PP289 Western Thinking of You
Hi Again Friends!
I had a chance today to create a card for The Paper Players PP289 “WesternTheme” Challenge along with the Mojo442 Sketch Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge site galleries yet, again, I highly encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
De-static a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the Nature Silhouettes (retired Stampin’ Up!) tree and wolf image using Versamark™ Ink, stamp onto the prepared cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Early Espresso Embossing Powder (retired) and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Once the embossing powder has cooled, trim the image, mount onto Early Espresso cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of retired Dusty Durango cardstock.
Trim a few pieces of the retired Outlaw Designer Paper (Stampin’ Up!) and use a sewing machine with the zig zag stitch to attach the pieces to Early Espresso cardstock for the elements of the sketch.
Mount the background panel to the Dusty Durango card base, add the wolf focal image with dimensional foam, add the sentiment and Vintage Brad with the ribbon detail.
Stamp Sets: Nature Silhouettes (retired), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Versamark™, Early Espresso Classic Ink
Paper/Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, retired Dusty Durango; retired Outlaw DSP
