TCC108 Follow My Heart
It's time for Valentines Day is around the corner- have you made a card for your Valentine yet?
If not, we hope you will join us at The Card Concept! I was inspired by the red, black and white to design a Shabby Chic card – not sure if I will give this one to my hubby since it is a bit feminine, but it would be perfect for a friend of mine.
I also incorporated the Mojo Monday #508 Sketch Challenge, the As You See It #193 “Eclectic Style” Challenge and the Simon Says Monday “Add Some Red” Challenge.
Just a reminder that is a bi-weekly challenge that has an inspiration photo along with a suggestion 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 (or you can combine several styles for your own style).
If you have not had a chance to visit us at The Card Concept or the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will find time to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool. Using Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, stamp the Eiffel Tower and banner image from the retired Follow My Heart stamp set (Stampin’ Up!) onto the prepared panel, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing has cooled, fussy-cut the Eiffel Tower and use the retired Banner Punch to punch out the banner.
2). Trim a piece of striped Poppy Parade designer paper to approx.. 4” x 5 ¼”, mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. Trim and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
3). Create the remaining layers for the sketch from designer paper along with Whisper White cardstock, Wrap pieces of black hemp twine around the white banner layer, mount per the sketch onto the card front (using dimensional foam behind the main square panel and under the ends of the vertical black/white panel.
4). Use the retired Sweetheart Punch to punch out one heart from Whisper White cardstock and two hearts from Basic Black cardstock, Layer the two black hearts behind the white heart and mount onto the card front. Add the fussy-cut Eiffel Tower image with dimensional foam (I first mounted the Eiffel Tower image onto Basic Black cardstock to give it a bit more stability).
5). Add the looped black hemp bow and use a small punched out heart for the center of the bow, To finish off the card, apply shimmer to the small heart in the center of the bow using a clear glitter pen and add the White Tea Lace Doily pieces to the corners.
