Clean and Layered- Celebrate Banner Card :-)
Here is the initial card that I created using the CTS61 CAS(E) This Sketch! Challenge along with the FabFri34 Color Challenge.
I failed to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card on this first try- I kept adding layers and it became a Clean and Layered card versus Clean and Simple :-) ….so this card does not truly qualify as CAS. I did create a second card (see this post) but wanted to share this card as well :-)
Again, I hope you have a chance to check out both challenge sites- inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Cut several 2” Squares from various sheets in the Fresh Prints DSP stack and layer onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock to create the mini quilt.
Emboss the “quilt” piece using the Big Shot™ with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Trim to a diagonal for the sketch challenge and layer onto two scrap strips of Real Red cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Add the diagonal strip (leaving an area under the lower edge unattached for the next step) and trim the edges to approx. 3 ¾” x 5”.
Use the new Banner Punch to punch out little banners from various prints in the Fresh Prints DSP Stack- adhere below the diagonal quilted piece using Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive.
Stamp the sentiment from Express Yourself using Real Red Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and create the banner using the Hexagon Punch.
Add the sentiment layer to a scrap piece of Real Red cardstock, trim and punch the banner points with the Hexagon Punch as well.
Adhere to the diagonal layer and add the Real Red Candy Dots between the sentiments.
The way the quilted squares were arranged, there waas a bit too much Crumb Cake in the middle so I added the additional banners at the top to break up the color.
Create the additional banners using the Banner Punch and the 2 ½” Circle Punch (first punch the circle from Real Red cardstock, then re-punch to create the trim).
Adhere the three banners, add to the diagonal quilted piece and add the Crumb Cake Candy Dots to finish off the background layer.
Layer the entire panel onto the Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
