CAS Floral Get Well- Two Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers!

I wanted to create a card for the Ann’s Clean and Simple (CAS) PP196 Floral Theme Challenge at The Paper Players along with the Friday Mashup! FM160 Get Well Challenge (use the sketch or create a Get Well project or Mash It Up and create a Get Well project with the sketch :-))  

I know that this card may have more layers than the normal CAS card but it is CAS to me :-)

Both sites have wonderful Design Teams and inspiration from all of their entries- hope you have a chance to check them out!

To create this card:

Use Tuxedo Memento™ Black ink to stamp the floral image from Simply Sketched onto Whisper White cardstock.  Color using the new Stampin’ Blendabilities- Coastal Cabana Collection for the petals and the Old Olive Collection for the stems.

Create the shadows using the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker and add a few white highlights using the Chalk Marker.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Chalk Talk Framelits™ to cut out the floral shape and also cut the same size shape from Old Olive and Basic Black cardstock.  Cut the Old Olive and Basic Black frames in half and adhere behind the focal image.

Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and layer onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. 

Stamp the sentiment from Express Yourself using Tuxedo Memento™ Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the 1” Circle Punch.  Layer onto a 1” Circle of Old Olive and Basic Black cardstock and adhere to the side of the floral panel.

Add a strip of 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon and the double ribbon bow to the bottom of the image.

Mount the horizontal strip of Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto Basic Black cardstock and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Use the Big Shot™ with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the panel and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Add the focal image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Simply Sketched, Express Yourself (both 2013-2014 Hostess Sets)

Ink:  Tuxedo Memento™ Black, Stampin’ Blendabilities- Coastal Cabana and Old Olive Collections, Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker, Chalk Marker

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Old Olive, Eastern Elegance DSP

Accessories: Big Shot™, Chevron and Perfect Polka Dot Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, Chalk Talk Framelits™, 1” Circle Punch, retired 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon

Thanks again for taking the time to visit- I hope all of you have a wonderful Wednesday!!
