Today I am sharing my card for Card Chain Challenge August 2015 at Deborah’s Blog. She has the CCC challenge every month and provides 4 options to create your card. Read all about the CCC FAQs here. You still have time to sign up for September CCC. It is a fun challenge and you get to create a handmade card and send it to a friend.
This month I created my card following these 2 options, Color palette and sketch:
Here’s the card I sent to my friend, Janet:
Those gorgeous flowers are from Wavy Bloom stamp set. First I stamped them on a piece of vellum paper (I used Bazzill vellum paper) and then heat embossed them using VersaMark™ Ink Pad, Ranger™ White Super Fine Embossing Powder and Craft Heater.
After embossing the flowers, I colored them on the backside of the vellum with alcohol markers, and then cut them using Non-Stick Micro Tip Scissors.
Then I embossed a piece of White Daisy cardstock 4.25 in x 5.5 (same size with my card base) in using one of CTMH embossing folders, Quatrefoil with WRMK Evolution Advanced.
I cut a one of the Jackson paper packet, stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad.
Final step is adding all the pieces on the card base. First, I added the embossed White Daisy cardstock using Duck® Easy Stick™ Adhesive, next is the stamped Jackson paper packet and angled it to follow the sketch using Duck® Easy Stick™ Adhesive, then adding the vellum flowers using Tombow Vellum Adhesive runner, and last I finished my card with some backed-adhesive Sequins Gold Assortment.
And it is done.
All supplies (exclude the stamp set, embossing poweder, Craft Heater, Gold Sequins, VersaMark) are retiring. TODAY is the last day to get the Retiring Items! Visit my CTMH store to check the list of Retiring Items and to get them before they all are gone.
