Happy Friday! I have a couple of cards to share today! For the first card I am playing along with the Sweet Sunday Sketch and The Card Concept Inspiration Challenge. I went with a more classy & elegant style with this image.
I started with MFT card stock in grout gray, smooth white, chocolate brown, and cranberry cocktail. The smooth white background was die cut with Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Stax and stamped with Woodgrain background in grout gray ink. I stamped off once to give a more softer, lighter feel like the inspiration photo. The next layer I die cut using Blueprints 1 scallop frame with vellum. I stamped with Damask background in versamark and heat embossed with white ep to give the illusion of a doily. I used some foam tape to pop up the layer a bit for added dimension. The next layer with cut with the next smaller layer from Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Stax . Instead of cupcakes, I die cut my chocolate brown card stock using donuts die namics.
For my second card I am playing along with The Color Throwdown and MFT PageMaps Sketch Challenge.
I started with MFT card stock in smooth white, cotton candy, orange fizz, and after midnight. The base is smooth white. I die cut the cotton candy and orange fizz using Vertical Stitch Strips. I stamped the orange fizz with fine chevron background using orange fizz ink. I stamped the cotton candy using fine check background in cotton candy ink. I used foam mounting tape to attach these to the smooth white base. Next, I die cut the focal image using after midnight card stock using Tag Builder Blueprints 3. I die cut the hearts from the center. I lined with smooth white card stock.
I die cut the sentiment strip in vellum using Blueprints 12. I stamped the sentiment from Friends Like Us in versamark and heat embossed with some pink ep. I strategically glued this piece to the front. I stamped a piece of smooth white card stock using diagonal stripes background stamp in after midnight ink and die cut a small paper clip from Office Supplies. I die cut another clip and glued both together for some added stability. I tied some loose thread to the paper clip. I die cut a button from Blueprints 14 twice in cotton candy card stock and stamped the same as other cotton candy piece. I added threading used glue dot to adhere to card. Once again I finished my card with a few clear sentiments.
As always thank so much for stopping by!
