Tami had some fun challenges to celebrate the Oscars on Fiskateers.
The 1st challenge was to create a project inspired by one of the films nominated for an Oscar, with the catch being that you had to have seen the film. After searching and searching through all the nominations I finally found one that I had seen. Rango was nominated for and won Best Animated Feature Film. For those of you that haven't seen it, Rango is the main character, a cute little chameleon. Here is the card I created thanks to the colours and textures inspired by Rango. The Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment border punch reminded me of the shape around his eyes, as did the XL Seal of Approval squeeze punch. Put an XL Round 'n Round squeeze punch circle behind it so that the scallops had a bit more contrast.
Next came the envelope challenge, so I created an envelope for my Rango card. The card was too big to make an envelope for using 12x12 paper, so I was lucky to have a 6.5" square envelope in my stash and the card just fitted in. After a bit of folding from the back, I was able to emboss the birthday boy's name on the front of the envelope using my Fiskars Mini ShapeBoss.
There are so many different stencils for embossing with your Fiskars ScrapBoss and Mini ShapeBoss and Texture Plates to suit any occasion.
