Celebrate!! Three in One!
I hope all of you had a wonderful week! I decided to create a card featuring some of the 2013 Spring/Summer Mini Catalog items along with a new stamp set from the upcoming 2013 Sale-A-Bration (SAB). Plus, I am so thankful that I was able to use scraps for all of the layers- love going "green"!!
This card incorporates three Challenges- TheFriday Mashup FM92 Challenge, the SR158 Stampin’ Royalty Inspiration Photo and the Freshly Made FMS68 Sketch.
If you have the time, check out each site for wonderful inspiration and see how creative all of the Design Team members were this week!
Use the Big Shot™ with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of the Very Vanilla cardstock. Mount this onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, add the Tangerine Tango DSP and s strip of Early Espresso cardstock to cover the cut edge.
Stamp the bicycle image from the new SAB Feeling Sentimental stamp set using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Adhere to Early Espresso cardstock and again onto a “frame” created with Pool Party DSP (from retired Just Eat Cake) and Early Espresso cardstock.
Create the lower strip at the bottom of the card using another strip of DSP from Summer Smooches (featuring Island Indigo), scrap strip of the DSP from the lower half of the card, mount onto Early Espresso cardstock and add the 18” Scalloped Lace Trim from the new Spring/Summer Mini Artisan Embellishment kit (I cut the lace in half so I can use the other half for another card).
Add the banner sentiment (points created with the 1 3/8" Square Punch), the 5/16” Neutral Brads along with Pearls to finish off the card.
