SUO134 Thank You
It’s time for the new SUO134 “Thank You Very Much” Challenge and I decided to create a somewhat masculine “thank you” card using the Pals PaperArts PPA273 Sketch Challenge along with the FabFri75 Color Challenge.
I hope you will have a chance to check out the Pals Paper Arts and Fab Friday Challenge sites as well as my sister Design Team member samples at the SU-Only Challenges- great inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Create the circle mask for the sun/moon with the 1 ¼” Circle Punch and using Sponge Daubers, apply Tangelo Twist Classic Ink to the sky area and Bermuda Bay to the water.
Use an AquaPainter™ to blend some of the ink and wash a bit of the color over the sun/moon.
Once you are satisfied with the sponging, use the fine tip end of the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to add additional waves in the foreground and a few birds to the sky.
Use the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker to add shadows to the sails and lightly sponge a bit of Tangelo Twist over the waves as a reflection of the sky.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Square Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and set aside.
Ink the globe image using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink and stamp onto Bermuda Bay cardstock.
Punch out the globe image with a 2” Circle Punch and also punch a 2” circle from Basic Black cardstock.
Cut both the stamped circle and black circle in half and adhere each of the black circle halves behind the stamped globe halves and mount behind the focal image square.
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Use the Stampin’ Write Basic Black Marker to color in the “thank you” from the Me=Grateful sentiment and stamp onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
Add the chevron embossed panel, trim and mount the knotted Natural Linen Thread to the center.
Add the panel to a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.
Add the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and a few Rhinestones near the sentiment to finish off the card.
