Woohoo! I am excited to be the Guest Designer for the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #130!
One of the perks of being chosen as the "Designer's Choice" at the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge is that you can be a future Guest Designer! I love participating with their challenge and am honored to have been chosen.
The card that I designed uses the diagonal column (Large Sentiment- Leaves- Heat Embossing).
I decided to pull out a stamp set/die combo that I purchased at least a year ago and have not had a chance to use yet- Lace Leaf Stamp Set and Grateful Leaves Dies (Concord and 9th).
I have been slowly making an effort to try to use stamps/dies that are in my "stash" and am thankful that I could use this set :-)
I also enjoy participating with online challenges and will also be linking this card to the Simon Says Monday “Stamp It” Challenge, Simon Says Wednesday “Sparkle and Shine” Challenge along with the Word Art Wednesday #507-#508 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge or the above challenge sites yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- gorgeous galleries and inspiration from all!
To create this card:
De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the lacy leaf image with Versamark™ ink onto the prepared panel, apply extra fine gold and copper embossing powder (I applied the gold first, making sure that I did not cover the entire leaf, then applied copper to the remaining areas). Heat set the embossing powder with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, die cut the panel with a stitched embossing die, mount onto black cardstock, trim close to the edge and adhere to gold metallic cardstock.
Mount the panel onto a white card base.
Die cut the “Grateful” word from black cardstock and again, from two pieces of white cardstock. Adhere the white dies together before adding the black die cut sentiment on top.
Mount the sentiment to the card front and use a clear glitter marker to add shimmer to the letters.
Add a few gold and white Nuvo™ Crystal Drops to finish off the card.
