Clean and Layered- Sending Peaceful Thoughts

Hi Again Stampers! 

As I created this weekend, I wanted to participate in The CardConcept #21 Sunflower Challenge (I would describe this card style as Clean and Layered :-)) and used a slight modification of the Freshly Made Sketches  FMS159 Challenge (love this sketch!).

Again, if you have not stopped by either site yet, I hope you will have time to check out the challenge sites- great Design Team samples and so much inspiration!!

To create this Clean and Layered (CAL) card:

Open a blank document in My Digital Studio (MDS), position the Sunflower image (re-sizing) and insert the script (3 separate images) from Strength and Hope behind the sunflower.   Adjust the opacity to 70% for the script and move it to the “back” of the sunflower image.

Insert the sentiment from Peaceful Thoughts in another area on the page (so you can punch it out separately from the sunflower image) and print the arranged images onto Whisper White cardstock.

Color the sunflower using the Light and Medium Daffofil Delight and Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blendabilities™ markers.   Add a few shadows with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker, trim the panel and mount onto Basic Black cardstock. 

Punch the sentiment out with the XL Oval Punch and layer onto two ovals also punched out of Basic Black cardstock using the XL Oval Punch.

Create a 5 ½” square card base from Whisper White cardstock and mount a 5 ½” square panel of Basic Black cardstock onto the card front.

Create a 5 ¼” x 5 ¼” square background panel using a piece of Back to Black Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Whisper White cardstock with a strip of Basic Black cardstock along the exposed edge of the DSP.

Mount the sunflower panel onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Add the layered sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals® and adhere a few Pearls to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Sunflower, Strength and Hope,  Peaceful Thoughts(all from MDS)

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Stampin’ Blendabilities™- Light and Medium Daffodil Delight, Light Crumb Cake

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Back to Black DSP

Accessories: XL Oval Punch, Pearls  

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you have a fantastic weekend!!
