SC 056/12…

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!  Hope you all have a great day & are spoilt rotten!
What a great little challenge Gwen set us this week.  Once I knew what I was going to use to creat my little card, it literally took about 5 minutes.  This size card is perfect for a little Thank You Note, slip inside or attach to a small gift bag.  The ideas are endless……  I also opted with a colour combination that I don’t think I have used for a really long time.

Measurements –
Base Card – So Saffron – 4″ x 8″ or 10cm x 10cm – Score in half & folded in middle
Layer 1 – Basic Black – 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ or 9.5cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 3 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ or 9cm x 9cm

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Mixed Bunch
Ink – Basic Black, So Saffron
Cardstock – So Saffron, Very Vanilla, Basic Black
DSP – First Edition Speciality
Ribbon – 5/8″ Victoria Crochet Trim, 1/8″ Basic Black Taffeta
Punches – Blossom, 3/4″ Circle, 1 3/4″ Circle, 1 3/8″ Circle
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals, Rhinestone

 I adhered the piece of DSP to the piece of Basic Black Cardstock before running first a piece of Crochet Trim across the bottom part of the card.  Once this Crochet Trim had been adhered to the layers, I then decided to run a piece of Taffeta Ribbon on top of that, tied a bow & adhered the whole piece to the Base Card – So Saffron using Snail Adhesive.

I stamped my image twice onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock, once in Basic Black which I punched out with the matching Blossom Punch.  The 2nd image was stamped in So Saffron, where I punched the middle out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch.  This small piece was attached to the centre of the larger image with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

A large circle was punched in Basic Black from the 1 1 3/4″ Circle Punch & the smaller using the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch.  These were layered on top of each other & then to the card with Snail Adhesive.  The punched images were layered on top of the circles with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my black Rhinestone, I coloured a Clear Rhinestone with a permanent Black Marker & popped it in the middle of the So Saffron image.

Don’t forget to pop on over to Sunny Challenges & Creations to check out what Kris, Gwen, Christine & Leah have created.  Create your card and add to Mr Linky.  I would really love to see what you can come up with using the challenge.

Have a great week

  1. Love the flower on the circles for your focal image. The two layers of ribbon is really lovely as well. The Newsprint dsp really finishes it off. As always the inside of your card is beautiful also.
