Sending Prayers Your Way
I hope all of you are having a great week so far! Today I am sharing a quick card using a sentiment from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps, Floral Greetings (designed by Graciellie Designs) along with a Distress Oxide background and a retired SNSS Bare Tree Die.
We have several friends that need prayer on a regular basis so I thought I would create a card that would be gender neutral and I absolutely love using the new Distress Oxide Inks!! So much fun and each background looks different :-)
I incorporated the Global Design Project #94 Sketch Challenge along with the Double "D" Challenges “Pastel Party” Challenge into the design.
If you have not already had a chance to visit the above challenge sites, I hope you will do so- they both have wonderful Design Teams as well as inspiration in their galleries.
To create this card:
1). Using Distress Oxide Inks (I used Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Wilted Violet), press the ink pads onto a silicone craft mat, spritz with water and lay a piece of white cardstock into the ink. Lift up and repeat until you are satisfied with the coverage, spritz the panel again with water and heat set with a heat tool. Cut the panel into strips, mount onto black cardstock and trim close to the edge.
2). Ink the sentiment from Floral Greetings with Versafine™ Black Archival Ink and stamp onto one of the panels.
2). Mount the strips onto black cardstock and trim close to the edge.
3). Trim a piece of white cardstock and mount onto the black card front, adhere the entire panel onto the white card base.
4), Adhere the background strips with dimensional foam to the card front (per the sketch).
5). Die cut the tree die from black cardstock, mount onto the card front and add a few sequins to finish off the card.
