Wow! My apologies! I can’t believe it has been a week since I’ve posted! Every day I’ve said I was going to work in my studio, and every day something has happened and I haven’t gotten down there. Unbelievable! Today we have a sketch challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary! It’s a fun one and a great way to use up some of those designer paper scraps you have hanging around! I also needed an anniversary card for my son and his wife…married 3 years yesterday…so took the opportunity to use this one for their card!
And here is my card for this week:
Here are the details:
- The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Daffodil Delight folded in half. I rounded the bottom corners with the Corner Punch.
- I cut a 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Whisper White and rounded the bottom two corners.
- I used leftover strips of Garden Party Designer Paper in the background approx 1/2 x 3-3/4″ and placed them in the background.
- I cut 1/2″ strips of Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight to place across the front.
- On scrap Whisper White, I stamped the leaves image from World of Dreams in Garden Green, then stamped the flower vine with Daffodil Delight around it. (It is hard to see, but the yellow ink shades the Garden Green in a really neat way!
- I punched it with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch, the layered it on a 2″ Circle of Garden Green cardstock. That was placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- I thought it needed a little punch of orange, so I used a Brights Button tied with Daffodil Delight Bakers Twine and placed it next to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The greeting is from Something to Say and stamped with Night of Navy ink.
I also finished off the inside a little bit with a 1″ strip of DSP and the greeting punched with the 2″ Circle Punch.
