TCC52 I Will Give You Rest
Woohoo! It’s the The Card Concept's 2nd Anniversary and time for the new #TCC52 "2nd Anniversary and Prizes" Challenge!
I took inspiration from the gorgeous script and neutral colors along with the flowers and black satin for my Mixed Media card.
Just a reminder that the Card Concept is a bi-weekly challenge that has an inspiration photo along with a number of design styles that you can choose from to create your card- Clean and Simple, Clean and Graphic, Clean and Layered, Shabby Chic, Freestyle Collage, Classy and Elegant and Mixed Media.
I have also linked this card to the Alphabet Challenge “B for Beautiful Butterflies” Challenge along with the Splitcoaststampers’ MIX165 “Winging It” Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday "Anything Goes" Challenge.
I hope you have a chance to visit us at The Card Concept and check out the rest of our Design Team samples as well as the Alphabet and Splitcoaststampers challenge sites- wonderful inspiration from all!!
Ink the verse from the Scripture Collection 4 from Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the ODBD Stitched Ovals Dies to cut out the stamped verse and also cut out a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Split the Basic Black oval in half and adhere behind the die cut verse, apply Tim Holtz® Vintage Distress Medium over the surface and allow to air dry.
Distress the edges of the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper (DSP) with a Distressing Tool, apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper and Tea Dye Distress Stains, heat with the Heat Tool to dry the DSP, apply Tim Holtz® Vintage Distress Collage Medium and once dry apply Tim Holtz® Crazing Distress Medium.
Mount the panel to a piece of Basic Black cardstock, add the Scripture layered die cut to the background panel, adhere a piece of 1” Black Satin Ribbon over the panel (wrapping the edges behind the background panel) and mount the entire panel to the Whisper White card base).
Create the rolled roses with the
Big Shot™ with My Favorite Things (MFT) Large Royal Rose Dies and Royal Rose Dies, roll up the
flowers and adhere with Hot Glue in the centers to hold the roses together.
Spritz the flowers with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint spray, punch out the leaves with the Martha Stewart (MS) Leaf Punch from Basic Black cardstock and add the roses with the leaves to the card front (again, I used Hot Glue).
Stamp the butterflies from Stampin’ Up! Papillon Potpourri using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, color with an AquaPainter™ and Ranger® Tim Holtz® Tea Dye Distress Stain, punch out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and spritz with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint spray.
Mount the butterflies onto the card front and add the Pearls to the centers of the butterflies, the corners of the card base and along the sentiment to finish off the card.
