Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild, Challenge 88

February 13, 2017

I meant to get this card posted yesterday but my husband and I went to the local vegetable market.  I got lots of tomatoes, so I spent a considerable amount of time in the kitchen cooking up a storm.  By the time I had finished, between being tired from standing on my feet for a long time and the terrible heat, I spent the rest of the day resting.

The sketch at Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild for the past weekend was really a lovely one and one that I am sure will get a lot of use.  I started by embossing Whisper White card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder005I attached a piece of Sending Love designer series paper which I cut in half diagonally.  My trick for this was to cut a full sized piece for the front of my card and then place it back into the paper trimmer so that the top left hand edge sat on the 3cm mark and the bottom right hand corner sat on the opposite 3cm mark.  By cutting this way you get two cards from one piece of dsp.  I wrapped the top of the Designer Series Paper with a length of the Real Red ribbon from the  Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack before attaching to scored and folded Real Red card.

007I had created my flower previously by stamping the image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colouring using a Real Red and Old Olive Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen.  I hand cut the flower and placed it onto an oval of Whisper White card cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.   The image is attached to a Real Red scalloped oval cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies before attaching to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card I attached a strip of Sending Love Designer Series Paper  to the to the bottom of Whisper White card.  I wrapped the top of the Designer Series Paper with a piece of the Real Red ribbon from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack to the top of the Designer Series Paper.

I love this card, it is so bright and happy.  What do you think?  I would like to send a big thank you to Connie for this weeks sketch challenge.

    Gorgeous card Kris. Your fussy cutting is spot on – I had to look twice. Great job

    Thanks Vicky. Fussy cutting can be a bit hit and miss but this one is pretty good.
