Today I am sharing a card designed with the newGraphic 45 Catch of the Day 8x8 Paper Pad and a sentiment from the Stamp Simply Words of Encouragement stamp set along with dies/supplies (from Stamp Simply)!
I am also participating in the Simon Says Monday “Red, White and/or Blue” Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Trim the panels from the Graphic 45 Catch of the Day paper– for the card front (sketch layer #5) from the red background paper- trim to approx. 3 ¾” x 5” . For sketch layer #3 (from the dark blue patterned rectangle)- trim to approx. 2 ½” x 3 ½”. Trim the lighthouse (for layer #4) from the cut-apart paper to approx. 3 ¼” x 4 ¼”.
For the lower easel part of the card: from the red background paper- trim a piece approx. 3 ¾” x 2 ½”. Trim the strip of postage stamp border to approx. 3 ¾”.
Mount each of the above trimmed panels onto white cardstock, trim close to the edge. Using a blending brush, apply Antique Linen Distress ink to the edges to “antique” the paper. Mount all onto navy cardstock and trim again, close to the edge.
To create the main card front panel, add the dark blue patterned rectangle (layer #2) directly to the red patterned background panel (layer #1).
Adhere a few pieces of cheesecloth to the upper and lower right-hand area, and to the middle left-hand near the top edge of the dark blue rectangle panel.
Adhere the lighthouse panel with dimensional foam (or chipboard)- for layer #4.
Fussy cut the postage stamp images from the designer paper, mount onto navy cardstock and trim close to the edge.
Adhere two postage stamps over the cheesecloth on the left (for layer #3 of the sketch) and one on the lower right (for layer #5).
Adhere the layered postage stamp strip to the red patterned paper rectangle (for the easel base) and mount the sentiment using dimensional foam and/or chipboard.
Adhere the sentiment panel onto the lower portion of the easel base with dimensional foam (or chipboard).
To finish off the card, adhere
the layered lighthouse card front to the upper part of the easel base.
