Retro Fresh Celebrate! Two Challenges in One!
I wanted to share the card that I created today using CCMC288 Create withConnie and Mary Color Challenge along with the FMS121 Sketch from Freshly MadeSketches. I loved the colors in the challenge this week and they coordinated perfectly with the new Designer Series Paper (DSP), Retro Fresh.
I do hope you have had a chance to visit both sites- so much inspiration!!
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ along with Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss both sides of a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock (I have two of this embossing folder so I could put one on each side and emboss with a single pass).
Trim this panel and adhere to a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock and mount onto the Baked Brown Sugar card base.
Cut the square piece of Retro Fresh DSP with the Big Shot™ and the Square Framelits™. Before cutting the square, I placed the scrap piece of previously embossed Coastal Cabana cardstock over the DSP so that it would be on a diagonal and cut along with the square.
Adhere the diagonal strip and DSP to a piece of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and trim closely to the edge.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Heart Framelits™ to cut out hearts from Baked Brown Sugar cardstock as well as coordinating Retro Fresh DSP. Layer the pieces and add the Pearl strand around the DSP heart on the square panel.
Create the small rolled flowers using the 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punch- cut the scallops from Tangerine Tango and Coastal Cabana cardstock, crimp with the retired Crimper Tool, cut a spiral towards the center of each one my hand, roll up and adhere (here is a basic written tutorial from Splitcoaststampers).
Cut a few leaves using the Bird Builder Punch from Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and adhere to the DSP square, heart and card front. Add the rolled roses and adhere the heart, flowers and square per the sketch.
Stamp the sentiment using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and create the banner using the Hexagon Punch.
Add to the front of the heart using Stampin’ Dimensionals® along with a few Pearls to finish off the card.
