Happy Wednesday! I have a fun, colorful card to share today. I am joining the team at The Color Throwdown as a Guest Star Stamper this week. I just love these beautiful colors! I am also playing along with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #259. We are to pick a sketch from the past! I picked #184 and flipped it to make a vertical card.
As soon as I saw the soft gray as an option, I just knew which stamp set I was going to "knead" to use! I started with MFT card stock in smooth white, gumdrop green, and grape jelly.
My card base is smooth white. I die cut a gumdrop and grape jelly card stocks with Blueprints 13 stitch frame. I stamped the gumdrop green with pinstripe background using gumdrop green ink. I stamped the grape jelly using houndstooth background with versamark creating a more distressed subtle stamped image. I cut the grape jelly panel from corner to corner. I lined the diagonal with a tiny stripe of smooth white peeking out. I glued the entire background to the smooth white base using foam mounting tape.
To comply with sketch elements, I die cut the stitched sentiment strip from Blueprints 20. I cut to fit on card. I added a layered die cut button from Blueprints 18 in gumdrop green. I threaded with some white thread. I finished my card with a few touches of silver sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
