Out of this World! with OSAAT

It's time for a "Use a Digi" challenge at One Stitch at a Time (OSAAT)! I love stamping, but digi stamps are so much fun too, and StitchyBear's Digi Outlet has hundreds from many wonderful artists.


Because I LOVE IT, I chose the Starship Digi & Paper Pack by Coosty Creations:

I was inspired by the Gatefold challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. Here it is folded closed:


The chevron is made from Rolo wrappers. They are about 2.5 inches wide, so I cut them down to 1-inch strips and folded theme using the Patchwork Chevrons technique from SEI.

I put a message section on the back:


Inspiration/Challenges:
Cards For Men: Metal / Metallic
Crafty Bloggers Network: Favourite Things (Star Trek, chevron ribbon, Chocolate/Rolos, recycling, corner notch punch)/ 2nd entry
Great Impressions: Square Card
Incy Wincy Designs: Gatefold Card

I have totally fallen in love with this card CG, the Rolo papers have really come into their own in creating a real trekie feel to this card (and the contents would have been yummy too ). Thank you so much for creating this beautiful creation. Dare I boldy say - well done Hugs Jane xx
