Congrats- One Word Challenge
Hi Again Friends!
Today I will be sharing three additional cards that I designed for the April 2016 MISSION- Cards for A Cause at Splitcoaststampers (Homeless Veterans Program at Miami VA Medical Center- see details here) and all three cards use the Cape Cod designer paper from The Paper Studio (this first card was super easy to create since the designer paper does all of the “work” :-)).
This card will also be linked to the Splitcoaststampers’ Free For All F4A304 “One Word Wonder” Challenge as well as the USEIT2016 Challenge (I had not inked up the retired 2015 SAB set Simply Wonderful stamp set until now).
I hope you will take the time to visit the above linked sites- so much inspiration!
To create this card:
Trim and distress the edges of the seahorse design from The Paper Studio, add shadows to the seahorse using the Stampin’ Write Sahara Sand Marker, mount onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and adhere to a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock.
Add the 1” Dark Navy grosgrain ribbon and layer the 5/8” Rust Satin Ribbon over the grosgrain (wrapping the edges and adhering to the back).
Mount the entire panel onto the Whisper White card base.
Ink the sentiment from the retired Simply Wonderful stamp set with Stāz-On® Midnight Blue Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, cut out with the Big Shot™ using the Rose Garden Thinlits™.
Cut another frame with the Rose Garden Thinlit™, cut in half and mount behind the sentiment label.
Ink the Timeless Textures stamp with Sahara Sand Classic Ink and repeatedly stamp over the sentiment.
Mount the sentiment to the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
