Comfort and Hope Bloom in Your Heart- Clean and Layered (CAL)

Hi Stampers! 

I had a fabulous day crafting with one of my best friends and this evening decided to create a card using the Card Concept#17 "Be Inspired" Challenge along with the final STS#27 Seize The Sketch Challenge to create a Clean and Layer (CAL) card. 

I hope you will find the time to visit both sites to see the gorgeous Design Team cards as well as a terrific gallery of entries!  

So sad that this is the final challenge for Seize The Sketch – I will miss their sketch challenges and wish them all the best!

To create this CAL card:

Ink the large blossom stamp from the retired set, Betsy’s Blossoms using Summer Starfruit Classic Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. 

Cut into squares and mount onto Basic Gray cardstock.

Score a piece of Whisper White cardstock at the top and bottom, trim and stamp the sentiment using Basic Gray Classic Ink.

Mount a second panel of Whisper White cardstock onto the Basic Gray card base and adhere the scored panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Mount the stamped image squares using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the die cut bird to the card front.

Add a few Pearls to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Bloom with Hope, Betsy’s Blossoms (retired)

Ink: Basic Gray, Summer Starfruit (retired)

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray

Accessories: Big Shot™, Simply Scored™, Birds and Feather Die Cut (Sweet -n-Sassy), Pearls

Thanks again for visiting- I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
