TCC58 He Has Made Everything Beautiful
Today we have the brand new SC611 Sketch Challenge at Splitcoaststampers as well as the new TCC58 Inspiration Challenge at The Card Concept!
It is a truly an honor to be on both Design Teams and I decided to combine the two for my Shabby Chic card (I have moved from the Mixed Media category at The Card Concept to the Shabby Chic category :-)).
I am also linking this card to the Word Art Wednesday #248-#249 "Anything Goes" Challenge :-)
Ink the sentiment from the Verve Stamps, Scripture Medley 3 with archival black ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Die cut the sentiment panel with the MFT Stitched Rectangle STAX Dies and distress the edges with a distressing tool.
Place the Memory Box (MB) Pattern Heartwood Stencil over the die cut sentiment panel and use a Clarity Stencil Brush to lightly apply Fossilized Amber Distress Ink, mount this panel onto another piece of Whisper White cardstock (trimming approx. 1/8” from to the edge) and distress the edges.
Die cut a piece of the green flourish pattern paper from the Echo Park Style Essentials 6x6 Paper Pad with the MFT Stitched Rectangle STAX Dies and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, distress the edges.
Die cut the yellow floral pattern paper from the Echo Park Style Essentials 6x6 Paper Pad with the MFT Blueprints 13 Dies, mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, distress the edges with the Distressing Tool.
Mount the yellow floral background panel onto the white card base, add the green flourish panel on an angle (per the sketch) and trim the edges off the side and top, as needed.
Add the sentiment panel to the card front and adhere the Daffodil Delight ½” Seam Binding Triple Ribbon Bow.
Create the roses with the MFT Royal Rose Die and Mini Royal Rose Dies from Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette cardstock ( I die cut the roses and use the Crimper Tool to crimp the paper before rolling and gluing the rose together).
Punch the leaves from the scrap piece of the green flourish pattern paper used for the background panel with the Martha Stewart (MS) Leaf Punch, add the leaves to the card front before mounting the roses.
Use a clear glitter pen to apply glitter to the roses and add a few pearls to the corners to finish off the card!
