This week, it was my turn to set the challenge & with our challenges we don’t just get the sketch, but a 2nd part too, that being Flowers, Flowers, Flowers. How easy can it be!!!! We all love making cards with flowers. Let’s face it – they are the easiest cards to make!
Now on with my card –
Base Card – Soft Suede – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – score @ 4 1/8″ or 10.47cm & fold in half
Layer 1 – Pink Pirouette – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Very Vanilla – 5 5/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 14xm x 10.5cm
Layer 3 – Soft Suede – 4″ x 1 1/4″ or 10cm x 3cm
Layer 4 – DSP – 4″ x 1 1/4″ or 10cm x 3cm
Close Up of Embossing
Using my Embossing Buddy, I rubbed it over the piece of Very Vanilla, stamped my image onto Versamark & then Pink Pirouette Ink before stamping it onto the Very Vanilla Cardstock. I poured Clear Embossing Powder over the image, tapped off excess & applied Dazzling Diamonds on top, tapped excess off & heat set with my Heat Tool. You are not able to see the Dazzling Diamonds in the photo, but it does sparkle in real life.
I cut this piece into 3 equal pieces & adhered to the piece of Pink Pirouette using my Snail Adhesive.
I repeated the same technique for my senitment, except I used Soft Suede Ink. This was stamped directly onto the piece of DSP. I tore both sides of the DSP & adhered to the piece of Soft Suede Cardstock.
Tip – When tearing DSP or Cardstock, ensure you tear it towards you. This way you will get the torn section showing on your work
I adhered a piece of Ribbon along the bottom of the DSP, tied a bow, applied 3 Basic Pearls & adhered to the piece of Pink Pirouette Cardstock.
The Pink Pirouette Cardstock was then adhered to the Base Card – Soft Suede.
Wow, after reading this, it sort of come together really easy, but believe me, it took me a little longer to figure out what I was actually going to do for this sketch.
For my Inside, I again tore a piece of DSP, adhered to a piece of Soft Suede & then to Very Vanilla prior to adhering to inside of card. I wanted a small piece of Very Vanilla showing at the bottom – see photo. It broke the Soft Sude on Soft Suede.
