Card for A Cause, Sketch and Colour Challenge :-)
I am continuing to create cards for the Splitcoaststampers April 2016 MISSION- Cards for A Cause- this month, encouragement cards are being sent to the Miami VA Medical Center for the Homeless Veterans Program (see details here).
As I mentioned in a previous post, I am so thankful to have a chance to possibly give a little back to those who have sacrificed so much for our country and to think that they are now homeless and now in need.....I hope these cards that are donated will bring a bit of hope to the recipients and, there is still time, if you would like to send cards to this cause (again, please see details here- if you do not have a Splitcoaststampers’ sign-on, it is free to sign up).
This card was also designed using the Paper Craft Crew Card #191 Sketch Challenge along with the Global Design Project #GDP033 Colour Challenge and the Inkspirational #107 "Vehicles" Challenge.
Hopefully you will have a chance to visit the above mentioned challenge sites- so many wonderful Design Teams samples and entries!
To create this card:
Ink the train image from Traveler with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Trim the panel, color the train with the Stampin’ Write Sahara Sand marker and add distressing to the background with stamps from Timeless Textures (stamped with Sahara Sand Classic Ink).
Mount the panel onto Sahara Sand cardstock, trim and mount onto Night of Navy cardstock and distress with the retired Distressing Tool.
Ink the sentiment from the retired set, Absolutely Fabulous with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Create the banner points on the end with the Hexagon Punch (soon to be retired), mount onto Night of Navy cardstock, trim and punch the banner points again with the Hexagon Punch and add texture with Sahara Sand Classic Ink and the Timeless Textures stamp.
Create the background for the next layer using the suitcase, journal and camera from Traveler, stamp onto a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock with Night of Navy Classic Ink (masking the images as you stamp onto the panel).
Trim the stamped background, mount onto Night of Navy cardstock and distress the edges with the Distressing Tool.
The larger background was created with stamps from the Timeless Textures set, stamped with Sahara Sand Classic Ink onto Sahara Sand cardstock, distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and mount onto the Night of Navy card front.
Ink the Timeless Textures images with Night of Navy and stamp onto a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock, cut with the Big Shot™ using the Circle Framelits™ (also cutting the same size circle from Night of Navy cardstock), mount the stamped Calypso Coral circle die cut onto the Night of Navy circle and distress the edges of both with the Distressing Tool.
Layer the card per the sketch and add the Calypso Coral banners (created with the Banner Triple Punch and retired Crimper Tool).
