SUO76 Z is for Zebra, Zinnia- Thank you!
The Stampin’ Up! Only Challenges theme for the SUO76 Challengeis Back To School. For some reason when I thought of this challenge, the first thing that came to my mind were the alphabet flash cards :-))
I truly hope that you will have a chance to stop by to visit SUO-Only Challenges to check out all of the other Design Team creations and play along with us :-))
To create this card:
Ink the new background stamp, Dictionary, with Whisper White Craft Ink and stamp onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Trim for the horizontal panel and adhere to Basic Black cardstock. Add the Basic Black cardstock strip to the center of the panel and adhere to the Dictionary background panel.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Chalk Talk Framelits™ to cut the large tag and narrow tag from Basic Black cardstock. De-static using the Embossing Buddy® and stamp the sentiment on the long narrow tag along with the zebra and “Z” image on the larger tag with Versamark™ ink. Apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool. Once cooled, apply a bit of Whisper White Craft Ink with a Sponge Dauber to finish off the chalkboard effect.
If desired, add the Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock strip along with the top edge of the tag (FYI- I added this to hide my original handwritten “Z” that I decided did not look right- so now you know another secret about me:-))).
De-static another piece of Basic Black cardstock using the Embossing Buddy® and stamp the zinnia flower along with the sentiment for the lower portion of the card with Versamark™ ink. Apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool. Once cooled, again apply a bit of Whisper White Craft Ink with a Sponge Dauber to finish off the chalkboard effect.
Adhere the large Chalk Talk tag and the narrow sentiment tag to a Whisper White layer and mount to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. “Fussy-cut” the three zinnias and adhere to the top of the tag. Punch out the lower sentiment using the XL Oval Punch and then cut the oval to square with the bottom of the card.
Create the paper bow using two large oval punches from Whisper White (rolled in half and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot), add a small strip of Whisper White cardstock on the bottom, adhere the two folded ovals and the two strips for tails. Add the Antique Brad to the center and adhere to the card.
