HYCCT1414 The Fabric of Friendship
I hope all of you in the U.S. had a great Thanksgiving!! We are truly blessed :-)
It has been a busy month with my husband’s chemo treatments and doctor appointments along with Thanksgiving, so I apologize for not posting these cards sooner :-)
I hoping to be able to finish posting the remaining cards that I created for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge (HYCCT) Card Drive at Splitcoaststampers over the next few weeks- the goal of the card drive is to provide cards to the patients and their guests to send as encouragement, etc. for their personal use.
With that in mind, I tried to find sentiments that I thought could be used for various occasions and tried to limit the layers so they would not have to include additional postage :-)
This card was created for HYCCT1414 berlycece aka Kim’s “It’s Time to Step” Challenge - (see the gallery here and the details here) along with tutorial for the step card that I used from Splitcoaststampers (here)
To create this card:
After cutting the base for the card from Very Vanilla cardstock, I covered the card with Early Espresso cardstock.
Ink the stamp images from the retired Fabric of Friendship stamp set using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and color using Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils along with the AquaPainter™.
Use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges of the dress from and sewing basket images.
Use the smaller images (button and scissors) with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink and stamp over the sentiment- punch the sentiment out using the Note Punch.
Clean and re-ink the sentiment using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink and stamp around the dress form image to fill in the background. Ink the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink and stamp repeatedly over all of the images.
Use a Sponge Dauber with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink to distress all of the edges and panels (“antiquing” the paper).
Add the sewing Washi Tape to the side panels and center lower panel as well as the corner of the dress form panel.
Mount the dress form image to the center piece of the step panel and add additional sewing Washi Tape to the corner.
Mount the sewing machine image to piece of Early Espresso cardstock and add to the front of the card.
Mount the punched sentiment image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. Add the Venetian Crochet Lace with the Vintage Trinket. Add the button to the tag and lower left corner of the center panel.
Add the White Tea Lace Paper Doily to the sides of the center panel to finish off the card.
