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
