Fall Themed Birthday- Three in One!
I decided to create another card this evening (well, now morning) and decided to use the colors from the CC339 Always So Crazed Splitcoast Challenge and incorporate the SFF091611 Sketch Friday Frenzy Sketch and the HSSFTC584 Fall Theme (since the colors remind me of fall).
I have a few friends that have birthdays in the fall and thought these colors would be perfect for a fall themed card (I know, a bit non-traditional since it does not focus on leaves, but I hope you think it qualifies as well :-)).
If you have a chance to check out the site links above, you will find so much inspiration- it never ceases to amaze me on how many different interpretations can be created from one sketch or one color challenge!
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ with the Ovals Die and cut large ovals from Very Vanilla, So Saffron and Always Artichoke cardstock. Stamp the bee image from Nature’s Pace with Cajun Craze ink and color with Stampin’s Write Markers in Always Artichoke, So Saffron and Cajun Craze.
Use the Color Spritzer Tool with the Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze marker and spritz the image, Sponge both colors around the edge of the oval as well.
Layer onto the So Saffron and Always Artichoke oval die cuts ( I cut the ovals in half so you could create a layer). Adhere a piece of Cajun Craze punched with the Decorative Label Punch and embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (actually from my scraps and also cut in half) to both ends (bonus- this will hide the split on the oval layers:-)).
Emboss a piece of So Saffon with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (I used a brayer to ink the folder first with So Saffron ink on the smooth interior side of the folder). Attach the focal image with Stampin’ Dimensions, layer the satin ribbon bow and adhere the panel to the Always Artichoke card base.
Stamp the sentiment with Cajun Craze, "huff" onto the bee image to re-moisten the Cajun Craze ink and stamp the leaf areas over the sentiment. Punch the sentiment out with the Large Oval Punch, spritz and sponge as noted above and layer onto a Modern Label Punch and Decorative Label Punch to create the embellishment.
Add pearls to finish off the card.
