For those of you who are not familiar with The Card Concept Challenge, we are a bi-weekly challenge that uses an inspiration photo for you to create a card.
What a fun inspiration photo! I love this red truck with the pumpkins and those glorious fall colors in the background, don’t you? I was inspired by the Harvest theme as well as the colors to create a Clean and Layered Mixed Media card!
What will inspire your card? Will it be the colors in the photo (or color dots), the elements, the textures, the theme or something else?
You can choose one card-making style or a combination of styles, the choice is yours, plus our Design Team of eleven ladies create a card to help give you even more inspiration! We hope you are able to join us!
I enjoy participating with other online challenges and will be linking to one of my favs, Word Art Wednesday #511-#512 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit The Card Concept, or the Word Art Wednesday challenge site yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Using a MISTI™ Stamping Tool, position a piece of 4 ¼” x 5 ½” white cardstock into the corner of the tool.
Ink the Seed Packets Background image from Artistic Outpost (available at Divinity Designs LLC) with Brushed Corduroy distress ink, stamp onto the piece of white cardstock (leave the stamp in the same position in the stamping tool).
Once you are satisfied with the coloring, heat set the ink to dry thoroughly.
Using an embossing powder tool, de-static the stamped/colored panel, re-position the panel in the stamping tool and ink the Seed Background stamp with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink. Stamp over the colored panel, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, trim the panel to approx. 3 ¾” x 5”, mount onto a piece of green cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of black cardstock.
Adhere the entire background panel to a white card base.
Ink the verse sentiment from Plough the Fields (Divinity Designs LLC) with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto a prepared piece of white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, die cut with a stitched oval die. Mount onto another oval die cut from black cardstock (I split that die in half so only the edges would show slightly).
Add the oval sentiment to the card front with dimensional foam.
Create a looped bow with natural twine, adhere to the front of the card and finish off with a button.
