Happy Birthday! A "Hybrid" Card for A Sketch and Color Challenge :-)

Hi Stampers! 

I hope all of you are having a great Wednesday so far!  Last night while I was working with My Digital Studio, I decided to create a card for the DD49Dynamic Duos Color Challenge and the Pals Paper Arts PPA157 Sketch Challenge.  Both of these sites have wonderful Design Teams and are a source of inspiration for all- of you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will visit them soon :-)

To make this “hybrid” card:

Print the Postage Due Stamp Brush set and the sentiment from Watercolor Trio onto Whisper White cardstock (I "re-sized" both elements).  

Trim the area around the Postage Due image and use the XL Oval Punch to punch out the sentiment. Adhere the Postage Due layer onto Basic  Gray cardstock and again onto Whisper White cardstock.   

Use the Big Shot™ with the Large Scallop Edgelit™ to cut the edge of a piece of Whisper White cardstock and emboss using the Delicate Accents (Lace) Textured Impressions™ Folder.

Layer a piece of Basic Black Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto Basic Black cardstock (I used a piece from the retired Night and Day), add the additional layers of embossed panel and checkerboard DSP (again, retired SU! background paper from years ago, embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder).  Add the focal image and sentiment using Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Adhere the 5/8” Black Satin Ribbon bow with a Mini Glue Dot to finish off the card :-)

Stamp Sets:  Postage Due, Watercolor Trio (both MDS)

Ink: Printer Ink- Black

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Designer Series Paper- retired Night and Day, retired Background Paper

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Delicate Accents (Lace) and Square LatticeTextured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, XL Oval Punch, 5/8” Black Satin Ribbon

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a great day!!

I love what you did with this digital version of this set, Julie, also love it in black and white! I have not used this set many times as I just can't wrap my brain around it! Beautiful card. Have a fabulous weekend.
