Match The Sketch #187

August 3, 2017

Since I am on a roll with challenge sketches this week, I also decided to play along with Match The Sketch, unfortunately I missed the deadline but thought I would share anyway.  I cut strips of Berry Burst paper from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper stack in varying lengths and widths and attached them vertically to Whisper White card.  I embossed a strip of Crumb Cake card using the Petal Burst Embossing Folder and attached it horizontally across the Whisper White card and the designer series paper strips.  The Whisper White card is attached to Berry Burst card and scored and folded Thick A4 Whisper White card. I stamped the leaf from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set three times onto Whisper White card using Lemon Lime Twist ink and cut them out using the matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits Die I attached the leaves to the card front using Multipurpose Glue.  I cut a circle from Whisper White card using the Layeirng Circles Framelits Dies and then cut the flower from the centre using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.  I attached the Whisper White circle to a Berry Burst scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.  I attached the circle to the card front over the ends of the leaves using dimensionals.  I stamped the flower centre onto Whisper White card using Berry Burst ink and cut it out using the matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits Die before attaching to the flower centre.  Lastly I stamped the greeting from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the large flower background using Berry Burst ink.  I stamped the detailed flower over the top, also using Berry Burst ink.  I inked the three leaves from the leaf image using the Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker and used the stamp-a-ma-jig to place them on either side of the flower.

I was really happy with this card until I realised that although I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the greeting, I must have moved it slightly because the greeting is crooked. Since this only just became obvious to me, I am sharing it “warts and all”.  Does this happen to you?  Everything is done and then you notice something is wrong.  I might have to work on a way to “embellish”.

Bye for now,

      Thank you Vicky. I always seem to get the creating done but then the posting is a little late. Never mind, they take me out of my comfort zone and that can’t be all bad.
