Sunny Challenge 77/13

April 14, 2013

SC-07713Our challenge this week has been set by Vicky and she has provided a great sketch and asked us to create a Mother or Female card.  Now this is right up my alley, I find it so much simpler to create female cards than male cards.

0134I embossed the top two-thirds of a piece of Whisper White card using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I stamped the greeting from the Delightful Dozen stamp set into the bottom right hand corner using Raspberry Ripple ink.  I attached the embossed Whisper White card to scored and folded Raspberry Ripple card.  I embossed a narrow strip of Whisper White card again using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I punched two strips of Raspberry Ripple card using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and attached one piece behind each long edge of the embossed card.  I wrapped this piece with Raspberry Ripple 1/2″ Stitched Satin Ribbon and then attached it to the front of the card to cover the end of the embossing.  I cut a 2″ circle from Whisper White card using the Circles #2 Originals Die and stamped the image from the Embellished Events stamp set using Gumball Green ink.  I punched a 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle from Raspberry Ripple card and attached the image to it.  I attached the scalloped image to the card front using dimensionals0144 I added Raspberry Ripple Dahlias to cover the stamped flowers (don’t tell anyone but I’ve had these since the catalogue launched and I think this is the first time I have used them).  I tied a piece of Raspberry Ripple 1/2″ Stitched Satin Ribbon around the ribbon already attached to the card and through a large Vintage Faceted Button.

All in all I love the look of this card.  What do you think?

Now for some more inspiration pop on over to Sunny Challenges and Creations and see what Vicky and Gwen have created.  Once you have created your card, scrap page or possibly a 3d item, add it to Mr. Linky.   I need some ideas for Mother’s Day so I can’t wait to see your creations.

Bye for now, Kris.

    This is oh so sweet Kris. Love the wee Dahlia buttons. I thought they were a wee larger, but they are the perfect size for this. ooxx

    Your card just “pops” Kris. Love it, especially the touch of the Gumball Green.
