CC553 So Thankful For You
This is the first of two cards created for the Splitcoaststampers’ CC553 Color Challenge with a dessert option of Pearls or Rhinestones (an easy dessert option for me- lol! :-)).
I wanted to create a non-floral card and chose this wonderful Boho Cross image from Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD).
This card also incorporates the Splitcoaststampers F4A295 “Time to Loosen Up” Challenge as well.
Again, I hope you will take the time to visit both galleries to check out the wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the Boho Cross (ODBD) using Stāz-On® and stamp the image onto a piece of watercolor paper.
Color the cross with Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers.
Carefully brush Mod Podge® over the colored cross and allow to dry (this acts as a mask).
Spritz the watercolor paper with water and using Bermuda Bay and Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink, apply with an AquaPainter™ and allow the colors to blend (use a Heat Tool to dry the ink).
Ink the solid splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Calypso Coral Classic Ink and stamp over the background.
Ink the large splatter stamp using Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink and stamp onto the background.
Ink the retired Notable Notions script background stamp using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink and stamp over the background.
Use the Big Shot™ with the My Favorite Things ™ (MFT) Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the image, mount onto Calypso Coral cardstock and trim.
Stamp the sentiment from Doily Blessings (ODBD) using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Vellum, trim and add to the front of the cross image using Two-Way Glue.
Add the ¼” Calypso Coral Stitched Satin Ribbon to the corners (wrapping the ribbon around the corners to the back).
Cut a rectangle from Big Shot™ with the MFT Stitched Rectangle Die from Elegant Eggplant cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock with the Boho Chic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock, trim and mount onto the Elegant Eggplant card base.
Mount the Elegant Eggplant stitched rectangle onto the card front, mount the cross image onto the card front using dimensional foam.
Add Pearls to the ribbon to finish off the card.
