Thanks for Your Kindness- Three Challenges in One!
I had a chance to spend some time in my craft room this weekend and decided to create a card using the AW29 Color Challenge along with the Mojo371 Sketch and SR254 “Being Thankful” Theme.
If you have not had time to do so, I hope you will have a chance to visit all of the challenge sites and check out the gorgeous Design Team projects as well as the other entrants- again, wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the Apothecary Art image using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Color the image using the AquaPainter™ along with Crumb Cake, Real Red and Hello Honey Classic Ink. Use the Stampin’ Write Real Red and Hello Honey markers to darken the petals and the Crumb Cake marker to add shadows. Add a few highlights to the flower centers with the White Gel Pen.
Cut out the image using the Big Shot™ with the Labels Collection Framelits™ also cutting the same size frame from Real Red cardstock.
Cut the Real Red frame in half horizontally and adhere behind the focal image.
Mount the Crumb Cake piece of Moonlight Designer Series Paper (DSP) to a piece of Hello Honey cardstock. Emboss a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Big Shot™ with the Zig Zag Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and add this layer to the lower half of the card front (it is difficult to see the texture of the embossing in the photo).
Add the strip of embossed paper lace (cut with the Big Shot™ along with the Large Scallop Edgelit™ and embossed using the Delicate Accents Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder- I had this strip ready to go in my stash :-)).
Adhere the Hello Honey honeycomb piece of Moonlight DSP to a piece of Real Red cardstock and mount onto the card front.
Add the ½” Crumb Cake Seam Binding Strip to cover the edge of the embossed Delicate Designs layer and mount the entire panel onto the Real Red card base. Add the Apothecary Art focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment from Wetlands using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch.
Adhere the sentiment to a layer of Real Red cardstock (creating the banner points using the Hexagon Punch as well) and mount the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. Add the Real Red button with the scrap piece of Hello Honey as “thread” to the far left side of the sentiment.
Add the strands of Pearls along the edge of the Crumb Cake ribbon and add the ½” Crumb Cake Seam Binding Triple Ribbon bow.
Create the rolled flower using Real Red cardstock and the 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punch- punch the scallop circle, hand cut a wavy spiral from the outside of the scallop circle toward the center, use the Bone Folder to curl the edges of the petals a bit, roll up from the outside edge and adhere using Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive or a Hot Glue Gun).
Add the leaves from Hello Honey cardstock (created with the Bird Builder Punch) to the rolled flower and adhere to center of the bow to finish off the card.
