Love and Sympathy- Two in One!

Hi Stampers!! 

I wanted to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card using the CQC125 ColourQ Challenge colors along with the FreshlyMade FMS23 sketch.  

I hope you have the time to check out the Design Team samples from each site along with all of the other entries- they are all fabulous!  

To create this card:

Color the floral image using Stampin’ Write markers (Lucky Limeade and Baja Breeze) and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.  Distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and layer onto Lucky Limeade (distressing the edges of this layer as well).

Use the Big Shot™ with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss two pieces of Basic Gray cardstock.

Punch out two pieces of Baja Breeze cardstock with the 1” Square Punch and one piece from Lucky Limeade cardstock.  Emboss all three with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. 

Punch three flowers using the Boho Blossoms Punch, run through the Crimper Tool and add the center of each square with a Copper Brad.

Add the Satin Ribbon bow, sentiment and punched border to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets:  Love and Sympathy

Ink: Basic Gray, Stampin’ Write Markers- Baja Breeze, Lucky Limeade

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, Lucky Limeade

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Square Lattice and Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Crimper Tool, Distressing Tool, Punches- XL Oval, 1” Square, Boho Blossom, Eyelet Border;  Copper Brads, 5/8” Satin Ribbon (from my stash)

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you have a wonderful week!
