CCMC308 Sending Love and Sympathy with Rolled Roses
I had a chance to play in my craft room last night and create several cards for a few online challenges :-) I love participating in the online challenges since they allow you to work with colors that you may not have thought of to put together yourself and/or sketches (layouts) that again, may not have been something that you would have designed on your own (makes me “think outside the box” :-)) .
This card was created for one of my favorite weekly challenges, Create with Connie and Mary using their CCMC308 ColorChallenge. I hope you will have a chance to visit and check out all of their wonderful Design projects on their blog hop and other entries- such great inspiration!
Use the Big Shot™ along with the new Lovely Lace Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Real Red cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and finally onto the Whisper White card base.
Ink the sentiment from Love & Sympathy (I just love the font on this sentiment- don’t you?) using the Bermuda Bay and Real Red Stampin’ Write markers and stamp onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock (there goes my scraps in use again :-)). Mount onto a piece of Real Red cardstock and again onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock (I just used strips of these colors from my stash and unless I told you my secret, which I just did, you would never know - lol!). Trim the sentiment panel and mount onto the card front.
Create the rolled flowers from Real Red and Crushed Curry cardstock (use the 2 3/8”, 1 ¾” and 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punches- punch the scallop circles, hand cut a wavy spiral from the outside of the scallop circle toward the center, use the retired Crimper Tool to distress a bit, roll up from the outside edge and adhere using Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive or a Hot Glue Gun). Here is a brief tutorial on Splitcoaststampers site using Designer Series Paper under Rolled Flower...
Create the leaves from Bermuda Bay cardstock with the Bird Builder Punch and adhere behind the rolled flowers and add to the card front to finish off the card (again, I used a Hot Glue Gun since I had it on my desk and ready to go :-)).
