Another CQC99 Card-" Lucky Me" for Knowing You
Here is the second card that I created this evening using the bright primary colors from this week’s CQC99 ColourQ Challenge- if you have not done so yet and have the time, check out their site- they are fabulous!
The top half of the background uses a piece of Crushed Curry that had been previously embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and the Big Shot™ (the inside of the folder had been inked using a brayer with Island Indigo Classic Ink on the smooth side). On the lower half of the card, I also used a piece of previously embossed Island Indigo cardstock (with the Houndstooth Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder).
Using Island Indigo Classic Ink, stamp the floral images from Summer Solstice onto Whisper White cardstock, the leaves onto Old Olive cardstock and the butterfly onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock. Carefully cut out around the edges of the images and color the centers of the flowers using the Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write marker (retired).
Assemble the card using a scrap punched with the Lace Ribbon Border Punch from Whisper White, 5/8” Pumpkin Pie Satin Ribbon and finish off with the pearl.
