The Cityscapes are on the Rise Challenge

So, I picked up a copy of Paper Crafts magazine a few weeks ago - and have been practically carrying it around the house with me. The Moxie Fabs article was about Cityscapes - and lo and behold, an idea for that paper from Basic Grey's "Wander" that I'd been hoarding was hatched. Kim Kesti's card on p. 24 uses the paper, and I cribbed my sentiment from Courtney Kelly's awesome card on p. 26 (also featured here, the first card shown). And now Cath's challenge -


  • Create a paper crafted project (card, gift bag, tag, layout, home decor item, mini-book cover, etc.) that incorporates a cityscape in an innovative way.

  • Not sure that this qualifies as innovative, but I love how it turned out - simple, even suitable for a masculine card (yay!), so I'm sharing it for the challenge. I may even dare to try again before the challenge closes March 28.



  • Supplies: papers all from Basic Grey "Wander;"
    stickers from Basic Grey "Kioshi" (yellow) and "Oliver" (green);
    teal layer popped up on one layer of foam tape, and the yellow layer is popped up on two.
    xoxo,

    This is amazing! That Wander paper is so easy to make fantastic cards with. (I had a card picked up for the Go-to Sketches issue using that collection.) Best of luck with the challenge!

    I had the same basic grey wander papers too. Just love the masculine colours and slightly gritty feel they gave to your card
