Sensible Woman- Two Challenges in One!
I had two additional tags from the homemade “background” panel that I created for the previous post for the PPA227 Color Challenge, so instead of tucking them away for another day, I decided to create another card :-)
This card qualifies for the Catherine and Cathy Create CCC50 Delighted with DSP and the Splitcoaststampers SC514 Sketch Challenge.
I hope you will find time to visit both challenge sites- inspiration from all! Here is the link for the Splitcoaststampers Master Sketch Challenge- so many sketches, so little time- lol!
To create this card:
As mentioned in the previous post (here), stamp the various images from the retired Established Elegance set using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and Old Olive Classic Ink (for the scroll) onto Whisper White cardstock, masking a few images and coloring the images using Stampin’ Write markers- Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie.
Add a bit of distressing with the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink.
Use the Note Punch to punch out the images and sponge additional Baked Brown Sugar onto the tags to “antique” the Whisper White cardstock. Also punch two tags from Old Olive cardstock, cut the tags apart and mount behind the stamped tag images.
Add the Burnt Sienna Organdy Ribbon along the bottom (this ribbon is from my stash and is wired, so I adhered to the tag with Sticky Strip)- also add a piece at the top of the tag and tie with Linen Thread.
Mount a piece of Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper (DSP) to a piece of Old Olive cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Crushed Curry cardstock and "antique” the Crushed Curry DSP using a Baked Brown Sugar Sponge Dauber.
Add the two strips of Burnt Sienna Organdy Ribbon to the center, slip the embossed strip of Very Vanilla cardstock (this was in my stash- previously cut and embossed) and add a strip of Old Olive cardstock to hide the seam of the two strips of ribbon.
Mount the entire panel onto the Pumpkin Pie card base.
Using My Digital Studio (MDS), insert the sentiment image onto a blank 8.5 x 11 document, reduce in size and print onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Trim the image and create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch.
Create the rolled flowers with the 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punch- punch two scallops from Pumpkin Pie cardstock, carefully cut a wavy spiral from the outside edge toward the center, roll up and adhere in the center (I use Hot Glue to adhere).
Using the Bird Builder Punch, punch the leaves out of Old Olive cardstock, adhere the leaves behind the flowers and add a rose to the top of each tag.
Add the tags and the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. Add a few Pearls to finish off the card.
