TCC110 Be Strong
It's time for
I love the pieced wooden shamrock as well as the light wood door in the background and it inspired me to pull out a quilt stamp to create a Clean and Layered/Mixed Media card.
I am also linking this card to the Simon Says Work It Wednesday February “Green and Gold” Challenge, the Double Trouble #23“Wearin' O' the Green” Challenge (opt. #2- Gold and opt. #3-Heart to Heart Challenge) and the Heart 2 Heart “Anything Goes” Challenge.
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 Versamark™ Ink, stamp the Star Quilt and the sentiment from Scripture Collection 3 (both Divinity Designs formerly Our Daily Bread Designs) onto the prepared panel, apply gold embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing has cooled, fussy-cut around the quilt image and trim the sentiment panel.
2). Color the quilt with four different green water based markers (I used Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green, Call Me Clover and Garden Green- all Stampin’ Up!).
3). Trim another piece of white cardstock to 4” x 5 ¼” and mount onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, trim and mount onto a white card base.
4). Mount the quilt image onto the card front using dimensional foam or other dimensional product (I used some scrap chipboard).
5). Mount the sentiment to the front of the card, overlapping a bit of the quilt image (I used scrap chipboard for the dimension on the ends only).
6). Add a few drops of Nuvo™ Light Gold Crystal Drops around the quilt and sentiment to finish off the card.
