Happy Thursday! I am popping in with a fun card to share. I am playing along with Papertrey Ink's Create Along With Us July 2015 Challenge. There are so many gorgeous cards to choose from all the designer creations, but I had to chose in order to play. I chose this card by Betsy Veldman. I was drawn to the bold colors, black background, and touch of sponging on the left side. I used the stamps and dies that I have to recreate the look.
I started with a smooth white card stock base. I then cut a PTI white linen card stock panel that I sponged on the left side with grape jelly and razzleberry inks. I add the true black panel to the top of the linen using foam mounting tape to add dimension. I tied my twine and bow then glued to the card base.
For the flowers, I used PTI The Sweet Life. I stamped the roses in shades of grape jelly with royal velvet and razzleberry with electric red. Betsy did add some summer sunrise to hers and I actually love that added color pop. I chose to leave that color off. For the leaves I used limeade and sour apple inks. I arranged flowers with some foam tape and glued on the leaves. I sponged another piece of linen card stock with grape jelly and razzleberry inks. I die cut this panel with the scripted sentiments die. I layered this colorful on over two other plain die cut pieces for added stability and dimension. I finished with a few clear sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
