It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday where every challenge is an inspiration list based on a selected holiday/festivity from the traditional to the unusual. Challenge projects must include at least three items from the festivity inspiration list.
Since the Inspiration List is a mix of elements related to the festivity, the creator has the choice to make something for that festivity, or to ignore the festivity all together and create something just using three (or more) elements on the list.
Today's festivities are in celebration of International Literacy Day, which takes place September 8th. The challenge runs from August 20th to August 31st.
I like to create a card for our challenge that goes with the celebration theme. Literacy is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. The 8th of September was proclaimed International Literacy Day by UNESCO in 1966 to remind the international community of the importance of literacy for individuals, communities and societies, and the need for intensified efforts towards more literate societies.
To create my card, I die cut a piece of 80# white card stock with the Hero ArtsBook Window Fancy Die, and colored the books with Copics. I masked the books and stenciled the background with a stencil from Art-c. I wrapped a piece of grosgrain ribbon around the panel on the left side to go along with the ribbon book marks in the die cut. I popped that panel up and mounted it on a kraft card base on which I had stamped my sentiment in black and clear heat embossed. I used book, stencil and ribbon from the inspo list.
Come play with us! Remember that your project does not have to go with the challenge theme. You can just use 3 or more items from the inspo list for your creation!
