HYCCT1402 Hope Floats
Hi Again Stampers!
Here is another entry for the Splitcoaststampers Hope You Can Cling To Challenge (HYCCT) to promote Breast Cancer Awareness and create cards to encourage those with cancer and their families.
This card was created for the rgrohall aka Rebecca aka bellacarta HYCCT1402 "Hope Floats" Challenge (see the gallery here and the details for the challenge here) along with the Splitcoaststampers SC511 Sketch Challenge.
Again, I hope you will find the time to check out the links above and see all of the fabulous and inspiring samples!
To create this card:
Stamp the image from the retired set, Birds (I love using my retired sets) using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Punch the image out using the 2 ½” Circle Punch and also punch a circle from Basic Black cardstock. Cut the Basic Black circle in half and mount behind the focal image.
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Lacy BrocadeTextured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and add the 5/8” Basic Black Triple Satin Ribbon bow.
Stamp the sentiment from Heartspeak using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of retired Blushing Bride Designer Series (DSP). Add two strips of Basic Black cardstock to mimic an entire layer (and reduce the weight for mailing) and mount onto the embossed card front.
Adhere the entire panel to the Blushing Bride card front and mount the bird images using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add the Pearls to finish off the card.
