HYCCT1413 There's Only One You :-)
Hi Again Stampers!
Here is another card that I created for the recent Hope You Can Cling To Challenge (HYCCT) Card Drive at Splitcoaststampers for Paperpunchscissors aka Susie Lessard’s HYCCT1413 “Heart Song” Challenge - (see the gallery here and the details here) along with the Splitcoaststampers SC337 Sketch.
The goal of the card drive is to provide cards for the cancer patients and their guests to send as encouragement, etc. for their personal use. I tried to find verses that I thought could be used for various occasions and also tried to limit the layers (so they would not have to include additional postage) :-)
The sentiment is from a former Sale-A-Bration set called Vintage Verses but the carousel and embossing folder are non- SU! Quite a few of my family members love horses and music , so I could not resist these items when they went on sale :-)
To create this card:
Ink the Carousel stamp image (Inkadinkadoo) using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and color using the Black Stampin’ Up! Watercolor pencil- press down with various pressures to obtain darker shadows, and if needed, use an AquaPainter™ sparingly in the background to soften the pencil lines.
Cut out the image with the Big Shot™ and the Ovals Collection Framelits™, also cutting the same size oval from a piece of Basic Black cardstock. Split the Basic Black oval in half horizontally and mount behind the focal image allowing just a bit of the Basic Black frame to show.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Music Embossing Folder (Darice) to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.
Mount the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals™.
Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock (I used a previously printed sentiment from My Digital Studio (MDS) that was in my stash), trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Add the two Antique Brads to the corners and mount the sentiment panel onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
