CC493 Joy of the Journey
This is the first card of two that I created for the new CC493 Splitcoaststampers’ Color Challenge- Calypso Coral, Lost Lagoon and Old Olive with the dessert option- use something recycled :-)
If you have not visited the challenge site yet, I encourage you to do so- marvelous inspiration and I hope you can play along with us this week!
The main focal panel is from Graphic 45’s Come Away With Me paper series – darken some of the colors using Stampin’ Write markers- Old Olive for the trees, Lost Lagoon for the background and Calypso Coral for the dress.
Once the coloring was finished, apply Ranger© Tim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Stain to “antique” the paper.
Mount the panel onto Calypso Coral cardstock, trim and mount onto Lost Lagoon cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Zig Zag Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of retired Epic Day Designer Series Paper (DSP). Lightly sand the embossed panel using a Sanding Block, trim and mount onto a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock.
Add a piece of cardboard (for the recycled item- split the cardboard to open up for the core to show) along with a ½ White Tea Lace Paper Doily. Add the 3/8” Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta ribbon strips and triple ribbon bow.
Mount the panel onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock, trim again and mount onto Lost Lagoon cardstock and finally mount onto the Calypso Coral card base.
Create the rolled flowers from Lost Lagoon and Calypso Coral cardstock using 1 ¼” and 1 ¾” Scallop Circle Punches- punch the scallop circles, hand cut a wavy spiral from the outside of the scallop circle toward the center, use the retired Crimper Tool to distress a bit (or just scrunch the paper by hand), roll up from the outside edge and adhere using Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive or a Hot Glue Gun. Create the leaves from Old Olive cardstock with the Bird Builder Punch.
Add the flowers to the card front along with the Pearls to finish off the card.
