SC762 Peace Within
Today I am sharing a card that was designed using the retired Stampin’ Up! set, Peace Within (for the focal image) and the sentiment from Olive and Oak (Power Poppy by Marcella digi). I have not used the Peace Within set for several years and found the printed sentiment already die cut in my stash during the recent re-organization of my craft room :-)
I used the Splitcoaststampers (SCS) SC762 Sketch for the layout and am also joining the Cards4 Galz #108 Something Beginning with an "S” (S=Straw Basket, Stitched Dies, Stitched Ribbon, Stampin’ Up!) along with the Word Art Wednesday #410-#411 “Anything Goes”Challenge.
To create this card:
Ink the bird with the basket image with Versafine™ Onyx Black, stamp onto a piece of prepared white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor with water-based markers (see colors below) and die cut with a stitched circle die. Mount onto a circle die cut from espresso cardstock.
Import the sentiment from the digi set into a word processing program, re-size and print out onto white cardstock. Die cut with a stitched circle die, mount onto a circle die cut from espresso cardstock.
Dry emboss a piece of white cardstock with the lacy brocade embossing folder (retired Stampin’ Up!), trim and mount onto a piece of espresso cardstock, trim close to the edge and mount onto light pink cardstock.
Add a strip of chevron grosgrain ribbon along with the crochet lace, wrapping the ends of the ribbon behind the panel. Add a piece of ¼” stitched chocolate ribbon, again, wrapping the ends of the ribbon behind the panel.
Adhere the focal image and sentiment to the panel with dimensional foam (I used chipboard vs. foam).
Add the striped chocolate ribbon with the gold cord at the top of the card (for the triangular element in the sketch) wrapping the ends behind the panel. Mount the entire panel onto a white card base.
Finish off the card using a clear glitter pen on the flowers along with a white gel pen for highlights.
