This is my card for the challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations I am a little late in posting mine & have taken a couple of days off, & now that I have sort of finished all the stuff I had to do, decided to make a sample.
The challenge was set by Kris & not only did we have to go by the sketch but also use the stamp set “Season of Joy”.
Base Card – Riding Hood Red – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – score @ 4 1/8″ or 10.47cm & fold in half
Layer 1 – Early Expresso – 5 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ or 14.5cm x 10.5cm
Layer 2 – Riding Hood Red – 4″ x 3 3/4″ or 10cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 – DSP – 3 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ or 9.5cm x 9cm
Layer 4 – Riding Hood Red – 3 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ or 9.5cm x 8cm
Layer 5 – Whisper White – 3 5/8″ x 3 1/8″ or 9cm x 7.5cm
Layer 6 – Early Expresso – 2 7/8″ x 2 3/8″ or 7cm x 6cm
Layer 7 – Whisper White – 2 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ or 6.5cm x 5.5cm
I sort of made up by card as I went along. In fact I started from the inside & worked my way out! It happens this way a lot for me!
Using Riding Hood Red Ink, I stamped my image direct onto Whisper White Cardstock & adhered to a piece of Early Expresso Cardstock with my Snail Adhesive.
I run the piece of Whisper White Cardstock through the Bigspot & Embossing Folder – Petals a Plenty, coloured the middle of the flowers with my SU Marker – Riding Hood Red & adhered to a piece of Riding Hood Red Cardstock. I thought this EF matched the stamp set perfectly. This piece was adhered to a piece of Riding Hood Red Cardstock.
The DSP piece was adhered to a piece of Riding Hood Red & then adhered to the main piece of Early Expresso Cardstock. I adhered all my separate pieces to this main piece, as per the sketch. I wanted to tuck my ribbon ends under the main piece of Early Expresso Cardstock prior to adhering to the Base Card – Riding Hood Red.
To break the colours up a bit, I adhered Marina Mist Ribbon across the top of the card & tied a double bow-tie to the centre. I applied small Basic Rhinestones to the flowers & snowflake in the stamped image.
