This card was made for a weekend sketch challenge that I participate in. It’s from a MUST SEE blog site. Just hop on over to Beate’s Fresh & Fun blog and be prepared to say “Wow!”.
This is my creation. I work only on weekends at our local downtown hospital. So, I’m at work brainstorming my ideas for the weekend sketch challenges. Okay, so just a little distracted when working with post open-heart patients. LOL
My base is a 5 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Middle strip is 3″ x 5 1/2″ of Soft Sky with a 3 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ matting of Chocolate Chip. The upper half-circle was created with coluzzle cutting system and small corner rounder for scalloping. Also continued scalloped detail at base of card. The flower and background doodling (on soft sky) is from Doodle This. Happy stamp is from Polka Dots & Paisley.
The flower was easy and quick to assemble.
I used Whisper White and Soft Sky. Flower stamped with Chocolate Chip. Watercolored the white petals with Soft Sky, and used uniball signo white gel pen for Soft Sky cardstock petals. Middle of flower is a chipboard piece from On Board Blossoms & Basics covered with Chocolate Chip cardstock and edges were sanded. All held together & attached to card with rhinestone brad.
The sentiment of the card is simple, but just right for the card.
I wanted to have more than just the sentiment at the bottom. I used another doodle stamp from Doodle This. The flower is made with chipboard from On Board Blossoms & Basics. They are two “+” ‘s that I covered with Whisper White and Soft Sky. Sanded, sponged some color, dotted circles with gel pen and Chocolate Chip stampin’ write marker. I punched a 1/4″-inch circle out of Chocolate Chip cardstock. Flower held together with rhinestone brad and attached to card with stampin’ dimensional. If you look closely, you can see the details to the soft sky middle strip. Finished off with chocolate grosgrain and narrow white organdy.
