round!)
As some of you may know, my hard drive crashed this past weekend and I lost everything including all of my email contacts. I am limited in my ability to let people know about this second round of voting so I need your help in spreading the word. Voting for Round 2 will end at noon (MDT) on Thursday, June 17. The results will be tallied shortly after and the Top 10 will be announced on Friday! Thanks so much for your support! :)
