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.
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
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.
