Welcome to the newest challenge from Cardz 4 Galz! Dawn is hosting this challenge, #173, and chose the theme of using the sentiment as the focal point. When you finish here, I hope you will hop over to the challenge site to see the cards created by the rest of the design team. I hope you get inspired and play along with our challenge!
Here’s my card:
- I used the new gorgeous blue In Color 2022 – 2024 called Starry Sky, and I just love it! The base measures 8-1/2 inches by 5-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
- I trimmed a piece of the Sun Prints DSP to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches. for the envelope flap.
- Since it’s important to use a 3D embossing folder before trimming the cardstock in order to get an accurate size, I stamped the image first using Starry Sky ink. This gorgeous tree comes from the Amazing Silhouettes cling stamp set.. After embossing it using the bark 3D embossing folder, I trimmed it to 5-1/4 inches by 4 inches.
- I embossed another piece of white cardstock using the bark embossing folder. Then, I used the coordinating Amazing Thanks die set. This set includes the words themselves and the matching mats. Staying with my monochromatic color scheme, I cropped the mats from Starry Sky cardstock. After adhering the white and Starry Sky layers, I added mini-dimensionals underneath the matted words. I could’ve used the foam adhesive sheets for the height, but the minis did the trick easily.
- While I had the white cardstock out, I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches for the inside of the card. I didn’t stamp a sentiment on the inside so this can be an all-occasion card.
- Finally, I used a length of the new Starry Sky metallic woven ribbon around the white cardstock and tied it in a bow. In order to keep the bow in place and tied, I added a mini-glue dot beneath the bow.
- With that, I’d finished this coordinated card and envelope set.
Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today!
