Happy Saturday! I had a chance to play in my craft room today in between laundry loads and general cleaning. I combined three challenges for this card. I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge. I am using the colors from this week's Color Throwdown, and the Inspiration from Fusion Card Challenge.
I started with MFT Cardstock Sampler pack. I used grout gray, smooth white, sour apple, lemon drop, and grape jelly. I used grout gray for the base. I die cut the white panel using Blueprints 15 for stitched edging. I stamped this panel with MFT Woodgrain background stamp in grout gray premium ink. I ink distressed the edges just a little for some added dimension.
I really love the floral arrangement with the Fusion Challenge and just knew I had to play with some flowers dies to sort of recreate the look. I die cut the sour apple using MFT Leaf-Filled Flourish. I inked distressed the edges using versa mark to intensify the color of the leaves for added effect. I used MFT Flower Medley die namics to die cut the 8 petal die with smooth white card stock. I cut them several times and layered. I cut the center using the spikey center die that comes in the same die set. I used sour apple card stock because the flower centers in the inspiration piece look like they have a touch of green around the edges. I used Blueprints 12 to die cut the lemon drop centers. I used some orange ink to slightly ink the edges for added dimension. I also needed a touch of orange to comply with The Color Throwdown Colors. I hope this is enough orange!
I used another piece of grout gray card stock to die cut the stitched double ended fishtail banner from Blueprints 2. I used the sentiment from LJD Out on a Limb stamp set! The thank you was a perfect fit!
I finished my card with a few sequins and some tiny clear gems. I love how it turned out!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
