CCEE1532 National Golf Month with Graphic 45™
Hi Again Stampers!
Last night I had a chance to play in my craft room and decided to create a few cards using the CCEE1532 “National Golf Month” Theme Challenge.
Since I do not own any "golf" stamps, I decided to incorporate Graphic 45™ Good Ol’ Sport Collection Designer Paper.
I just love the Graphic 45™ vintage style images but when my husband looked at the card, he said “The lady has a tennis racket, not a golf club” and I told him, “But the man has golf clubs” so hope this qualifies as a golf themed card- lol!!
If you have not visited the CCEE Challenge site yet, I encourage you to do so- marvelous inspiration from all!
The Graphic 45™ paper does most of the work so this card was fairly simple to create:
Distress the edge of the Newsworthy Designer Paper using the Distressing Tool, mount onto Night of Navy cardstock, trim and mount onto the Wild Wasabi card base and apply a bit of Ranger® Tim Holtz® Tea Dye Distress Ink to “antique” the paper with a sponge applicator.
Trim the Touchdown cutaway and mount onto Night of Navy and Wild Wasabi cardstock. Create the banners using the Banner Punch and adhere the banners at the bottom of the panel.
Ink the retired French Foliage script stamp using Ranger® Tim Holtz® Tea Dye Distress Ink and stamp onto the panel and add the postage mark stamp using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink.
Stamp the sentiment from the retired Kind & Caring Thoughts using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and add the splatter from Gorgeous Grunge using Ranger® Tim Holtz® Tea Dye Distress Ink onto the sentiment and focal image panel.
Trim the sentiment and create the banner points with the Hexagon Punch, mount onto Night of Navy cardstock and create the points again with the Hexagon Punch.
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of retired Poppy Parade cardstock, distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and Ranger® Tim Holtz® Tea Dye Distress Ink.
Mount onto Night of Navy cardstock and adhere to the card front.
Add the red grosgrain ribbon loops to the focal image panel and mount the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Mount the sentiment to finish off the card.
