Happy Anniversary- Another Three in One!


Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to create a card for this week’s JAI87 Color Challenge and since I have not used Calypso Coral that often, I wanted to highlight this bright color. 

I decided to use the FMS4 Freshly Made Sketch along with the FM26 Friday Mashup Fan Favorite Theme Challenge of Fall or Brads (or both to “Mash It Up”) so I chose to “Mash It Up” :-)

Originally I had the tag folded to allow the sketch to be in the landscape format as designed, but decided to open up the tag. so I modified the sketch a bit (thus, there is a slight score line visible on the tag).  I could cover the score line with ribbon or cardstock, but chose to leave it "as is" for now :-)


To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ and emboss a piece of Calypso Coral with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and a piece of Crumb Cake with the Square Lattice  Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder  (I applied Pool Party ink to the smooth side of the Vintage Wallpaper EF with a Brayer prior to embossing the Calypso Coral cardstock).

With the Big Shot™ and the Two Tags Bigz™ Die, cut a piece of Whisper White.  Using the larger of the two tags, stamp the images in Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral and Pool Party.

Layer the panels, crimped Pool Party band, tag and sentiment.   Finish off with the cut-out leaves, antique brad and Crumb Cake Taffeta bow.

Stamp Sets:  French Foliage, Artistic Etchings, Teeny Tiny Wishes

 Ink: Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Pool Party

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Pool Party

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Vintage Wallpaper and Square LatticeTextured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, Two Tags Bigz™ Die, Crimper, Punches- Decorative Label, Word Window, Modern Label and 1 3/8” Circle, Antique Brad, 3/8” Crumb CakeTaffeta Ribbon

Thanks again for visiting and I hope all of you have a great day! *
