DD82 Patterned Pines- Thinking of You
While I had the colors out for this week’s DD82 Dynamic Duos “Brightand Cheery” Challenge, I ended up creating a total of three cards (this is card #2- the first card is here).
This card uses a retired SU! Hostess set, Patterned Pines that had never seen ink yet... I love the three pines and the patterns so decided that this color combination may be the perfect opportunity to show this set some love :-)
Again, I hope you will find the time to visit the Dynamic Duos site this week and we would love to see your creations!
To create this card:
Ink the three tree stamp image using Gumball Green Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Window Frames Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image along with another piece the same size using Primrose Petals cardstock. Trim the Primrose Petals layer in half horizontally and layer behind the focal image.
Emboss a piece of Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper (DSP) using the Big Shot™ with the Petals-A-Plenty Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (make sure you have the correct side up inside the folder- I had the wrong side up so my embossing is actually debossing-oops!). Lightly sand with the Sanding Blocks and layer onto the Primrose Petals card base.
Create the sentiment using My Digital Studio (MDS) from Endless Wishes- print onto Whisper White cardstock, punch the banners using the Hexagon Punch and add the Primrose Petals cardstock layer.
Stamp the sentiment from Beautiful Season onto Whisper White cardstock (I used the My Digital Studio version printed onto Whisper White cardstock). Create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch and layer onto a piece of Primrose Petals cardstock (also punching the banner points with the Hexagon Punch).
Add the tree focal panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® . Gently curve the sentiment layer using your bone folder and add with Stampin’ Dimensionals® as well.
Add the triple 3/8” Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon bow and Pearls finish the card.
