Cards for A Cause- You're The Best
This card is another design that I created for the Splitcoaststampers' April 2016 MISSION- Cards for a Cause (see details here) along with the SC586 Sketch Challenge and the Simon Monday “Show Us Your Metal” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to check out the above challenge sites, I hope you will find time to do so- wonderful samples from all!
Using a 2” Circle Punch, punch out the map image from the Paper Studio Cape Cod Designer Paper.
Use the Big Shot™ with the My Favorite Things™ (MFT) Stitched Circle STAX Dies to cut out a circle from Really Rust cardstock and adhere the map image circle to the die cut.
Trim the other pieces of the Cape Cod paper, adhere to a piece of Really Rust cardstock and mount onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock using a zig zag stitch.
Apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Ink over the edges of the sewing and paper to “age” the thread.
Wrap a piece of 1” Dark Navy Grosgrain Ribbon around the card front, add the metal Nautical Charm with an Antique Brass brad, create a metal “rope” with brass wire and loop over a strip of 5/8” Rust Satin Ribbon (wrapping the ends of the Rust ribbon behind the back of the card front).
Mount the entire panel onto the Whisper White card base.
Ink the sentiment from the retired stamp set, Simply Wonderful using Stāz-On® Midnight Blue ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.
Apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Ink over the paper, punch the ends with the Hexagon Punch to create the banner points, mount onto Really Rust cardstock and punch the banner points with the punch.
Add the Night of Navy banner behind the sentiment and add texture to the background with the Timeless Textures stamp using Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Ink.
Mount the die cut circle along with the sentiment using dimensional foam to finish off the card.
