TCC138a Love Begins In A Moment
Normally we take a break over the summer at The Card Concept, but this year several of the designers wanted to continue the challenge all summer long, so here we are!
If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to check out the rest of the inspiration from our Design Team- their cards are fabulous!!
I love the colors in this photo as well as the black and white stripes and was inspired to create a fairly simple Mixed Media /Classy and Elegant card!
As many of you know, I am making an effort to ink up some of my older stamps that I have not used in a while so I pulled out two retired Stampin' Up! sets for this card.
I am also linking to the Double Trouble Tic-Tac-Toe #61 Challenge (Diagonal Row, Emboss-Flowers-Green) along with the A Bit More Time to Craft #119 “Anything Goes” Challenge and the Cardz 4 Galz #125 “Wedding” Challenge.
To create this card:
Tap several colors of distress oxide ink (see the colors listed below) onto a piece of acetate, spritz with water and press a piece of white cardstock into the ink. Lift up and repeat until you are satisfied with the background, use a heat tool to dry the panel between layers.
De-static the panel with an embossing powder tool, ink and stamp the Postage Due image and sentiment, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die. Mount onto black cardstock and trim close to the edge.
Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the floral area.
Add a strip of black seam binding to the card front, wrapping the ends behind the panel and adhere the bow.
Mount onto a white card base and to finish off the card.
