Botanical Tea Thinking of You- A Color and A Sketch
I had a chance to play around in my craft room last night and decided to create two cards using the Just Us Girls JUGS289 Color Week Challenge along with a different Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge.
I will post the cards in separate posts and this card incorporates the SC532 Sketch- see details here and the gallery here.
If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above sites- they have wonderfully diverse Design Team samples as well as inspiration from their galleries!
Using Early Espresso Classic Ink, stamp the sentiment from the Peonies & Tulips Dynamic Duos from Power Poppy© by Marcella Hawley onto Very Vanilla cardstock and punch out with the Word Window Punch.
Layer onto another frame created from two pieces of Early Espresso cardstock punched from the Word Window Punch and layered to be just a bit wider than the sentiment.
Trim the Graphic 45® Botanical Tea cut-apart and mount onto a piece of Soft Suede cardstock.
Trim the striped Botanical Tea background paper and mount onto a piece of Soft Suede cardstock, trim again and mount onto the a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
Trim the blue patterned Botanical Tea background paper and mount onto a piece of Soft Suede cardstock.
Add the blue vertical panel to the striped background, add the strip of 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon and mount the entire background panel onto the Soft Suede card base.
Add the 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Double Ribbon Bow to the focal image panel and mount onto card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Use the Big Shot™ with the My Favorite Things® (MFT) Royal Mini Rose dies to cut out the roses from retired Baja Breeze cardstock, run through the Crimper Tool to soften the paper, roll up and adhere with adhesive (I used Hot Glue).
Add the rolled roses with the Early Espresso leaves to the card front and mount the sentiment with a Stampin’ Dimensional® under the edge that hangs off the focal image panel.
Add the Pearls to finish off the card.
