PP151- A Thank You for The Paper Players
I wanted to create a card for The Paper Player’s PP151 Sketch Challenge and decided to use some of my retired Designer Paper stash along with retired ribbon- I have so much of both in my stamping (craft) room that it would be a shame not to use it :-) Of course, the items can be substituted with current product as well :-)
Again, if you have a chance, check out their Design Team samples and other entries- they are the best!!
To create this card:
Cut several pieces of the Designer Series Paper (I used the retired International Bazaar) and attach to a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I decided to sew around the edges (love my new little sewing machine) and then emboss using the Big Shot™ and the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Trim the edges so the Whisper White base does not show.
Stamp the coral image from By The Tide using Tangerine Tango Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Also stamp the script image using Island Indigo Classic Ink, punch out the image with the 2 1/2” Circle Punch and adhere a circle of Island Indigo behind the image.
Adhere the coral image to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals™, add the Tea Lace Paper Doily along with the sentiment (punched out using the Decorative Label Punch).
Stamp the seahorses using Island Indigo Classic Ink as well as the Nantucket images. Apply a bit of Frost White Shimmer Paint to the seahorses to add a bit of iridescence. Use the ¾” Circle Punch to punch the Nantucket image out and layer behind ¾” Circles of Island Indigo cardstock (layer two to “peek” out behind the main image).
Add the 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon triple bow along with the seahorses, Nantucket images and Antique Brad.
Adhere the entire panel to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and mount onto a piece of Whisper White card base.
Add the Pearls to the corners to finish off the card.
