DD87 True Friends
This week’s DD87 “Black Tie” Dynamic Duo Challenge combines BasicBlack with Melon Mambo and I incorporated the Splitcoaststampers SC471 Sketch Challenge along with this week's colors. These colors remind me of several friends who just love pink and so I created this card with them in mind :-) I also incorporated the Splitcoaststampers SC471 Sketch Challenge along with this week's colors
Again, I hope that you will find the time to stop by and check out the rest of the Dynamic Duos Design Team projects and create a project of your own using this week’s colors - we would love to have you join us!!
Using My Digital Studio (MDS), open a new blank 8.5x11 document and insert the stamp brush set from Friendly Words. Re-size a bit and print out onto Whisper White cardstock. Use the Big Shot™ with the Oval Collection Framelits™ to cut out the sentiment and cut out another oval using Basic Black cardstock. Split the Basic Black oval in half to adhere behind the sentiment layer.
Using Melon Mambo Classic Ink, stamp the flower from Flower Shop onto Whisper White cardstock. Cut out by hand and using the Sanding Block, lightly sand the edges. Use the Pansy Punch to punch out a piece of Basic Black cardstock and mount the stamped flower onto the Basic Black punched flower using Mini Glue Dots.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Pretty Prints Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the top half of a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim to approx. 3 3 ¾” x 5” and set aside.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock (emboss twice) and cut apart leaving a portion of the Whisper White to adhere to the next layer.
Adhere the Needlepoint embossed border to a piece of Basic Black cardstock (I use just a scrap strip at the top). Adhere a piece of Melon Mambo Designer Series Paper (DSP) to two strips of Basic Black cardstock at the top and bottom (or an entire panel of Basic Black cardstock- I have so many scraps that I try to use them first). Add the second Needlepoint embossed layer to complete the background panel.
Adhere the Melon Mambo DSP/embossed panel to the Pretty Print embossed panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim to approx. 1/8” around the edges and mount onto a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock and again onto the Whisper White card base.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Square Framelits™ to cut out a piece of Whisper White cardstock and a larger square of Basic Black cardstock. Add a few Basic Black leaves (created with the Bird Builder Punch) using Mini Glue Dots to the Whisper White square. Add the stamped flower punched piece and adhere to the square as well with Mini Glue Dots.
Add the sentiment oval layer onto the card and the floral square using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Create the little polka dot banner using the new Banner Punch (I used a retired SU! background paper) and adhere the little heart along with the Pearl. Add to the upper corner of the card.
Adhere the entire panel to the Whisper White card base and add the Pearls to finish off the card.
