Friends Never Fade- Final Card from Inspiration Photo :-)
This is the sixth and final card that I created yesterday based on the terrific SR199 Stampin’ Royalty Inspiration Photo and a modified version of the Splitcoaststampers SC449 Sketch Challenge.
Hopefully, if you have not done so yet, you find the time to you will visit their sites and check out all of the fabulous designs!!
If you have not been following this card series and are wondering why I created six cards from one inspiration challenge, I have more details in my first post here :-)
To create this card:
Using My Digital Studio (MDS) print out the Friends Never Fade image onto Very Vanilla cardstock using the black printer ink (re-size the image a bit).
To distress the image a bit, color in the flower/sentiment area using Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write markers and when dry add a few highlights with the Chalk Marker.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Chalk Talk Framelit™ to cut out a tag from Very Vanilla cardstock and cover using scraps of the retired Newsprint DSP. Distress by hand and with the Distressing Tool and use a Sponge Daubler to sponge on Crumb Cake Classic Ink.
Mount onto scrap pieces of Basic Black cardstock (previously embossed with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder).
Add the Very Vanilla rolled flowers and the black satin ribbon bow. FYI- the rolled flowers were created with 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punch, cut a wavy spiral toward the center, roll up and adhere with MultiPurpose glue, sponge with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and add the Pearl in the center.
Distess a piece of retired Newsprint DSP with the Distressing Tool and use a Sponge Daubler to sponge on Crumb Cake Classic Ink. Add to the Basic Black card base.
Add the distressed Newsprint center with the crochet trim (from my stash) to the panel. To distress this layer, crumble the DSP by hand and lightly sand with the Sanding Block. Sponge with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso Classic Ink, add the Basic Black cardstock strip at the top and bottom before adhering the crochet trim).
Add the Pearls to finish off the card.
